On Friday night, Penn State University received an anonymous bomb threat for Beaver Stadium. Today, the Nittany Lions host Nebraska at noon, so this threat was taken very seriously. Beaver Stadium has been secured since Tuesday given the mess that has gone on in Happy Valley, but police have used bomb-sniffing dogs to check the stadium and no bombs or suspicious items were found.
Given the circumstances in Happy Valley, there is increased security for today's game at Beaver Stadium. The inspections prior to entering the game are expected to be more thorough than usual, to prevent anything out of the ordinary happening on what's sure to be a very emotional Penn State crowd for the first Nittany Lions game without Joe Paterno since 1966.
