Penn State Expected To Send Bowl Trophies To NCAA

The NCAA has requested that Penn State University return the six bowl trophies that were awarded to the college over the years spanning 1998-2011, which have been deemed as years of violation in connection with the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

It is unknown at this time when Penn State plans to honor the request.

In July, the association stripped the university and former head coach Joe Paterno of 111 wins stemming from that time period. Now, they want the bowls connected with those wins, as well.

Over that span, Penn State won the Outback Bowl (1999, 2007) and Alamo Bowl (2000, 2008) on two separate occasions in addition to wins in the 2006 Orange Bowl and most recently in the 2010 Capital One Bowl.

As of last week, the six trophies had been removed from the Lasch Building Lobby where they were previously on display.
