Linebacker Navorro Bowman and defensive tackle Phil Taylor appeared in court Friday to plead guilty to disorderly conduct in exchange for prosecutors' dropping more serious assault charges.
Each was sentenced to one year of probation and 100 hours of community service.
Two other players involved in the Oct. 7 fight have resolved their cases.
All four were charged for allegedly beating up a Philadelphia man who was attending a party at Penn State.
Taylor, who will be a junior in the fall, and Bowman, who will be a redshirt sophomore, had been kicked off the team while their cases were pending. A message left for a team spokesman regarding their status wasn't immediately returned.
