STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - The bronzed statue outside Beaver Stadium is gone. The record of 409 career victories erased by the NCAA.
But reminders of the late head coach Joe Paterno still abound on Penn State football game days around Beaver Stadium, like the ``409'' tailgate banners in the parking lots.
One fan last month left a life-sized cardboard cutout of Paterno at the site where his statue once stood. Another left a Paterno mini-bobblehead doll.
Reminders will likely sprout up again Saturday when the Nittany Lions host No. 24 Northwestern for the homecoming weekend game.
Paterno's legacy has been blemished following NCAA sanctions against Penn State for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. But some alumni, former players and fans remain distrustful of the school's actions and angry about the severe NCAA penalties.
