STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Another milestone arrives for Penn State during the upcoming off week, but players have no plans to keep tabs of this event.
Ex-assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, whose arrest last year sparked the scandal that plunged the program into turmoil, is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday. He'll likely spend the rest of his life in prison following his conviction on 45 criminal counts including child sex abuse.
Penn State players who had nothing to do with the scandal, but bore the brunt of the NCAA's wrath, have long moved on. They're focused on football and what's turning into a promising season — not the courtroom.
The Nittany Lions (4-2, 2-0 Big Ten) are on a four-game winning streak heading into their bye week following a 39-28 win Saturday over previously-unbeaten Northwestern.
