Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema says he has no plans to recruit the players at Penn State.
NCAA sanctions in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal will keep the Nittany Lions out of a bowl game for four years and players are being allowed to transfer to another school and get on the field right away. Penn State coach Bill O'Brien has been working hard to keep the players he has...
What’s going on this afternoon at the plaza where the Joe Paterno statue was located outside Beaver Stadium? Oh, nothing, it’s just being transformed into green space.
