Penn State’s Beaver Stadium honors only teams that have gone undefeated, won national championships or won conference championships.
On Saturday afternoon, Penn State will make an exception. Before the Nittany Lions‘ season-ending date with Wisconsin, the university will honor the 2012 team by putting its name – “2012,” to be precise – alongside 1982, 1986, 1994 and other memorable seasons in the program’s illustrious football history.
“As the sun sets tomorrow afternoon, the 2012 Penn State Football season will conclude, but for years to come, coaches, fans, players, and everyone associated with Penn State Football will be able to look towards the southeast corner of Beaver Stadium and remember this group of resilient players who showed their love and loyalty when times were tough.”
What a wonderful gesture to the players who stayed, the seniors who led and the coaches who lifted PSU to an absolutely unforgettable 2012 season.
