Back to the box
Joe Paterno coached Penn States homecoming game against Purdue from the Beaver Stadium press box.
The 84-year-old Hall of Famer is recovering from right shoulder and pelvis injuries suffered after a receiver ran into him in practice Aug. 7. Paterno was feeling better last week before two of his players pulled him back to avoid another collision during the 13-3 win Oct. 8 over Iowa.
Paterno said that left him sore including his surgically repaired hip and that he was concerned that he might be a distraction to his players on the sideline. He was on the field for pregame warmups Saturday before heading upstairs for the Nittany Lions 23-18 victory.
Tigers stay Strong
Even when top-ranked LSU isnt playing its best, the Tigers are still finding ways to dominate games.
Jarrett Lee and LSU got off to a slower start than usual against Tennessee but wore the Volunteers down in a 38-7 victory on Saturday. It was a record sixth consecutive victory over a Southeastern Conference East Division opponent for the Tigers and their seventh consecutive win by a double-digit margin.
It was a departure in the series in which three of the last four games have been decided by a touchdown or less.
