STATE COLLEGE, PA. (AP) - No special plans for Joe Paterno on his 84th birthday _ just two Penn State practices.
The Nittany Lions spent Tuesday drilling in the morning and afternoon in Clearwater, Fla., as they get ready for the Outback Bowl against Florida on Jan. 1. Penn State is preparing this week at the spring training home of the Philadelphia Phillies before moving to Tampa this weekend.
It’s not all business for JoePa _ he will at least get a birthday cake at the team dinner Tuesday night.
Major college football’s winningest coach is wrapping up his record 45th season on the sideline. He’s also the all-time leader in bowl wins with 24. Paterno is under contract through the 2011 season.
