“I would just ask we show a new, high level of sportsmanship, civility and class,” Meyers said.

Police said a vandal may have smashed a ground-floor window Thursday night at Sandusky’s home. The window was covered Friday with what looked what a white tarp.

State College police Capt. John Gardner said he does not expect problems at Saturday’s game. Authorities are monitoring Facebook and Twitter, and Penn State’s residence life department is organizing group discussions for students to talk out their feelings about the week’s events.

The university implemented increased security measures for all athletic events this weekend, including a ban on bags _ purses included _ at all arenas, and Gardner said there will be a “significant police presence” at Beaver Stadium.

“I’ve got a lot of faith in this community,” Gardner said. “I’ve got a lot of faith in the vast majority of Penn State and I think they’re going to do the right thing this weekend and I implore them to do the right thing. Come out, show support for the victims of this terrible scandal and enjoy themselves at a football game.”
