Penn State coach Joe Paterno coached No. 23 Penn State against No. 3 Alabama from the Beaver Stadium press box.

The 84-year-old coach is recovering from injuries to his right shoulder and pelvis sustained during an accidental hit in practice Aug. 7.

Paterno said he was feeling better earlier this week and was optimistic he would return to the sideline for the Crimson Tide. He also said he was still in some pain.
