In both 2010 and 2011, Penn State Head Coach Joe Paterno reached a legendary coaching milestone versus the Northwestern Wildcats. Last year, the all-time FBS coaching wins leader notched his 400th career win in Happy Valley, as the Nittany Lions nipped the Cats 35-21.
This time, the 85-year-old grandfather of 17 and father of five tied Grambling legend Eddie Robinson for 408 career coaching wins. That’s the most all time for an division 1 college football head coach. The win at Northwestern meant gridiron history was made this evening on the shores of Lake Michigan just outside Chicago.I’ll be back after the postgame media session with reaction from JoePa and the Nittany Lions players.
