Penn State Scandal: NCAA Wants PSU To Return Bowl Trophies, According To Report

The NCAA has requested that Penn State University return the six bowl trophies that the school won during the years spanning 1998-2011, according to a report by whptv.com.

In July, the association vacated 111 wins from former head coach Joe Paterno and the university in association with sanctions handed down from the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Now, the NCAA wants the trophies that correspond with those wins, as well.

Over that span, Penn State won the Outback Bowl (1999, 2007) and Alamo Bowl (2000, 2008) on two separate occasions in addition to wins in the 2006 Orange Bowl and most recently in the 2010 Capital One Bowl.

It is unknown at this time when Penn State plans to honor the request.

As of last week, the six trophies had been removed from the Lasch Building Lobby where they had previously been on display.
