Penn State Football Announces Player Names On Jerseys

The Penn St. Nittany Lions are announcing changes to their iconic uniforms for the first time in nearly 50 years. While the uniforms will stay the same color for now, a name plate will be added to the back of the uniform. The uniforms will also be adorned with a blue ribbon symbolizing child abuse victims.

The Penn State uniforms had remained unchanged throughout the entire tenure of deceased head coach Joe Paterno. Obviously, in light of the Freeh Report, the football program is trying to distance itself from that era. Another part of the uniform that will most likely be changed soon will be the helmets.
