Rose Bowl Officials Would ‘Embrace’ Penn State at Game, AP Says

Nov. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Penn State University’s football team would be “embraced” by the Rose Bowl if the Nittany Lions qualified for the game, the Associated Press reported.

Kevin Ash, the bowl’s chief administrative officer, told AP that officials would “welcome with open arms” whatever school wins the Big Ten Conference championship, which generally secured a spot in the game at Pasadena, California.

Neither Ash nor Dan Mihalik, a Big Ten spokesman, immediately returned calls or e-mails seeking comment on the AP report.

Penn State fired coach Joe Paterno and President Graham B. Spanier after former football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was charged with 40 criminal counts tied to alleged sexual molestation of eight boys from 1994 to 2009. Athletic Director Timothy Curley, 57, and Gary Schultz, 62, a senior vice president who oversaw university police, were charged with perjury and failing to report the allegations. All say they are innocent.

Neither Paterno nor Spanier were charged.
