UNIVERSITY PARK (WKOW)-- Penn State University will have to give back 14 years worth of football trophies.
That's part of the NCAA's punishment against the university for the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal. The school says it'll return all football trophies won from 1998-2011 to the groups that awarded them. The NCAA has already issued a few other sanctions against the school, including a $60 million fine and a ban on bowl games for four years.
Jerry Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach, was found guilty in June of sexually abusing 10 young boys over several years.
