Mike McQueary Was Penn State’s QB In Paterno’s Last Win
Sports Fan Insider
(CBS) One of the NCAA’s sanctions against Penn State Monday morning included the school vacating all wins from 1998-2011.
That means Joe Paterno’s last”official” win was a 35-10 victory over Wisconsin in State College Nov. 22, 1997.
Who was Penn State’s quarterback in that game?
None other than Mike McQueary.
McQueary, you might remember, was a central figure in the demise of Joe Paterno and the Penn State football program. In 2002, McQueary, a graduate assistant for the football program, witnessed former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky sexually assaulting a young boy in the locker room showers.
McQueary later told Paterno, who discussed the incident with his superiors, leading to one of the biggest cover-ups in the history of college sports.
Oh, the irony…
