Joe Paterno's Last Win at Penn State? Mike McQueary Was the Quarterback in 1997

The NCAA sanctions levied against Penn State by Mark Emmert took away all the school’s victories from 1998-2011. We’ve already examined what that has done to Joe Paterno’s career wins total. Here’s an interesting twist to the punishment: Guess who was the QB on the 1997 Penn State team? Mike McQueary. He testified in the Sandusky Trial.

Paterno’s last official game: 1997 Citrus Bowl (Jan. 1, 1998): 21-6 loss to Steve Spurrier and Florida. Here’s a recap.

Paterno’s last official win: 35-10 over Wisconsin at Beaver Stadium on November 22nd.
