We're not talking about the field at Beaver Stadium, though, but rather the university's Blue Golf Course. They were taking part in the fourth-annual Lettermen's Golf Tournament.
The tourney was the brainchild of athletic director Tim Curley and associate athletic director for football operations Fran Ganter, a pair of former players.
A few years back, they were looking for a way for other former players to reconnect with the program, each other and head coach Joe Paterno. Since that was difficult to do during the season, they opted for a late-summer golf tournament.
