First Game Day In Decades Without Coach Paterno

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State's football team is preparing to play its first game without Joe Paterno since Lyndon B. Johnson was president. The legendary coach was fired amid a sex
abuse scandal involving a former defensive coordinator.

Instead of the usual "whiteout," Beaver Stadium is expected to be awash in blue in a sign of support for the alleged victims. Donations for two child-abuse prevention organizations are being accepted at the stadium gates. Other fund-raisers taking place have already raised more than $200,000.

Last night thousands of students gathered on campus for a candlelight vigil for the boys Jerry Sandusky is accused of molesting.

Penn State's board of trustees and the university's new president have vowed to seek the truth behind a child sex abuse scandal that has vexed students and alumni and has threatened its
reputation.

President Rodney Erickson says the trustees' decisive action to fire Paterno and former President Graham Spanier sets a course for the university's future.

An assistant coach who told his bosses in 2002 that he witnessed a child being raped was placed on administrative leave Friday.
