Through the years, countless players in nameless jerseys have carried the ball across the goal line for Penn State. This photo illustration combines an image of Blair Thomas scoring for the Nittany Lions, with an image of fans in the east stands cheering the play in a game Penn State went on to win 45-19 against Bowling Green on Sept. 5, 1987 -- Joe Paterno's 200th career victory. Notice the location of the Blue Band at the front of the senior section, seen in the lower-left corner, and the flags atop the stands, which included the names of opponents in the pre-Big Ten era for the team.
