Beaver Stadium

A new poll shows widespread support for renaming Penn State's Beaver Stadium for legendary football coach Joe Paterno.  The Quinnipiac University poll released today shows Pennsylvania voters favor the idea 46 to 40 percent.  College football fans back the move by a 55 to 37 percent margin.  Pollsters say the results show a "lingering respect" for the late coach in spite of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.  Penn State fired Paterno in early November.  He died in January at age 86 of complications from lung cancer.
