Grand jury reports Sandusky brought victim to Outback Bowl in Tampa

Tampa

Report: Sandusky traveled with boy

In the months before his retirement in 1999, former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky traveled with "Victim 4" — a 12- or 13-year-old boy — to the Outback Bowl in Tampa, a grand jury reported. In its report, the statewide grand jury in Pennsylvania concluded the victim had been "repeatedly" subjected to sexual assaults at a variety of locations, including "at bowl games to which he had traveled with Sandusky." The grand jury reported that the boy had become a "fixture" in the Sandusky household. "Victim 4 was listed, along with Sandusky's wife, as a member of Sandusky's family party for the 1998 Outback Bowl," the grand jury found. On Thursday, Tampa Police Department spokeswoman Laura McElroy said "no one has been in touch with us" from Pennsylvania about the case.

'Outrageous,' Obama says of scandal

President Barack Obama believes that if the allegations of child sex abuse at Penn State are true, then "what happened is outrageous," his spokesman Jay Carney said Thursday. The White House would not get into the details of the decision by the university on Wednesday to fire Joe Paterno, Carney said. "The president's thoughts and prayers, and all our thoughts and prayers, are with the victims of the abuse and the family members of those victims," Carney said.

Paterno could lose national honor

Along with his job as head football coach at Penn State, Joe Paterno may also lose a shot at the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Pennsylvania's U.S. Sens. Pat Toomey, a Republican, and Bob Casey, a Democrat, said Thursday they are pulling their support for Paterno's nomination for the nation's highest civilian honor. Republican Rep. Glenn Thompson also nominated Paterno earlier this year.

    There is a reason why the air in Tampa Bay is filled with playoff talk. If Thursday night's 12-8 Bucs preseason win over the Jaguars is any indication, it's also going to be filled with footballs thrown by quarterback Jameis Winston.

    Doug Martin gets the Bucs’ only touchdown  on a 2-yard run, squeaking past linebacker Telvin Smith in the first quarter. He has five carries for 30 yards.
