STATE COLLEGE, Penn. — Police in riot gear descended upon downtown State College late Tuesday as thousands of Penn State students gathered along Beaver Avenue and on such campus locations as Old Main, the main administrative building.
Crowds began gathering outside Old Main on the University Park campus when word spread that the university`s Board of Trustees was conducting a conference call, presumably to discuss the future of the football program.
