Ohio State Buckeyes Ramp Up Hospitality for Rival Penn State

Thomas Northcut/Thinkstock(COLUMBUS, Ohio) -- In a show of solidarity with the alleged victims in Penn State's child sexual abuse case and that embattled university's coaches, athletes and fans, Ohio State's Buckeyes have been instructed to display an added level of good sportsmanship during Saturday's match-up against the Nittany Lions.

They also were encouraged to replace their Facebook profile photos with a blue-ribboned graphic promoting child-abuse prevention, Columbus, Ohio's The Other Paper reported.

The out-of-towner is Penn State's first away game since former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky's arrests on allegations that he sexually abuse eight boys over a period of 15 years and the attendant firing of legendary head coach Joe Paterno and Graham Spanier, former Penn State president, for not immediately contacting police when the alleged molestation was brought to their attention.
