About this Book

WE ARE . . . SPORTS BY THE NUMBERS™. The new, exciting, and completely original book series continues with an in-depth look at the proud history of Penn State football.

THE TEAM: Rooted in success achieved through dignity and situated amongst the rolling farmland of Pennsylvania's "T" region, the Penn State football program has won two national championships and posted seven undefeated, untied seasons as far back as 1887. The Sports by the Numbers™ franchise combs through the program's rich history, from Rip Engle's glossed-over tenure to Joe Paterno's legacy as the face of a university and a football juggernaut. By the book's conclusion, the SBTN guys will have Nittany Lion nation chanting in chorus, "WE ARE . . . PENN STATE!"

THE FORMAT: The presentation created by the authors distinguishes Sports by the Numbers™ from everything else available today. Penn State Football is composed of ten chapters, each offering one hundred numbered "mini-stories"-facts, anomalies, records, coincidences, and enthralling lore and trivia. Each chapter begins with an introduction that highlights the many exciting stories detailed in that chapter.

INTERACTIVE: Numerical entries tagged with SBTN-All Star or SBTN-Hall of Fame logos are scattered throughout this book. These logos indicate that more information is available at our website Readers and sports fans can then visit our site and participate in the SBTN blogs and conversations regarding those numbers, creating an interactive community.

Sports by the Numbers™ books are not just for die-hard sports fans, but for every fan and sports history reader who loves sports and wants to know more about their heroes and favorite teams.
