All of the Special Olympics athletes and their families will be invited to be head coach Dawna Denny's guests of honor at the match against Nebraska on Sunday at 11 a.m.
Penn State hosts No. 69 Iowa tonight at 6 p.m. at the Sarni Indoor Tennis Center, where the Nittany Lions are undefeated this season. There will be a T-shirt toss as well as free pizza for all fans in attendance.
