(Newser) – "Pedobear" turned up to poke fun at Penn State during the Nittany Lions' 30-14 loss to the Houston Cougars at the Cotton Bowl stadium in Dallas. A fan, dressed as an Internet meme used to mock pedophiles, wore a sign reading: "Keep quiet and don’t tell anyone” beneath the Lions’ logo. The prank, linked to the Jerry Sandusky scandal, appears to have been the brainchild of users of a Texas Longhorns message board, according to Deadspin, which has a photo of Pedobear on the Jumbotron.
