Talking Penn State Football History: Bruce Bannon

We call the "Heyday" of Penn State football the years spanning 1968-1975. Penn State played in 7 Major Bowl Games in 8 years. Our guest this week was part of that time period. Bruce Bannon joins us on the podcast as a Penn Stater from 1970-1972. Bruce was a defensive lineman and was voted Defensive MVP of the 1972 Cotton Bowl. He talks about the 1972 Cotton Bowl vs. Texas and the New Year's Eve Sugar Bowl in 1972 vs. Oklahoma, while also elaborating on the two losses to Tennessee in 1971 and 1972. Bruce was drafted in the 5th round of the 1973 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins and played on their Super Bowl VIII winning team. Enjoy this look back to the "Heyday" of Penn State football with Bruce Bannon.
