Beaver Stadium is named after James A. Beaver, who, according to Penn State's sports website, was a lawyer in Bellefonte at the outbreak of the Civil War who enlisted in the Union Army as a second lieutenant and rose to the rank of brigadier general prior to his discharge in 1864.
Here's a nifty YouTube video from 2010 looking at 50 years of Beaver Stadium history:
Beaver Stadium will be jam-packed this afternoon as Penn State takes on Alabama in a highly anticipated college football showdown. For full coverage, you can check out the website of the newspaper I work for, the York Daily Record/Sunday News.
