Police: PSU fan beaten in case of mistaken fan ID

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - November 1, 2010

The Centre Daily Times reports that the assault happened Saturday, the night the Nittany Lions defeated the rival Wolverines 41-31.

Police say the men attacked the fan because they thought the colors of his costume indicated he was a Michigan fan. Michigan's colors are blue and yellow.

The attackers have not been identified.

Police say the victim sustained a possible broken nose and was treated and released from a hospital.
