20 Years Ago on Oct. 3, 1998 -- Penn State vs. Ohio State in College Football

October 3, 1998: More NCAA football content signifying another Saturday, featuring No. 7 Penn State at top-ranked Ohio State. Ohio State won 28-9.

Also note the wording of the promo, which carefully picks an ambiguous tense that works for pre-game and post-game, since we weren't doing weekend updates for regular college football games.
[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
