Photo: Penn State Hockey Is Wearing "409" Decals On Its Helmets Tonight To Celebrate Joe Paterno

Penn State hockey's '409' decals.

The Penn State men's hockey team is celebrating Joe Paterno getting his wins back tonight. 

The Nittany Lions will be wearing "409" decals on the back of their helmets for their home game against Michigan State. Paterno, who had 111 wins vacated by the NCAA due to the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal, is now the winningest coach in the history of major college football with 409 career victories. The NCAA ruled Friday morning that Penn State would be getting back the 112 wins taken away because of the scandal.

Here's the decal: 

The number 409 has been seen all over Penn State's campus today.
