It was the second game of the season. The Quakers were coming off a season-opening victory over Vanderbilt.
Among those the Quakers took on in the game was Penn State sophomore Lenny “Sputnik” Moore, who was NFL Rookie of the Year after joining the Baltimore Colts in 1956.
In what would ultimately be the final time the Red and Blue would take down Penn State in football, the Quakers defeated the Nittany Lions, 13-7, under coach George Munger.
Though it would only last a week, Penn cracked the top 25 at No. 20 in the country following the win.
In Munger’s final season as coach, and only losing season, his Penn team went 3-5-1.
During his coaching campaign, Franklin Field held upwards of 75,000 spectators for big games.
The Quakers won the overall series 25-19-4 after the yearly matchup between the two Pennsylvania schools ended in 1958.
