Penn State acting athletic director Dave Joyner said on Thursday tonight's weekly radio show that the blue ribbons added to the football uniforms this fall will be placed on the backs of helmets.
The ribbons will honor the victims of child abuse.
The ribbons represent one of two major changes to the Penn State uniforms. Names are also being placed on the backs of jerseys this fall.
Penn State begins the season Sept. 1 against Ohio University.
