    A group of Penn State alumni angry over the school’s handling of the Jerry Sandusky scandal are gathering on campus to let their voices be heard.

    Penn State graduates and other supporters plan to rally Saturday, beginning at 10 a.m., on the school’s Old Main Lawn.

    The group is demanding the resignation of Governor Tom Corbett, Penn State President Rodney Erickson and the board of trustees. Organizers also say they want board members to publicly admit they made mistakes in the handling of the scandal.

    The group cited the board’s lack of crisis planning following a report on the initial grand jury investigation of Sandusky as a reason why they should resign, according to Centre Daily.

    The group also cited the board’s acceptance of the report from former FBI Director Louis Freeh in his investigation of the scandal as another reason for their resignation, according to Centre Daily. On Friday, PSU trustees held a meeting in which they promised to move forward with a detailed evaluation of changes recommended by Freeh.

    The rally comes the same day of a home football game between the Nittany Lions and Navy. The game begins at 3:30 p.m.
