Joe Paterno holds more bowl victories (24) than any coach in history. He also tops the list of bowl appearances with 34.[9] He has a bowl record of 24 wins, 9 losses, and 1 tie with his latest win in the 2007 Alamo Bowl. Paterno is the only coach with the distinction of having won each of the current four major bowls-Rose, Orange, Fiesta, and Sugar-as well as the Cotton Bowl, at least once. Under Paterno, Penn State has won at least three bowl games each decade since 1970.

Overall, Paterno has led Penn State to two national championships (1982 and 1986) and five undefeated, untied seasons (1968, 1969, 1973, 1986, and 1994). Four of his unbeaten teams (1968, 1969, 1973, and 1994) won major bowl games and were not awarded a national championship.

Penn State under Paterno has won the Orange Bowl (1968, 1969, 1973, and 2005), the Cotton Bowl (1972 and 1974), the Fiesta Bowl (1977, 1980, 1981, 1986, 1991, and 1996), the Liberty Bowl (1979), the Sugar Bowl (1972, 1982), the Aloha Bowl (1983), the Holiday Bowl (1989), the Citrus Bowl (1993), the Rose Bowl (1994), the Outback Bowl (1995, 1998, and 2006) and the Alamo Bowl (1999 and 2007).

Since joining the Big Ten Conference in 1993, Penn State under Paterno has won the Big Ten football championships two times (1994 and 2005). Joe has had 21 finishes in the Top 10 national rankings.

UP-Date - July 23, 2012:

The NCAA announced its punishments toward Penn State this morning in a live press conference, and they were major. From the loss of scholarships, to a four year bowl ban, today's penalties are going to cripple Penn State.

The program itself wasn't the only thing hurt today. Joe Paterno's reputation and legacy have taken an absolute beating over the past week, and now, some of that beating will be reflected in the record books. With NCAA president Mark Emmert announcing that all of Penn State's Paterno-coached wins from 1998-2011 have been vacated, 111 Paterno wins are officially wiped away, dropping him from first to 12th on the all-time wins list in College Football.

Bobby Bowden, who said the Paterno statue should be taken down weeks ago, will now be recognized as the all-time winningest coach in major college football. It was only weeks ago Grambling had previously requested the NCAA vacate all 409 victories of Paterno's victories in light of the Freeh report. (Grambling was the former home of Eddie Robinson, who is near the top of the all-time wins list.)

An updated list of the all-time winningest coaches in college football history would read as such:

John Gagliardi - 484

Eddie Robinson - 408

Bobby Bowden - 377* Division I All-Time Leader

Bear Bryant - 323*

Glenn Scobey Warner - 319*

Larry Kehres - 317

Roy Kidd - 314

Amos Alonzo Stagg - 314*

Frosty Westering - 305

Tubby Raymond - 300

Ken Sparks - 299

Joe Paterno - 298*

* - Indicates FBS coach
