With tensions rising, Penn State officials have yet to announce the fate of the Joe Paterno statue.
Friday however, NFL Network reporter Kimberly Jones broke the news that the statue will come down this weekend.
Jones' statement was then backed up by sportscaster Bonnie Bernstein who also confirmed the statue's removal.
Penn State officials have not confirmed this and are saying the statue will remain throughout the weekend.
Critics have called for the statue, which has stood on the campus for a decade, to be removed.
The latest report on the child sex scandal concluded that Paterno was aware as early as 1998 that his assistant coach Jerry Sandusky had been accused of molesting children and helped cover up a 2001 incident.
Paterno, who died in January, was fired by the university in November in the aftermath of Sandusky's arrest.
