(AP) Former Penn State President Graham Spanier attended the school's men's basketball game against Nebraska on Saturday, making a rare high-profile appearance on campus in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.


Spanier and two other high-ranking former administrators face charges including perjury and obstruction for allegedly covering up sex abuse allegations against Sandusky, a retired assistant football coach. All three are awaiting a preliminary hearing and have maintained their innocence.


Spanier left under pressure days after Sandusky's November 2011 arrest, while Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno was fired. A university-sanctioned investigation by former FBI director Louis Freeh accused Spanier and Paterno of participating in a cover-up to protect the school's image.


Paterno died almost a year ago. His family has firmly denied the allegations of a cover-up.
