The 1887 Penn State Nittany Lions football team would become the school's first undefeated team, going 2–0,<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> and the school's only unscored-upon team. The quarterback of this team was George H. "Lucy" Linsz (1887–1889). For whatever reason, Lucy Linsz only played for three years (only 1887 at quarterback). He later changed his last name from Linsz to Lins, probably during World War I. In 1887 Penn State's school colors were dark pink and black.

Despite the article title, the school did not adopt the Nittany Lion as its mascot until 1907.
