If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

After the horrific events at Penn State, Corn Nation, along with SB Nation's Penn State site Black Shoe Diaries, started supporting the universities efforts to donate $500k to RAINN - the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network.

As of tonight, that effort (obviously along with many others), has lead to $489,000 being donated.

Starting tonight, RAINN will be auctioning a full size helmet with the signatures of Nebraska and Penn State Heisman Trophy winners Johnny Rodgers, Mike Rozier, Eric Crouch and John Cappalletti. The auction will go live on eBay at 9PM EST on Wednesday, November 30th and will end at 9PM EST on Wednesday, December 7th.

The helmet was donated by the Johnny Rodgers Youth Foundation. All of the proceeds of this auction will be donated directly to RAINN's prevention and education initiatives and will provide support for victims of sexual violence and their loved ones through the National Sexual Assault Online Hotline ( The helmet sits on a plexiglass base and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

This is a chance to own a very rare piece of college football to add to your collection. I would appreciate if you could post this on Facebook, Twitter, and spread the word wherever you can to assist Penn State in reaching their goal of $500k.

For the auction link and photos of the football please go to Husker Max. The auction link is live here.

Husker Max will keep information updated throughout the auction. THANK YOU!
