Zach Dirlam@Zach_DirlamSenior Analyst IINovember 10, 2012

Final Score, Nebraska 32 Penn State 23 

The Nebraska Cornhuskers trailed the Penn State Nittany Lions 20-6 at halftime, but the Big Red eventually wore down Bill O'Brien's team in the second half for their fourth comeback victory of 10 points or more this season.

The win keeps Nebraska atop the Big Ten Conference Legends Division with the Michigan Wolverines, while the Nittany Lions simply came up short in their opportunity to play the role of the spoiler for the Cornhuskers' Rose Bowl aspirations.

Ameer Abdullah and Taylor Martinez combined for 220 rushing yards and freshman running back Amani Cross scored both of Nebraska's rushing touchdowns.

Even with a 21 carry and 141-yard effort by Zach Zwinak, the Nittany Lions could not overcome three turnovers and a safety late in the game.

The Cornhuskers improved the 8-2 overall and 5-1 in Big Ten play, while the Nittany Lions fell to 6-4 on the year and 4-2 in conference games.
