Senior Day at Beaver Stadium could present a classic similar to last year's version as the unpredictable 6-4 Nittany Lions will host the underachieving Cornhuskers.

Nebraska is fresh off a 41-28 home loss to Michigan State that saw the Huskers turn the ball over five times.

Penn State cruised to a 45-21 win over Purdue in Beaver Stadium, where they are 5-1 on the season.

Bo Pelini's Huskers have won both matchups since joining the Big Ten, and Nebraska leads the all time series, 8-7. Last year's contest in Lincoln resulted in a 32-23 win for the home team despite 141 rushing yards from Zach Zwinak.

The Nittany Lions will have the benefit of not having to face Taylor Martinez as the senior quarterback is out for the year. His replacement, Tommy Armstrong, has completed 53 percent of his passes this year and has seven touchdowns to go with his seven interceptions. 

Due to the upcoming division re-alignment, Nebraska and Penn State are not scheduled to play again until 2017.

Place: Beaver Stadium, State College, Pa.

TV: Big Ten Network

Radio: Penn State Network Affiliates

Spread: Penn State is a slight favorite, giving 2 points this week, according to VegasInsider.com.
