In a game that was close throughout, Nebraska was able to overcome an unfavorable call and costly turnovers to defeat Penn State in overtime at Beaver Stadium, 23-20.
At times it was a snowy, blistery scene in Happy Valley, which made throwing the football a difficult proposition. But the insertion of Ron Kellogg III at quarterback in place of Tommy Armstrong for Nebraska might have made the difference.
Kellogg played the final three quarters for the Cornhuskers and sparked the offense, completing 20 of 34 passes for 191 yards and a touchdown. Nebraska was paced on the ground by the always-reliable Ameer Abdullah, who rushed for 147 yards but also lost a fumble at the goal line in the first half.
Had it not been for two Nebraska turnovers that essentially created a 14-point swing, as well as a questionable personal foul penalty late in the game, the Huskers might have had an easier time of it. Either way, they were able to spoil Penn State's senior day and improve to 8-3 (5-2) on the season.
