Amid the horrifying and tragic turn of events recently at Penn State, it is difficult to focus on football. The Nittany Lions, despite being submerged in turmoil, took the field once again Saturday for their inaugural battle with Nebraska.
Despite a valiant, tough-fought contest, the Huskers bested the Lions 17-14. The game played out much like one would expect it to be considering the teams involved; it was a low-scoring, defensive affair that hinged on a few big plays that determined the outcome.
With that in mind, what can we take away from Penn State's second loss of the season at the hands of the Cornhuskers?
