The Huskers were in need of a great win after the disappointing loss to Michigan State last week. But that does not mean that Penn State was just going to roll over and let it happen.
The game between the Huskers and the Nittany Lions took place in the Penn State stadium and was the senior day game for Penn State. 17 seniors played their last game in Penn State today.
During the whole game, both teams played exceptionally well, although there were some easy mistakes made by the Huskers that should have been avoided and would have helped the Huskers stay ahead during the game.
Despite these mistakes, the Huskers accomplished some amazing plays. One such play was Ameer Abdullah who ran the ball back after a kickoff to receive the first Husker touchdown of the game.
Regulation game time ended with the Huskers and the Nittany Lions tying 20-20.
The Huskers were able to hold off the Nittany Lions from making a touchdown in overtime and their kicker was unable to make the field goal that was needed to keep them in the game.
Next was the Huskers turn to give it a try. They were held back by Penn State and also needed to rely on their kicker to win the game. The first attempt was 37 yards, but a false start by the Huskers forced the final kick to be a 42 yard attempt.
The Huskers made it and won the game 23-20.
