Nebraska rallies, again, takes down Penn State

Taylor Martinez threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jamal Turner for Nebraska’s first lead, and the No. 18 Cornhuskers overcame a double-digit, second-half deficit for the fourth time this season in a 32-23 victory over Penn State on Saturday. Ameer Abdullah ran for 116 yards on a career-high 31 carries, and Martinez finished with 104 yards as the Huskers pounded away on the ground on a windy afternoon at Memorial Stadium. The Huskers (8-2, 5-1 Big Ten), down 14 points at half, got TD runs of 1 and 2 yards from Imani Cross to tie it at 20. Martinez threw

3rd quarter recap: Penn State 23, Nebraska 20

Nebraska’s Imani Cross ran for two touchdowns in the third quarter, but the Cornhuskers still trail Penn State, 23-20, entering the fourth quarter. Late deficits are nothing new to Nebraska, though, as it has rallied for a win in the final 15 minutes an FBS record three times in Big Ten play. Nebraska made the score 20-13 after Cross turned a handoff into a one-yard touchdown to finish off a 75-yard drive. The Cornhuskers tied the game at 20 after Cross ran two yards to paydirt to end a two-play, four-yard drive. Nebraska started in good field position when Daimion

2nd quarter recap: Penn State 20, Nebraska 6

Sam Ficken drilled two field goals, and Penn State now leads 20-6. The Nittany Lions held Nebraska to 13 yards through the air during the quarter. Penn State is currently on a 13-point run. An 84-yard drive that ended when Brett Maher made a 27-yard field goal helped the Cornhuskers narrow the deficit to 7-6. Nebraska threw just one time during that march downfield. The Nittany Lions opened up the lead, 10-6, after marching down the field for a seven-play, 26-yard drive that ended when Ficken drilled a 27-yard field goal. Jesse Della Valle’s punt return set Penn State up

1st quarter recap: Penn State 7, Nebraska 3

Penn State’s passing attack has looked sharp over the first 15 minutes of action, with 90 yards, and the Nittany Lions lead 7-3 at the end of the first quarter. Penn State’s Zach Zwinak ran for 59 yards and one touchdown in the quarter, although he did have a costly fumble in Nebraska territory. The Nittany Lions got on the scoreboard first, rattling off a four-play, 74-yard drive that ended in a score when Zwinak pounded in a 50-yard touchdown run. No. 16 Nebraska closed the gap to 7-3 when Brett Maher kicked a 32-yard field goal to put a

Bowl projections: Six Big Ten teams on Week 11 list

No changes at the top of my bowl projections this week with Nebraska and Michigan taking care of business, and Wisconsin and Northwestern being off. But the “lower-tier” bowls are in flux. I don’t have Purdue, Iowa or Indiana in my projections, meaning the Big Ten will fill just six of its eight bowl slots. The 3-6 Boilermakers—losers of five in a row–must win out to get bowl eligible, finishing at Iowa, at Illinois, vs. Indiana. Not likely to happen.

Wildcats ranked in BCS Standings for first time since 2008

For the first time this season, the Big Ten has two teams ranked in the BCS Standings. No. 24 Northwestern, which was idle last week, finds itself in the poll for the first time since 2008, while No. 16 Nebraska moved up four spots after winning at Michigan State. Perfect Ohio State, which is ranked No. 5 in the AP Poll, is not eligible for the BCS Standings. Neither is 6-3 Penn State.

How did we do? Week 10 picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 11, we need to review how BTN.com fans, Tom Dienhart and yours truly did with our Week 10 predictions. Believe it or not, we all went a perfect 5-0 in a week that, to be honest, wasn’t littered with many tough games. So, we’ll enter Week 11 with BTN.com fans and Dienhart tied for the top spot.
