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.

Nebraska made the score 20-13 after Cross turned a handoff into a one-yard touchdown to finish off a 75-yard drive.

Week 11 Previews: Here comes PSU vs. Nebraska

It’s time to get ready for Week 11 of the Big Ten season. And it shapes up to be interesting on many fronts. Can Nebraska make it four wins in a row and knock off Penn State? Wisconsin’s game at Indiana in some ways will be a de facto Leaders Division championship game. Meanwhile, Northwestern plays at Michigan in a “Survivor” contest in the Legends Division.

Revsine: Our expert crunches Week 11 numbers

It’s November, and, just as we all predicted at the outset of the season, the most intriguing game in the conference in Week 11 pits Indiana against Wisconsin. Ok, no one actually predicted that. In fact, even though it’s now a reality, not everyone is actually admitting it. Said Indiana coach Kevin Wilson, “This isn’t a big game. If it was, we wouldn’t be 4-5 and we wouldn’t be playing at 12 o’clock.” Wait, don’t Michigan and Ohio State play at 12 o’clock? Whether Wilson wants to acknowledge it or not, it’s a big game. A Hoosiers win would genuinely

McGloin: 'Penn State football is greatest team sport to play'

Penn State is the surprise team in the Big Ten. There are many reasons for that. One of the biggest is quarterback Matt McGloin. He has been a revelation running Bill O’Brien’s pro-style offense that makes liberal use of the passing game. The senior leads the Big Ten in passing yards (2,436) and touchdown passes (18) with just three interceptions while completing 62 percent of his attempts. McGloin entered 2012 with 3,119 career passing yards, 22 touchdowns, 14 picks and a 54 percent completion percentage in his first two seasons, both of which he spent continually fighting for the starting
