Huskers Rally to Nip Lions: Nebraska trailed 20-6 at half­time before outscoring Penn State 26-3 in the second half on its way to a 32-23 victory.
   Taylor Martinez’s five-yard strike to Jamal Turner with 10:57 left gave the Huskers their first lead, 27-23. Martinez’s 56-yard pass to Kyler Reed helped set up the toss to Turner, and also put Reed over the 1,000-yard receiving mark for his career.
  Martinez and I-back Ameer Abdullah both finished with 100-plus yards rushing.

Nebraska found a way to keep its momentum moving toward Indianapolis.”

Tad Stryker

Vogel

Home field has to mean something and, when Nebraska’s needed it most this season, it has.”

Brandon Vogel

Flounders

The game came down to Lehman’s fumble. Or maybe it was Lehman’s touch­down that was not called.”

Bob Flounders
Harrisburg Patriot-News

Jones

The lack of an overturn was inexplicable.”

David Jones
Harrisburg Patriot-News

Put it on a T-shirt, Nittany fans. We’ll hang it in a frame next to the Crooked Sideline shirts from 1982.”

Even if Lehman had been awarded a touchdown, Nebraska still had plenty of time to rev up its high-powered offense.”

Neil Rudel

York

Once they can clean up some of their messes, there’s no telling how good they might be.”

Randy York
Huskers.com
