Penn State has had a rough week and they could not overcome Rex Burkhead and the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Burkhead ran for 121 yards and a touchdown for Nebraska (8-2, 4-2) before the Nittany Lions scored 14 points on two second-half touchdown runs by Stephfon Green. It was a tough day for the Nittany Lions who played without their coach Joe Paterno who was fired this week. It had to be tough on the players to get ready for the game, but they never quit and played hard throughout the game.
A touching moment before the game can when Nebraska and Penn State players should solidarity on the field before the game. It was a great thing that the Nebraska team to do, as it showed that the game was just a side note to the horrible things that have been going on at Penn State, that very few seemed to know about. Many people thought they should have cancelled the game, but that would not have been fair to the fans or the players who had nothing to do with it. In the end, it was a good game and Penn State should be proud of their football team and their fans for keeping it classy all the way through.
