Nebraska Vs. Penn State Halftime Score: Rare Deficit For Nittany Lions

A little bit of offense peered through the Big Tenniness in the second quarter, as the Nebraska Cornhuskers fired in a 41-yard field goal at the 11-minute mark and drove within the red zone in the closing minutes. At the break, the Penn St. Nittany Lions trail, 10-0 -- they've given up 10 or fewer points in six of their nine games so far this year, so we could be in for a relative shootout.

An unpopular pass interference call on Nick Sukay gave the Huskers a first down inside the 10, setting up a two-yard bull for the score by Ameer Abdullah. The yardage game has been even, but the Huskers have done a better job at stringing plays together, acquiring three more first downs.

Nebraska will get the ball after the break.
