Penn State Vs. Nebraska Score: Fourth Quarter Sees Huskers In Charge

The fourth quarter began with the Nebraska Cornhuskers maintaining a 17-7 lead over the Penn St. Nittany Lions. PSU's had a monumental challenge in the days leading up to this game, and now they've got a long way to go to win it. Ten points doesn't sound like that much, but remember we're talking about Penn State.

The Nittany Lions opened the fourth with a drive into Nebraska turf, but elected to punt on fourth down. It was nearly downed at the one, but slipped into the end zone.

The lone PSU score was a five-yard run by Stephfon Green, countering a 14-yard Rex Burkhead rush earlier in the third.
