Huskers Defeat Penn State and Grab First Win of the Season
The Nebraska Cornhuskers picked up their first victory of the season with a win over Penn State on Saturday.
Nebraska got off to a hot start with a 10-0 lead after one quarter and extended their lead to 21-6 at half.
The Huskers would hold off a second-half rally from Penn State to win 30-23.
Luke McCaffrey got his first start for the Huskers and faired okay going 13-21 for 152 yards passing with one touchdown and one interception.
He did give the Huskers a boost on the ground, adding 13 carries for 67 yards and one touchdown with his legs.
It was the defense on two occasions with big stands inside their own 10-yard line that was probably the difference between a win and a loss for Nebraska.
Penn State falls to 0-4 and Nebraska improves to 1-2 with a date on the horizon next week against Illinois.
