Penn State hosts Nebraska on Saturday
The Corn Huskers are mere shadows of their former selves, so to speak. Big Red, who gave us some epic battles in the past, is a much smaller Red. Having endured coaching and recruiting issues, and the hiring of a new AD, they’re in third place in the weak Big Ten West, no threat to leader Wisconsin.
Unranked Nebraska (4-6, 3-4 Big Ten) arrives at St. Joe Memorial Stadium at Beaver needing a win there plus a win over Iowa the following week to be bowl eligible. Meanwhile, the #10 Nittany Lions (8-2, 5-2 Big Ten) need to win out to ensure that they play on New Year’s Day instead of one of several Toilet Bowls. (The Nittany Turkey Shitty Bowl Name winner for the 2017-18 bowl season is the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl in St. Petersburg, which beats out the former title holder Foster Farms (aka Tainted Chicken) Bowl in Santa Clara by a slim margin).
Nebraska is coming off a sound thrashing by Minnesota (5-5, 2-5), 54-21, while PSU put the clamps on Rutgers (4-6, 3-4) in a 35-6 Homecoming win at St. Joe. [Read more…]
