Penn State Falls to Nebraska, 17-14

Emotions, Excitement Abound During Penn State-Nebraska Game

The fans packed Beaver Stadium. The student-organized "Blue-Out" was a success. There were emotional moments, as well as exciting moments as Penn State took on Nebraska on Saturday afternoon. Here is a recap of some of the best/most touching moments after one half of play today.

A (Candle) Light in the Dark

In the midst of perhaps the most emotionally and mentally grueling week of most of our lives, we were left searching. Searching for a sliver of light in the middle of all of the chaos. A light of normalcy. A light of unity. A light of hope. Last night I found more than a singular light. I stood among over 10,000 students, alumni, and State College residents in what was the most beautiful gathering I’ve ever been a part of. So many times this week, we’ve been distraught about our now controversial coaching legend and have forgotten about the chief issues at hand. For about an hour, it wasn’t about Joe Paterno and football, it was about the victims of the Sandusky child abuse scandal and their families.

Gameday: Penn State vs. Nebraska

At noon, 20 seniors on the Penn State football team will take to the field at Beaver Stadium for the final time. Despite the Sandusky incident and the firing of head coach Joe Paterno, there is still a game to play. According to Weather.com, it will be 50 degrees at noon when Penn State takes on Nebraska. As always, Onward State and StateCollege.com have you covered for all of you gameday needs.
