Final Penn State Home Game vs. Nebraska Set for 3:30 Kickoff

Penn State football’s final home game next weekend against Nebraska (7-3, 4-2) was announced this morning as a 3:30 kickoff, with televised coverage on the Big Ten Network.

This is Nebraska’s first trip back to Beaver Stadium after the emotional 2011 game following Joe Paterno’s firing and related fallout. Nebraska got the best of Penn State that game 17-14, and again in 2012 with a 32-23 victory in Lincoln, although not without an officiating controversy.

Most early betting lines have Penn State listed as two-point favorites against Nebraska. Indeed, the Cornhuskers will certainly be the easier opponent in the final two games for Penn State. It will travel to Wisconsin to end the season against the two-loss Wisconsin Badgers, who beat down on Indiana yesterday 51-3. That kickoff time has yet to be announced.

Nebraska is averaging 240.3 rushing yards per game, good for 16th in the country. That should be a tall task for Penn State’s defense, who will need to contain leading rusher Ameer Abdullah.

Hopefully the later kick time won’t interfere with students trying to get an early start on Thanksgiving break.
