Penn State trails Nebraska, 10-0, at halftime of boring game


Beaver Stadium was shaking. Literally.

The press box on the west side of the stadium shook, as fans responded to seeing receiver Curtis Drake catch a deflected pass and take Penn State into Nebraska’s half of the field midway through the first quarter.

But the fans had little else to cheer about in the opening half, as the Nittany Lions went into the intermission trailing their visitors, 10-0.

Nebraska went ahead, 3-0, on a 41-yard field goal by Brett Maher in the second quarter. The Cornhuskers added to the lead as Ameer Abdullah scored on a two-yard run with 44 seconds left in the half.
