Nittany Lions Den:
Two big names in college football history squaring off against each other with conference title hopes on the line. It doesn’t get much bigger than that.
This is another chance for members of this football team to play in a great atmosphere. Another chance for them to play on a national stage. Another chance to showcase Bill O’Brien’s team to recruits.
As the Ohio State game was two weeks ago, this is another one of those bigger than life games the Nittany Lions get to play. Add in the fact that it’s going to over 70 degrees Saturday in Lincoln and this will be a better atmosphere than all but a few bowl games.
It’s just nine games into Bill O’Brien’s tenure and just nine games into the severe NCAA sanctions, but it’s becoming increasingly clear that Penn State football will not become irrelevant over the next four years.
First of all, as has been noted numerous times already, many thought this team would disintegrate this season...

Nebraska controls their own destiny when it comes to representing the Leaders Division and play for the Big Ten Conference. The Huskers will play host to Penn State this year after visiting Happy Valley last year in a game that was more than just a game.
It's year two of the Patrick Chambers era in Happy Valley and year one saw this team build a very solid foundation despite a last place finish in the Big Ten. That foundation is on the back of one of the best players in the conference, Tim Frazier.
Expecting miracles and a year in and year out contender in just two years at Penn State is asking a bit much, but if you believe...
