Penn State has beefed up security for Saturday's noon game at the request of Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne.  After the little student gathering in the streets of Happy Valley Wednesday night, which included flipping a news van on its side, I'd say that request was justified.

And while Osborne said Thursday that he feels certain his school's travelling party and fans will be safe at Penn State, he's urging them to help themselves. His order: don't wear red.

"I just don't know if it's a good idea in this circumstance to stand out," Osborne said Thursday night.

"I'm 99 percent sure this is going to be pretty much like a normal game and they're not going to be treated any different there than they would be anyplace else. That's just my instinct. I guess you can't promise. There's nothing sure."
Like a normal game? I have been to hundreds of sporting events and have never once thought of an old man violating a young boy. Yet that thought will enter the minds of all 111,000 people at Beaver Stadium. It won't be a normal game. I just don't get why Osborne is asking fans not to wear red. I don't foresee PSU fans taking their frustrations out on their visitors.

As long as Cornhusker fans remain clear of any creepy Penn State assistant coaches (We're looking at you Mike McQueary. But don't worry, we won't tell), they should be secure.
