Nebraska has been winning despite the error of its ways. The 18th-ranked Cornhuskers don't want to tempt fate Saturday against a Penn State team that hasn't lost a Big Ten road game this season. The Huskers (7-2, 4-1 Big Ten) figure they need to play as clean a game as possible against the Nittany Lions (6-3, 4-1) to maintain the inside track to the Legends Division title. Nebraska has committed 23 turnovers, tied for sixth most in the Bowl Subdivision and four more than the Huskers had in 13 games last season.
