Trace McSorley threw for 325 yards and three touchdowns, and Saquon Barkley rushed for 158 yards and three scores in the Nittany Lions' 56- 44 victory over Nebraska. On a cold, wet day at Beaver Stadium, the Nittany Lions were in control of the game from the second quarter onward. And while their inability to stop Nebraska in the final two quarters – the Corn- huskers rallied for 34 second-half points aAer falling behind 42-10 at halAime – may have dark- ened the mood in a few postgame tailgates, it didn't put much of a damper on James Franklin's victory celebration.
