THIS WEEK: Penn State will look to post a perfect record in Big Ten road games for just the third time in its 20-year conference history when it visits Legends Division co-leader, No. 18/16 Nebraska. The Nittany Lions will be playing their final road game of the season and will visit Lincoln for the first time since 2003.

The Nittany Lions limited Purdue to its fewest points since 2008 in their 34-9 victory last weekend at Ross-Ade Stadium, as senior Matt McGloin passed Kerry Collins on the career 300-yard passing games charts with 321 yards for his fifth such career effort. McGloin threw two TD passes in his fourth straight game. It was also the senior's seventh straight 200-plus yard passing games, besting Collins' school record of six set in 1994.

Brandon Moseby-Felder hauled in six catches for 129 yards and one touchdown, setting career-highs in all three categories. Allen Robinson made five catches, giving him 57 this season, just seven away from breaking the Penn State season record of 63, held by O.J. McDuffie and Bobby Engram.

Zach Zwinak made his first career start and delivered a career-high 134 yards rushing to lead all rushers in the game. Michael Zordich rushed for a pair of touchdowns in the game.

Nebraska is coming off a last second 28-24 win at Michigan State. Junior quarterback Taylor Martinez ran for 205 yards and two touchdowns and threw for 160 yards and two scores in the win.
