Nebraska picks off Penn State to take double-digit lead
Nebraska is off to a great start vs. Penn State.
With a 7-0 lead early in the first quarter, the Huskers picked off Penn State QB Sean Clifford and nearly took it back to the house.

That’s excellent play by defensive back Cam Taylor Britt, but an awful throw by Clifford.
Fortunately for the Nittany Lions, Nebraska wasn’t able to cash in for six. Luke McCaffrey’s wobbly 3rd-and-goal pass was dropped in the back of the end zone by receiver Kade Warner.
McCaffrey did lead a touchdown drove on the game’s opening possession. This is his first start in place of Adrian Martinez.
Penn State is in danger of falling to 0-4 for the first time since 2001. Nebraska is also looking for its first win of the season.
