Penn State battled back in the second half of Sunday’s game, but the end result was another close and hard-fought loss for the Nittany Lions this season.

Entering Sunday’s game, Nebraska had not won a B1G game since January 2020. That did not deter the Huskers as they came out fighting and opened up a lead in the second half.

With nine minutes left to go in the game, the Nittany Lions were facing a nine-point deficit. It is not where the team expected to find themselves, but Jim Ferry was able to adjust and turn the team around.

Down the stretch, Penn State mounted a comeback and took a 61-60 lead with just under two minutes to go. Unfortunately, the Nittany Lions would not score again with Nebraska’s Teddy Allen hitting a game-winning bucket with 12 seconds remaining.

It was a tough loss for Penn State, making it back-to-back losses by a total of three points after the loss to Michigan State. The loss also dropped the Nittany Lions to 4-9 in the conference this season.
