Nebraska mounts another comeback win against Penn State


Same story, different day for Nebraska.  It's a running theme for the Big Red this season.

Trail by double-digits and then mount an improbable second-half comeback.

Well, everything went according to script as the Huskers picked up their fourth straight win with a 32-23 win over Penn State.

After a rough first half, Taylor Martinez completed all six of his second half tosses and the Blackshirts forced a fumble midway through the fourth quarter to lead the Huskers to victory.

While it may not be the game-plan to fall behind and rally, Nebraska has proved no deficit is too great.

"I told the team. We've been here before, we've been in worse situations to start the second half and in the back of my mind I was hoping we could get even by the fourth quarter," Head Coach Bo Pelini said.

"Win the four games that we just won, in the fashion that we won them, with the mental toughness that we played, I'm really proud of this football team," Kenny Bell added.  "It's not easy to put together wins like that in the Big Ten. And, I'm proud of us for doing it."

Nebraska plays it's last home game of the season Saturday against Minnesota.
