The Huskers improved to 16-9 overall and 6-8 in the Big Ten behind a late run to end the first half and their best offensive third quarter of the season to take control and never look back. Penn State slipped to 7-18 overall and 1-13 in the conference. The Huskers return to Big Ten road action this weekend by traveling to Evanston, Ill., to take on No. 19 Northwestern. Tip-off between Nebraska and the Wildcats from Welsh-Ryan Arena is set for 2 p.m (CT).
