Nebraska leads Penn State 7-6 at the half, the lead coming because of a missed PAT by the Nittany Lions.

Nebraska has 198 total yards, while Penn State has 159. Nebraska backup quarterback Ron Kellogg III replaced Tommy Armstrong Jr after Armstrong struggled early on. RK3 is 11-for-13 for 113 yards and one touchdown, while Ameer Abdullah has 12 carries for 69 yards.

Penn State's Christian Hackenberg is 10-for-19 for 80 yards and a touchdown, while Zach Zwinak has 14 carries for 68 yards.

Nebraska had an 84 yard drive, but Abdullah fumbled at the one as he was going in for a score.

Other Notes:

--Quincy Enunwa had two catches in the first half to increase his career receptions total to 100. He is the eighth player in school history with 100 career catches.

--Ameer Abdullah totaled 68 all-purpose yards in the first half. He now has 4,304 career all-purpose yards to move into third place on the career all-purpose yards list, trailing only Heisman Trophy winners Johnny Rodgers (5,586) and Mike Rozier (5,445).

--The Nebraska defense had three sacks in the first half. Nebraska has had at least three sacks in six of its past seven games.
