When you listen to Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini’s post game comments, you can tell the Penn State scandal affected him on a personal level. He said after Saturday’s 17-10 win that if it were up to him, they wouldn’t have played the game at all. “The situation going on is bigger than football.”
Pelini also said both teams agreed to sit down and pray before the game to put the game on the field in perspective. NU’s defensive secondary coach Ron Brown led both teams in the prayer.
