The Huskers made their first trip to Happy Valley in 2011 when the Huskers played Penn State in their first football after the Jerry Sandusky case broke. Now as the players prepare for the Nittany Lions, they expect a much different atmosphere.
Plus, there are not a lot of college football programs who have a shot at 9 or more wins for five straight seasons. The only schools I could find who could boast that numbers–Alabama and LSU in the SEC. Oregon in the Pac 12 and Boise State. You can count Ohio State, unless you count the vacated wins against them in 2010 and they won’t have five straight seasons of nine wins or more. That’s some rare company for the Huskers.
