Nearly fifty players from the 1982 National Championship team were on hand for the contest, and prior to kickoff Shane Conlan offered his opinion on the keys to the game. "Obviously we need to stop the option," said Conlan, one of the finest linebackers in Penn State history. "If we can do that, we'll be ok." Asked if he'd like to help out, Conlan laughed, "I just wish I could still run."

The Penn State defense was more than up to Conlan's challenge, holding Nebraska to 252 yards rushing and only 76 yards passing, while the Lions racked up just shy of 500 yards of total offense. Zack Mills threw for 259 yards and Larry Johnson rushed 19 times for 123 yards and two touchdowns. Back up quarterback Michael Robinson added a wrinkle to the Penn State offense, running four times from various alignments, for 56 yards and two touchdowns.

"Our defense was very tough," Paterno said. "We were better than we've been in a long time."

Earlier in the week, Nebraska head coach Frank Solich, who grew up near Johnstown, said he has happy memories of his Pennsylvania childhood. "I like the area, to me it's a beautiful area. Anytime you grow up somewhere in your early childhood, you always have some fond memories." Unfortunately for Solich, this was not an evening for making happy memories.

"In the second half, they put points on the board, and it just kind of snowballed,'' Solich said. "It did seem we played the game with greatly diminished energy as we fell behind."

"I think Nebraska just had one of those nights," said Paterno in the understatement of the day. "I really thought we had a shot at winning, but anyone who thinks you have a shot at winning by 30 points is nuts," he added.
