Penn State vs. Nebraska: Who has the edge?

Tommy Armstrong Jr. will start his seventh game with Taylor Martinez (foot) watching from the sideline. Christian Hackenberg will make his 11th start. Armstrong isn’t asked to throw it as much in the Cornhuskers’ run-heavy approach. He hasn’t been that accurate when he has thrown as he’s completing just 53 percent of his passes. Armstrong’s turned the ball over, too, throwing seven interceptions to seven touchdowns. He is being intercepted once every 16 drop backs. Hackenberg continues to develop — he made some key throw-aways last week and took a few big shots to make throws. He doesn’t seem to be hitting any freshman wall as he continues to make throws down the field. Advantage: Penn State.
