The Nebraska Cornhuskers could have their hands full tonight, as they travel to face the Penn State Nittany Lions, in a battle of two Big Ten Conference opponents.
The Cornhuskers and Nittany Lions have yet to face each other this season. Nebraska is sitting at 3-2 in Big Ten play through five games and the Nittany Lions are 2-3 through five conference games.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers are looking to keep a winning record in Big Ten play with a road win against Penn State. The Cornhuskers won their most recent game, beating Wisconsin, 63-59.
Nebraska shot 43 percent from the floor and a terrible 14 percent from three point land in the home win. Nebraska also had 13 turnovers in the loss. Something they can’t allow to happen on the road against Penn State.
The Cornhuskers have been lead by James Palmer Jr. He leads the team in points per game with 15.8 this year. Isaac Copeland and Glynn Watson Jr. are also playing well for Nebraska this season.
Defensively, the Cornhuskers are allowing 70.4 points per game and scoring 74 points per game this season. Nebraska is going to need a total team effort to get a win in this one.
Penn State Nittany Lions
The Nittany Lions are 2-3 in conference play this season, and recently took a bad road loss at Indiana 74-70. The Nittany Lions shot 50 percent form the floor and 43 percent from three in the loss.
Despite shooting the ball well against the Hoosiers, Penn State still came away with a four point loss. A lot for the reason why was because they turned the ball over 14 times.
The Nittany Lions are playing solid defense this season. The team is allowing 65 points per game this year. If Penn State is going to defend home against Nebraska, they must lock down James Palmer Jr.
