Penn State vs. Nebraska: After Emotional Pregame, Football

Good afternoon from an emotional Beaver Stadium. There has been plenty said about this week's events elsewhere on the site, and there will continue to be. For now, we'd like to keep the focus of this stream on the football game itself.

With that said, Matthew McGloin is apparently today's starting quarterback. He was the first player off the bus, signaling he'll get his third start of the season. It's unclear whether Rob Bolden, who has seen action all season, will get any time with former head coach Joe Paterno no longer calling the shots.

Co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Jay Paterno is expected to coach from the sidelines today.

The Penn State players took the field by marching slowly through the tunnel and out on to the field, arms linked. They were greeted by dozens of lettermen from years past, then joined Nebraska players in a prayer circle before kicking the game off.

Stay tuned for score updates.
