LINCOLN — Freshman forward Jaycie Johnson saw an opening, sprinted with the ball between defenders and drilled a kick into the back of the net to give Nebraska's surging soccer team a 3-2 double-overtime victory against Penn State on Sunday.

It was the shot heard 'round the Big Ten. The 21st-ranked Huskers beat the team that has won the past 15 conference titles — and moved within a victory of winning this year's crown. Nebraska, 9-1 in conference games, can clinch the championship with a win Friday at home against Indiana (6-4).
