No overtime heroics this time for Lions
Things were looking good for Penn State after the first play of the fourth quarter when tight end Jesse James took a pass on third down from quarterback Christian Hackenberg and rumbled for a 46-yard touchdown after fending off Husker safety Corey Cooper who couldn't knock James out of bounds. The score put the Nittany Lions up 20-17 after Sam Ficken's PAT.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State's penchant for overtime success ended Saturday in a game that Nittany Lions coaches and fans hoped would send a special senior class out as winners.
Though the Lions still have a chance to end the season with a victory next Saturday at Wisconsin, one final win at Beaver Stadium would have been a memorable way to say goodbye.
