We all know by now that one heck of a storm has been brewing in State College — the site of this Saturday’s Nebraska game.

But what waits for the Huskers in Happy Valley? Will Penn State’s players, fueled by a love for Joe Pa come out swinging? Or will they be on their heels, like the University administrators and coaching staff have been all week?

According to USA Today, Joe Pa (who will retire at the season’s end has been ousted effective immediately) said he is devastated by the Sandusky sex scandal. He said it was one of the great sorrows of his life. He said he wishes he had done more.

As if the emotional buttons needed to be pushed any harder, it’s also Senior Day at Penn State this Saturday.

With no scandal on the books, this trip to College Station would have been tough for Nebraska. Given how important it is for Penn State to right its ship on the field of play — an area where they have some degree of control — I believe what was going to be a tough game to win, is now several degrees tougher.

Where are you on this game? Will the Huskers prevail in a tightly fought contest? Or will Penn State’s players deliver a big big win for their coach and their program in a time of need?
