PSU Wrestling Knocks Off No. 6 Nebraska

Penn State's wrestling squad grabbed its second road victory of the weekend, this time over the No. 6 Nebraska Cornhuskers.

The Penn State wrestling team (6-0, 2-0 B1G) had its second road showdown of the weekend against No. 6 Nebraska (7-1, 1-1 B1G) on Sunday after rolling over No. 9 Minnesota on Friday. Although the Lions trailed early in the match, they had little difficulty knocking off the Huskers as they deeper into the matchups, winning seven of ten bouts for a 27-14 victory.

What's more impressive is that the younger Lions defeated a Husker squad featuring six seniors. Penn State's series of wins featured a pin by Bo Nickal and three major victories.
