College Football Schedule, Week 11: Nebraska Vs. Penn State Headlines Saturday's Big Ten Action

Nine Big Ten teams play on Saturday with both of the conference's divisions still mathematically up for grabs. A lot of focus will be on the Penn State vs. Nebraska game, as it marks the Nittany Lions' first game without Joe Paterno as head coach since 1965.

Despite all the controversy and scandal that is going on in Happy Valley, which led to the firing of head coach Joe Paterno, football will go on with the No. 12 Nittany Lions taking on the No. 19 Nebraska Saturday, in the first game without Paterno as head coach since the 1960s. Penn State currently tops the Leaders division with an undefeated 5-0 record thanks in large part to holding opposing offenses to just 62 points. Nebraska on the other hand is battling for the Legends' top spot, trailing Michigan State by a game at 3-2. The game will be aired on ESPN at noon with Dave Pasch, Chris Spielman, and Urban Meyer calling the action.
