Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee has progressed this week through the concussion protocol and was on track after practice Thursday for clearance to play Saturday at No. 10 Penn State. "We have not decided what that means about playing time," coach Mike Riley said. Lee has started every game for the 4-6 Cornhuskers. He was injured in the first half last week at Minnesota and Patrick O'Brien finished the game.

FPI: Penn State overwhelming favorite vs. Nebraska

The Cornhuskers have won the last four meetings between these teams, including all three games since they joined the Big Ten in 2011. The Nittany Lions' last victory in the series came in 2002, but ESPN's FPI likes their chances at home on Saturday.

Penn State linebacker Manny Bowen remains out this week against Nebraska after missing Saturday's game against Rutgers because of a violation of team rules (unspecified). Bowen started Penn State's first nine games and ranks third on the team in tackles (51). Brandon Smith likely will start again alongside Jason Cabinda and Koa Farmer.

Though Miami currently leads the nation in Strength of Record, the Hurricanes still don't crack FPI's top 10 list. This is because FPI is rating team strength going forward, not describing what has already happened. That's also why Ohio State and Penn State -- likely out of the Playoff race -- remain in the top 3.
