(State College) -- Penn State enters its final home game of the season against Nebrasksa looking to secure a winning record for 2013.

For 17 seniors, it will be their final game at Beaver Stadium.

Coach Bill O'Brien says he wants the senior class to go out on a winning note.

"To me they set the tone every week," he explained at his weekly news conference. "They showed our younger guys how to practice and came back with intensity whether it was following a win or a loss. Again, they stuck with this university, they stuck with this program and they didn't have to after the sanctions came out, and I think that says it all about this class."

A win today would also give the Nittany Lions a 4-0 mark in conference games at Beaver Stadium this year.

Penn State kicks off with the 7-3 Cornhuskers at 3:30 this afternoon.
