[Philly] When it was over, Nebraska fans lined both sides of a pathway to applaud the Nittany Lions as they left the field.
Linebacker Michael Mauti said he had a brief but heartfelt conversation after the game with Huskers coach Bo Pelini.
“He was very respectful,” Mauti said. “I’ve got a lot of respect for Coach Pelini. All the players came up to us just saying how proud they were of us and the way we stuck together throughout this season. There was a lot of respect there mutually. They’re a class act.”
You gotta love those Corn-huskers. As long as your playing football somewhere, you’re a God. If only the refs—-ah never mind. In all seriousness, I’m sure it means a lot for the players to be treated with respect from opposing fans. Thanks, Nebraska.
