The Penn State football team gave it their all but lost its first game in the post-Joe Paterno era Saturday afternoon.

The final score was 17-14 Nebraska.

The game began with both teams coming together in an emotional prayer huddle and a moment of silence for the victims of former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuse.

Tears streamed down thousands of faces as the crowd - packed with alums -- sang the school song.

None of that mattered on the field today.

"It was an unprecedented situation in the history of college football," said new coach Tom Bradley moments after the game ended.
