O'Brien asks fans to unite for Penn State finish

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Penn State coach Bill O'Brien wants to move on from the fumble flap.

The Nittany Lions lost 32-23 to Nebraska on Saturday, and quarterback Matt McGloin hinted that a ruling on Matt Lehman's fourth-quarter fumble was an example of the powers-that-be trying to keep the Penn State down in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child-sex abuse scandal.

O'Brien said no one is out to get the Lions. He's calling for unity as the Penn State (6-4, 4-2 Big Ten) finishes the season with home games against Indiana and Wisconsin.

On the disputed fumble, the Lions thought Lehman got the ball over the goal line for a 3-yard touchdown. Officials ruled he dropped the ball before it crossed the line. The replay official didn't see enough to overturn the call.
