    LINCOLN, Neb. -- Bo Spencer scored 19 points to lead four Nebraska players in double figures, and the Cornhuskers defeated Penn State 70-58 on Wednesday night for their first Big Ten victory.

    Toney McCray added 13 points and Caleb Walker and Dylan Talley scored 12 apiece for the Huskers (9-7, 1-4).

    Tim Frazier scored a career-high 30 points for the Nittany Lions (9-9, 1-4) for his conference-leading eighth 20-point game.

    The Huskers, in their first season in the Big Ten after moving from the Big 12, avoided their second 0-5 conference start in three years.

    Nebraska took control early and went to the locker room up 34-22 after putting together 10-0 and 8-0 runs.

    The Huskers went 7 1/2 minutes with just one field goal in the second half before Spencer drove the baseline for a 53-40 lead. They put the game away on Spencer's and McCray's back-to-back 3-pointers for a 62-44 lead.
