Huskers Fight For Fourth Straight Win
State College, Pa. - The No. 2 Nebraska men’s gymnastics team looks for its fourth straight win against the Penn State Nittany Lions in State College, Pa., on March 17. The Huskers have not won four consecutive meets in the regular season since 1999. A first-place finish for the Huskers will also keep the team undefeated in Big Ten Conference meets.
Last Time Out
Week after week, the Nebraska men’s gymnastics team continues to impress. Last weekend deemed no different as the Huskers took first place at the Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio. Nebraska finished with 404.000 over Ohio State (401.600) and Air Force (390.250). Jake Bonnay, Alex Magsam and Anton Stephenson paved the way for NU, claiming event titles. Bonnay grabbed the floor title (13.90), Magsam claimed the rings title (14.05) and Stephenson again claimed the vault title (14.85). The Huskers’ first-place finish in Columbus solidified a regular-season sweep of both Ohio State (3-0) and Air Force (2-0).
Scouting the Competition
The Nittany Lions enter the competition after a first-place finish at Arizona State on March 3. Penn State came in first with 402.450 over Arizona State (392.200) and Navy (388.150). Junior Michael Burns led the way for the Nittany Lions with an event title on both parallel bars (14.00) and high bar (13.55). After barely missing the 2017 NCAA finals, Penn State returns a strong sophomore class, including pommel horse national champion Stephen Nedoroscik. The last time the Huskers and Nittany Lions met in the regular season was in 2017, where Nebraska came out on top 418.350 - 409.600. Penn State is seeking revenge after Nebraska knocked them out of the 2017 NCAA Finals.
