Barkley, who rushed 14 times for 142 yards and three scores in the first half, surpassed 1,000 yards on the ground for the third straight season, just the second player in school history to do that.
Last week against Rutgers, Gesicki's fourth-quarter touchdown catch tied him with Jesse James for most career touchdown passes, as well as single-season touchdown catches."I had an idea, going into the game, of all the possibilities,"Gesicki said".
Barkley gave the Lions the lead 57 seconds into the game when he broke off a 65-yard touchdown run, but Nebraska took advantage of two Penn State special-teams breakdowns to reel off 10 straight points.
PSU, which closes out the regular season next week at Maryland, generated its most points since it put up 63 against IL in 2005. He racked up 371 yards of total offense by passing for 325 yards on 24-of-36 passing and rushing nine times for 46 yards.
A short punt by the Huskers' Caleb Lightbourn bounced off the Lions' Zech McPhearson and was recovered by Marquel Dismuke, setting up Drew Brown's 28-yard field goal.
Heading into the game against Nebraska, tight end Mike Gesicki knew he was on the brink of breaking Penn State tight end records.

Claude Puel's Leicester side are on a six-game unbeaten run across all competitions and are 12th in the league. But Guardiola has told his side they can perform even better ahead of Saturday's trip to Leicester City .
Nebraska then forced its only 3-and-out of the first half, and Penn State punter Blake Gillikin hit an 18-yard punt off the side of his foot, and Nebraska began its next drive at the Penn State 36-yard line.
Tanner Lee threw for 399 yards and three touchdowns for Nebraska (4-7, 3-5). Lee's completions of 17 yards to JD Spielman and 18 yards to Stanley Morgan Jr. set up a 1-yard TD run by Devine Ozigbo. As a result, already shorthanded without Carr or Reaves, the Nittany Lions saw their lead slowly shrink to just five at the half.
The Lions' 42 points at the break was their highest in a first half since they put up 56 at IL in 2005.
Mikale Wilbon scored on a 24-yard run and De'Mornay Pierson-El hauled in a 22-yard score during the third quarter.
NOTES: Penn State RB Saquon Barkley and QB Trace McSorley became the first Lions to score 10 rushing touchdowns apiece since Daryll Clark and Evan Royster did so in 2008.
Penn State countered with two touchdowns on its next two possessions, but again, the Huskers showed some resolve when they drove 75 yards in seven plays for their third touchdown of the half, an eight-yard pass from Lee to Morgan, making the score 56-31.
