The USS Nevada was the only battleship able to maneuver due to its position in the harbor the morning of the attack. It was struck by one torpedo in the first wave and, according to Wikipedia, struck by five bombs in the second. It was then ordered to move to the west side of Ford Island, where it was beached in order to avoid sinking in deeper water.
