Last year when the Huskers lost to Michigan State, Tommy Armstrong threw two big touchdown passes…a 32 yarder to Sam Burtch in the first quarter and a 38 yarder to Kenny Bell late in the third. Ameer Abdullah gained 123 yards on 32 carries. It was the first time a team was able to gain more than 300 yards of offense against that defense as NU racked up 392 yards. They also turned the ball over five times and that was the difference. Armstrong says the Spartans are no fluke team.
