The Huskers (6-1, 2-1 Big Ten) enter the game ranked No. 13 nationally, while Michigan State is 6-1 overall and 3-0 in the Big Ten following the Spartans’ dramatic win over No. 4 Wisconsin in East Lansing, Mich., on Saturday night. The game will be the first meeting between the Huskers and Michigan State since the 2003 Alamo Bowl, when a Bo Pelini-led Nebraska squad knocked off the Spartans, 17-3. That victory moved the Huskers to 5-0 all-time against Michigan State.
