Nebraska vs. Michigan State: Recap, Analysis and Results

Nebraska 28, Michigan State 24 - Final

A pass interference penalty set up the games first score, a Le'Veon Bell 11-yard run. Nebraska was able to respond on its next drive tying the score at 7-7. Andrew Maxwell connected with Tony Lippett on a 46-yard play action TD pass in the second quarter to pull the Spartans back in front. Martinez then responded with a spectacular 73-yard touchdown run making it 14-14.

Michigan State got the ball to start the third, and capitalized on the possession by scoring a field goal to take a 3-point lead. Michigan State pushed their lead to 10 on a 1-yard touchdown run by Le'Veon Bell in the opening minutes of the 4th quarter. Michigan State had actually been stopped on third-and-goal, which would have set up a field goal, before a controversial personal foul call on Daimion Stafford extended the drive.  Nebraska pulled within a field-goal after a 35-yard Taylor Martinez run.

The waning seconds of the game saw Nebraska drive close the the length of field (with the help of a controversial pass interference call) and win the game off a Jamal Turner TD reception.
