The Nebraska Cornhuskers will host the Michigan State Spartans at home this upcoming Saturday, November 16. This game holds a lot of potential for both teams as it will play a huge role in determining who will be in the lead for the Big Ten Legends Division.
Nebraska has held an impressive season so far, although a lot of the games have been much closer calls than fans, coaches, and players would like to admit. They will enter this game against Michigan with 7-2 overall with a 4-1 in the Big Ten Conference after beating out Michigan last week with a last minute touchdown that led to an overall score of 17-13.
While Nebraska has had an impressive season so far this year, Michigan State has had an even better one. They currently hold a record of 8-1 overall and have not lost a single one of their Big Ten conference games this year. This record also includes on impressive win over Michigan a few weeks ago. The only loss that Michigan State has been dealt this year was an early game against Notre Dame in September.
Nebraska will need to work extra hard this week if they want to stand a chance at beating the Spartans and making it to the Big Ten Championship. It is not enough to just hope that some lucky plays can happen and they will win out like with the last few games. Instead, they will need to play their A game during the whole matchup in order to not be taken out.
