Michigan State is a formidable foe that the Huskers should have been preparing for all week. It was not going to be an easy game where they could get a couple of easy breaks and still end up victors in the game
That is not how football is supposed to go. It is supposed to be a matchup against two teams that give their all throughout the whole game and do not rely on lucky chances. The Huskers have begun to rely on these chances much too often in their games and it began to hurt them at the game against Michigan State on Saturday. The ended up losing 41-28 against the Spartans.
Many fans may be asking what went wrong with the Huskers during the game. First off were all the fumbles that occurred. Westerkamp fumbled the ball just a few plays away from the Michigan State in zone, making it easy for them to score another touchdown. Players should be trained how to catch a ball and then take a knee rather than risking a fumble like this one.
Westerkamp is not the only one to blame. There were other fumbles that occurred. In addition, Huskers were forced to start out on their 1 yard line after a return kick from the Spartans, making it almost impossible to get anywhere.
The Husker offense and defense obviously need some more work as neither was able to get the ball to go anywhere. This late in the season should not be seeing so many mistakes. Hopefully the Huskers can work out their kinks and finish out the season strong.
