LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Michigan State has defeated every Big Ten opponent it's faced since 2011 except Nebraska. The Spartans, in fact, have never beaten the Cornhuskers.
Saturday's game at Memorial Stadium marks the eighth Michigan State-Nebraska meeting, and the stakes have never been higher for the 14th-ranked Spartans.
If they win, they are all but assured of claiming the Legends Division. If they lose, Nebraska gains the inside track to the Big Ten championship game.
Michigan State (8-1) is 5-0 in Big Ten play for the first time in coach Mark Dantonio's seven seasons. The Huskers (7-2, 4-1) have put themselves in contention to win the division despite the loss of quarterback Taylor Martinez, an injury-riddled offensive line and a road loss to Minnesota.
