College Football Week 10: #21 Nebraska At Michigan State
|With the win against Michigan last week, Bo Pelini’s team is in the driver’s seat to reach the Big Ten championship. Nebraska can’t afford a slip-up in East Lansing.||Coaching||Two games back in the Legends Division, Michigan State is more likely to play spoiler going forward than anything else. Mark Dantonio and the Spartans upset Wisconsin last week and will continue to face teams with Big Ten titles hopes.|
|Taylor Martinez tweaked his ankle last week but Nebraska kept plugging away against Michigan’s stout defense and eventually put some points on the board. When healthy and clicking, this is a dangerous offense.||Offense||No matter how you slice it, this offense has been bad. Michigan State needed overtime to get 16 points last week.|
|Though Denard Robinson missed the second half last week, Nebraska’s strong defensive performance was still commendable. Michigan State shouldn’t pose much of a threat, so expect another solid game.||Defense||Michigan State is 5-4, as opposed to, say, 3-6, because its defense is one of the best in the country.|
|Nebraska’s special teams have been bad; the Cornhuskers are 106th in Football Outsiders’ efficiency rankings.||Special Teams||Only three schools have attempted more field goals than the Spartans, which have made 16 of 22.|
