The Michigan State Spartans hosted the Nebraska Cornhuskers under the lights in a striped-out Spartan Stadium, and in a very physical contest, the Spartans were able to outlast the Cornhuskers in overtime by a final score of 23-20.
The first half was a low-scoring affair. Michigan State received the ball first, but four plays later quarterback Payton Thorne threw his first interception of the season on a throw downfield intended for Jalen Nailor. Nebraska’s Marquel Dismuke was able to get the turnover for the Cornhuskers.
On Nebraska’s first play, quarterback Adrian Martinez was sacked by Michigan State’s Drew Beesley and Jacub Panasiuk.
