Huskers Fall to No. 14 Spartans: Nebraska was unable to overcome five turnovers, all in its own territory, which Michigan State converted into 24 points in the Spartans' 41-28 victory.
   Ameer Abdullah and the Husker rushing attacked pounded out 182 yards on 32 carries, including 123 yards from Abdullah. The Spartans entered the game ranked No. 1 nationally in rushing defense, allowing 43.4 yards per game, and hadn't allowed a team – let alone an individual – to top the 100-yard mark all season.
