Another Big Red Rally: Nebraska rallied from 10 points down in the final eight minutes to knock off Michigan State, 28-24, at Spartan Stadium.

Junior quarterback Taylor Martinez lofted a heavenly pass to the left side of the end zone for sophomore wide receiver Jamal Turner from five yards out with six ticks left on the clock. The touchdown capped NU’s third double-digit second-half comeback in four Big Ten victories.
