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.
The pass also completed a monster day for the junior quarterback against one of the nation’s stingiest defenses. The Spartans entered the contest allowing just 91.2 rushing yards per game through the first nine contests and only 267 yards of total offense and 15 points per game.
Martinez personally accounted for 205 rushing yards and two scores, while throwing for 160 yards and two more touchdownss. Sophomore I-back Ameer Abdullah accounted for another 110 yards on the ground, his fifth 100-yard rushing effort of the season, as Nebraska amassed 313 rushing yards.
