Nebraska overcame what appeared to be a fatal interception to cut Michigan State’s lead to 3 with 7:02 to play.
Darqueze Dennard intercepted a Taylor Martinez pass and returned it 95 yards for a touchdown. However, Johnny Adams was called for a personal foul on the return, bringing it back to the Michigan State 10.
The Spartans were forced to punt and Nebraska went 58 yards in six plays, finishing with a 35-yard run by Martinez.
Martinez has 200 yards rushing for the Huskers.
