EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan State may need a little more time to get over this one.
The Spartans have an open date next weekend, and any positive vibes they had built at the start of November were dashed when Saturday's game against Nebraska slipped away in the final seconds. Michigan State seemed to have control on a few occasions in the fourth quarter, but ended up blowing a 10-point lead in a 28-24 loss.
Taylor Martinez threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jamal Turner with 6 seconds left to win it - and that was Nebraska's first lead of the game.
The Spartans (5-5, 2-4 Big Ten) still need another win to become bowl eligible after starting the season with hopes of a conference title.
