Nebraska Vs. Michigan State Halftime Score: Huskers D Wins The First

Two one-loss Big Ten teams with a top-10 national ranking (so many numbers) on the line, and it's a 10-3 halftime lead for the Nebraska Cornhuskers over the Michigan St. Spartans. The Huskers nearly shut out Kirk Cousins and his many cousins for the entire half, holding in the red zone in the final minutes to force a field goal try.

Daimion Stafford nearly grabbed what could've been a 90-yard pick six during that final possession, but dropped it. Cousins already has thrown one interception on the day.

If you're a fan of passing, you should seek entertainment elsewhere. Taylor Martinez has yet to complete a pass, while Cousins has gone four-of-15. Our top producer is Nebraska's Rex Burkhead, who's averaging 2.9 yards per carry.
