MSU can clinch a share of the Legends division with a win at Nebraska, though it wouldn't clinch a Big Ten championship spot.

MSU has never defeated Nebraska, and it's the only Big Ten team Mark Dantonio hasn't defeated on the road. The Cornhuskers have been hanging by a thread, defeating Northwestern on a Hail Mary and then Michigan with a touchdown in the final minutes of an ugly game. Had they lost either of those games, and the division would be all but wrapped up for MSU. Instead, the Spartans will have to earn this one themselves.

Tommy Armstrong Jr. will be quarterback for Nebraska, with some Ron Kellogg III mixed in. Taylor Martinez, who tore apart MSU's defense last season, is out, and his career at Nebraska is likely over.
