Two day's after Saturday's win over Nebraska, it's a little easier to feel good about the result without being disappointed in the process. The majority of the second half was a mess, and allowing the Huskers back in the game like that was inexcusable. That being said, Nebraska was forced to mount a miraculous comeback because the Spartans completely dominated for the first 30-plus minutes and showed why they're the favorites in the Big Ten. So while it's unfortunate that score won't indicate an MSU blowout at the end of the season, the good guys got the job done and are sure to learn from a near disaster. Now bring on Purdue.
