Everything you want to know as the Spartans roll into Nebraska to play the Cornhuskers.

Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

Nebraska....... The program that was formerly one of the best in the world of college football, but has taken a dive downwards in recent years.

2015 hasn't been any different.

The Cornhuskers were expected to have a down year, but not this bad.

They've been up and down throughout the year, winning against Minnesota, Southern Miss, and South Alabama. But their most recent game against Purdue left Nebraska fans shaking their heads when the Huskers gave up 55 points in a disastrous loss.

In fact, this is the first season that the Huskers have lost six times before November.

And now they have to face a Michigan State team that has been pretty damn good this year, including a huge win at Michigan, and another against Oregon.

It was a close call for the Spartans against Rutgers and Purdue, but they managed to get the win in both of those games, and now head into Lincoln, Nebraska undefeated 8 games into the season.

The Huskers continue to be plagued by injuries with QB Tommy Armstrong Jr. who might be hampered after being out last game, along with several other offensive playmakers. Nebraska has started 20 different players both on offense and defense mostly due to injury.

Michigan State is 8-0 on the season, and also have a perfect 4-0 record in Big Ten action. The Spartans have an explosive offense, averaging 413.8 yards per game.

Nebraska is 5-3-1 in the previous nine games.

With Nebraska looking to bounce back from that awful loss to Purdue and Michigan State knowing they have big games at the end of the season against Ohio State and Penn State and can't afford to overlook this game against Nebraska, it should be a good game tonight.
