NCAA Basketball: Michigan State at Nebraska Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

The Michigan State Spartans are in Lincoln tonight to take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Both teams are tied with Penn State at the bottom of Big Ten standings with a 0-3 conference record. The loser will earn sole possession of last place until their next game as the Wisconsin-Penn State game tomorrow has been postponed.

The Spartans are 10-3 against Nebraska in Big Ten play, 18-9 overall, are riding a six game win-streak in the series, and are 7-6 on the road in the series overall. MSU has also not lost four conference games in a row since 1997 when then second year head coach Tom Izzo dropped five straight. The last time MSU lost four games in a row on the schedule was in 2001-02 when a non-conference loss to Stanford was followed by three straight Big Ten losses to open conference play. The Spartans certainly hope to avoid earning that particular distinction tonight.
