The Spartans welcome the Huskers to East Lansing tonight.

NCAA Basketball: Michigan State at Northwestern David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

The No. 10 Michigan State Spartans (12-2, 3-0) return home to the Breslin Center tonight to take on a Big Ten Conference foe, the Nebraska Cornhuskers (6-8, 0-3). Nebraska is coming off an overtime loss to Ohio State on Sunday night in Lincoln, while the Spartans are back home after a comeback win in Evanston on Sunday afternoon.

According to Nebraska head coach Fred Hoiberg, the Huskers are looking to focus on abandoning the offensive glass and hustling back on defense to shut down the Spartans in transition. Nebraska hasn’t won in East Lansing, or the series against Michigan State, since 2016, though.

  • Today’s game marks the 30th meeting all-time between the two programs.
