The Nebraska Cornhuskers and Michigan State Spartans face off on Saturday in a Week 4 college football showdown at Spartan Stadium. The last time these two teams faced off was in 2018 and Nebraska won 9-6. 

Nebraska sits with a 2-2 record overall but it’s clear this team is improving. Two games ago, Nebraska beat Buffalo 28-3 and in the last game, they were competitive against Oklahoma before losing 23-16. Oklahoma is a high-powered offense so the defense only giving up 23 points was a huge win. The Cornhuskers are averaging 29.5 points while giving up 15.75 points. Under center for Nebraska is Adrian Martinez who has thrown for 1,017 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception. He has also rushed for 290 yards and four touchdowns. In this game, if Nebraska wants to win, Martinez needs to make the right plays and not have dumb turnovers. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Michigan State Spartans who have been impressive this year. The Spartans sit with a 3-0 record and in the last game against Miami, they won 38-17. Michigan State put up 21 points in the 4th quarter and that was the difference. Michigan State wasn’t talked about as an offensive team heading into the year, but they are averaging 39.3 points per game. The Spartans have also leaned on their defense giving up 17.33 points per game. Under center for Michigan State is Payton Thorne who has thrown for 726 yards, nine touchdowns, and zero interceptions.

Michigan State is the better team, but Nebraska kept the last game close because of their defense. In this game, the Cornhuskers offense is going to be good again, and that will keep them in this game. Back Nebraska to cover the spread.
