East Lansing, Mich. • Taylor Martinez threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jamal Turner with 6 seconds left to lift No. 21 Nebraska to a 28-24 win over Michigan State on Saturday night that kept the Cornhuskers tied with Michigan atop the Big Ten Legends Division.
The Cornhuskers scored two touchdowns in the final 7 minutes, 2 seconds to erase a 24-14 deficit. The winning score was set up by a pass interference call in the end zone on Michigan State's Darqueze Dennard, which gave Nebraska the ball at the 5 when the Cornhuskers otherwise would have had to attempt a tying field goal.
Le'Veon Bell ran for 188 yards and two touchdowns for Michigan State.
Martinez rushed for 205 yards and two touchdowns, becoming Nebraska's career leader in total offense.
