Hi all. This will be a shorter preview due to time constraints, but it’s better than nothing.
Today, MSU takes on Nebraska at Spartan Stadium at 3:30 PM ET on ABC/ESPN2. It’s a huge matchup, as Nebraska hasn’t lost to MSU (they’re 6-0 all time), and this might be the nail in the coffin for all other Legends Division teams if Nebraska wins.
Keys to the game for the Spartans:
Mix up the play-calling: The reason the Spartans beat Wisconsin last week was because of the great play-calling by the offense in their last drive and in OT. If it wasn’t for that, they would’ve notched another loss. If they can start of the game with calls like this, it’ll be a long day for the red and white guys.
Stop Taylor Martinez: Like a lot of the offenses MSU has played this year, the offense is anchored by one guy. Taylor Martinez, who is improved in all aspects of his game, can run and pass, and if the MSU defense can stop him, it’ll be rough for the Husker offense.
Convert on ALL scoring opportunities: To the Spartans: if you make it to the red zone, you must score. At least a field goal. With an offense like this, you can’t throw away opportunities.
Ok, sorry for the short preview but time is not on my side today. Go Green!
