Nebraska receiver Kenny Bell says if the 13th-ranked Cornhuskers don't beat No. 9 Michigan State on Saturday, Big Red fans might as well start checking into travel plans for the Outback Bowl.
With a win, the Huskers (6-1, 2-1 Big Ten) move into a tie with the Spartans (6-1, 3-0) for the Legends Division lead and gain the inside track for the Big Ten title game. With a loss, the Huskers fall two games behind, and Michigan State would own the tie-breaker.
Bell says he can't see Michigan State losing after this week. Three of the Spartans' last four opponents are winless in the Big Ten.
