Can the Nebraska Cornhuskers circle the wagans, with #7 Michigan State coming to Lincoln?

The Huskers are 3-6 for the first time, since
1958. Before many College Football fans time,
but they have three more games to play,
with #7 Michigan State coming to Lincoln.
Lincoln, NE -- The Nebraska football team practiced on Tom Osborne Field in Memorial Stadium for just under 90 minutes in sweats Monday night.

Defensive Coordinator Mark Banker spoke to the media following practice highlighting some key contributors that, despite the loss, stepped up during the Purdue game, including true freshman safety Aaron Williams.

Aaron Williams, nobody’s spoken about Aaron Williams,” Banker said. “Aaron Williams went in there last week as a true freshman, and I’ll tell you what, that young man showed up. He showed up in the pass game, he showed up in the run game."

"He got beat on a pass that they threw over the top. It was a good pass. It was 6-4 against 5-11, but he was there, he was in position, he was looking for the ball, trying to make a play on it and didn’t, but we’ll live with that.”

Banker did not overlook the fact that the Huskers face an undefeated #7 Michigan State (8-0, 4-0 B1G West) squad on Saturday led by senior quarterback Connor Cook.

Michigan State senior QB #18 Connor Cook is in his third season, as a starter.
I see a very experienced, confident, very efficient quarterback,” Banker said. “He is a good football player; best quarterback we’ve faced all year. There’s absolutely no doubt. [He’s] smooth, 17 touchdowns, two interceptions, so obviously he’s doing something right, but very, very poised.”

Nebraska (3-6, 1-4 B1G West) welcomes the Spartans to Memorial Stadium on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. The game will be televised on ESPN. The Iowa-Indiana game from Bloomington will kickoff at 2:30 p.m. on ESPN ahead of the nightcap in Lincoln.

On defense, Michigan State upfront is lead by senior DE #89 Shilique Calhoun
as the Spartans are coming off a bye week, after a 8-0 start in 2015.
