Going into Saturday night’s game against the Michigan State Spartans, many believed that the Nebraska Cornhuskers were dead in the water and were ready to give up on head coach Mike Riley. However, the team came out and pulled off a huge win over the then-undefeated Spartans on a last-second touchdown.
Despite the play being called controversial, the Cornhuskers celebrated the big win in style. The team shared video of them celebrating on the field and in the locker room and it is the epitome of what it means to play college football.
The win will certainly give the Cornhuskers confidence for the rest of the season. They are 4-6 and need to win out if they want to make a bowl game.
Their next game is against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights is certainly winnable, but they close the season with the undefeated Iowa Hawkeyes on November 27. That is going to be a tough test for them.
