Michigan State Made Big Pass Plays, Huskers Didn’t on Saturday

In Nebraska’s 20-17 loss at Michigan State Saturday, the Spartans offense had four pass plays go for 25 yards or more and all of them led to or resulted in scores. 

Meanwhile, Heinrich Haarberg managed just 129 yards on 12-of-28 passing and was intercepted twice.  Coach Matt Rhule said the Huskers had some big plays dialed up to beat Michigan State’s defense, but couldn’t connect. 

“You see sometimes when we have rhythm,  when we have timing, we were in a little bit of tempo at the end, we made some plays,” Rhule said.  “But, just certainly not good enough in the passing game…at all.”  

Nebraska is now 5-4 overall and 3-3 in the Big Ten.  The Huskers will host Maryland this Saturday with kickoff at Memorial Stadium set for 11 a.m.
