Can't get a grip: Huskers' title hopes are dashed by error-filled day
Among Tommy Armstrong's turnovers, this was a momentum-changer. The Nebraska quarterback, No. 4, looks for a fumbled ball on a snap with 5:35 remaining in the third quarter. Michigan State recovered the ball and went on to Jeremy Langford's 3-yard touchdown run, building a 27-14 lead. “Guys played hard tonight,” Husker receiver Kenny Bell said. “We just didn't play smart.”

LINCOLN — Five — not alive.
Nebraska crossed itself off the Big Ten football title list with a 41-28 loss to Michigan State. The Huskers lost four fumbles and threw an interception. The slower, safer Spartans turned those five miscues into 24 points. They never trailed and shrugged off the sweaty moments by falling on unexpected pigskin treats.
