The first quarter was a disaster for Nebraska. They turned the ball over three times; once on a fumbled option pitch, another an interception by Tommy Armstrong Jr, and then a muffed put by Jordan Westerkamp. Late in the half, Armstrong committed another turnover while scrambling. Four turnovers in the first half - not a good way to win a game for the Huskers.
As a result, Michigan State has had scoring drives of 22, 74, 8, and 12 yards, and leads 20-7 at half.
Nebraska has made some plays on offense, but has only one sustained drive (if five plays is sustained) which resulted in a touchdown.
At half, Michigan State has 170 total yards to Nebraska's 160. Ameer Abdullah has 13 carries for 86 yards, with a long of 29 yards. Jeremy Langford has 15 rushes for 68 yards and a touchdown. Armstrong is 4-for-7 for 70 yards, one touchdown and an interception. Connor Cook is 8-for-15 for 91 yards.
