2013 Rose Bowl: Nebraska, Michigan keep pace in Big Ten Legends Division

Gregory Shamus

The Cornhuskers scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter in East Lansing to beat Michigan State and remain atop the Legends Division in the Big Ten.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers came close to dropping a tough road contest on Saturday, but a pair of fourth quarter touchdowns erased a 10-point deficit and gave them a 28-24 win over the Michigan State Spartans. Nebraska (7-2, 4-1) remained in the top spot in the Big Ten Legends Division with the win.

The loss by the Spartans actually hurt their in-state rivals, the Michigan Wolverines. Michigan (6-3, 4-1) took care of business with a 35-13 win over the Minnesota Golden Gophers, and remain tied with the Cornhuskers atop the Legends Division. Though Nebraska owns the tiebreaker by virtue of their 23-9 win over the Wolverines on Oct. 27.

In the Leaders Division, the Wisconsin Badgers are nearly a lock to return to the Big Ten Championship Game, though the Badgers had a bye this week. Wisconsin (6-3, 3-2) holds a one-game lead in the loss column over the Indiana Hoosiers (4-5, 2-3), 24-21 winners on Saturday over the Iowa Hawkeyes. The Badgers and Hoosiers meet next Saturday, with the winner grabbing the inside track for the division.

The Big Ten Championship Game will be played on Saturday, Dec. 1 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The game is scheduled to kickoff at 5:17 p.m. PT, and will be televised by Fox.
