The week ahead
No. 6 Michigan State at Nebraska
7 p.m. Saturday, TV TBD
•The Cornhuskers threw a huge scare into the Spartans last year, scoring 19 fourth-quarter points before falling 27-22 in East Lansing. This time, you have to wonder which Nebraska team will show up: the one that hammered the Gophers or the one that got hammered by Purdue.
No. 10 Iowa at Indiana
•Given the Hawkeyes' other remaining opponents — the Gophers, Purdue and Nebraska, the mercurial Hoosiers just might be Iowa's biggest roadblock to an unbeaten season.
