Study Hall: Michigan State 41, Nebraska 28

Eric Francis

Advanced stats from Michigan State's 41-28 win over Nebraska on Saturday.

Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

You got away with one, State. Most opponents aren't going to fumble six times, losing four and handing you three short-field scores.
