LINCOLN, neb. – Everything wanted Michigan State supporters was.

Rocky Lombardi was first gotten. He knew Monday that he would replace Brian Lewerke, who had a wounded shoulder.

At the moment, the crime moved to the ball and ate the clock. Spartans' first driver, who came to an end in a visit, could probably be considered successful.

It was a deep exhale. Continued with ongoing continuing and sustained effort.

By half time, it was obvious: this was not just about who had quarterback play.

About the third season, it became clear: His first team won 7 points.

At a quarter, it became painful: for tenants to let pass in the wind when the snow started; falling, although the quarterback refused to recognize the damage.

And with the last horn, it became a reality: MSU is still a team to go again.

The biggest protection that can stop anyone in the country. And crime that is one of the worst in college football.

Nebraska (4-7, 3-5 Big Ten) walked three field goals in the last 11 minutes, 7 seconds when a Spartian crime was broadcast to sleep in winter in a 9-6 Saturday defeat at the Memorial Park.

"It's hard," said Lombardi, who finished 15-for-41 for 146 yards with interaction and expensive volatile. "It's hard to put a finger on what happened exactly … At the end of the day, you have only got a way to do it. It's so simple."

MSU (6-5, 4-4) did not visit for the second game just and did not score one of them in the last 131 minutes of football.

There were football splitting in the Spartans, with seven penalties for 87 yards. Five of them were for 15 yards, by a man with Matt Doston to cost them a visit to a garden; left in the second quarter and another with Shakur Brown to help to # 39; guide Huskers's first score in the fourth time.

"I'm saying to our players – for what else do you say sometimes – the difference between winning and losses is so small, You can cut it with a knife at times. I mean, it's so small, "said MSU coach, Mark Dantonio. "That's also the difference between happiness and misery, and there's plenty of it to go around."

The Spartans turned the ball over the depths of their own areas again, when Lombardi caught him and attacked the independent safety of Nebraska Antonio Reed. That ran to the range of the Barret Pickering game range with 8:07 for play.

Subsequently, a three-piece property, with a 1-yard run by La. Darius Jefferson and two Lombardi co-operation. One of them had Dotson's second fall on the game, after the removal of another man in the back of the border on the final MSU tournament in the fourth quarter.

"I felt I had to identify anything in the football game, you have to look at the passes," said Dantonio. "I thought Lombardi was playing well. You have to make decisions about what you run – you can not run it all."

Nebraska passed over 47 after William Przystup's pound. Adrian Martinez, a new rebellion, hit by Spartach defended almost every night, rented just 23 yards, almost enough to pick out 47-yarder pickers wind on his back to take the Huskers head.

Dantonio decided to suspend a running game that created 143 yards on the ground and let Lombardi leave it out.

After controlling Connor Heyward for 34 gardens to recover to the boundaries of Nebraska, Looking for two falls – with Cody White and Matt Sokol – the installation of the driver at Huskers 41. The girl had a great player to White, Dantonio.

Lombardi, trying to defend his path, said, "I have never seen any split."

Dantonio decided to defend a punt and defender a game, how the MSU was in a position to disturb State Penn. The Spartans gave a fast, three-way trip, using two timeouts, and their ball back at their 38 with 3:52 left. He gave Lombardy, who influenced Purdue in the same start, allowed him to be a hero.

He moved 33 yards, to Nebraska 29, with the same running player that drew QB 8-yard to make the third part down the middle of the park. The USS also assisted with a license interference penalty.

Thirdly, Lombard threw Laress Nelson into an outer pattern. Another solution.

On a quarter down, he threaded a pass to Sokol down the right slope. It was broken up.

Nebraska passed over and laughed. Just as the Ohio State did a week earlier when an U.S. crime was released.

"I think if there is a degree of difficulty, it will come from the coach too," said Dantonio. "So, yes, I'm unhappy about points. But the game career was right. We do not have to act. There is a death bailiff involved here.

"Now, some of the weather, some of it (Nebraska) playing and playing pictures on a member. Some of us. You could be able to negotiate and look at and say, "Good, what's a Factor here? "But you're getting competitions."

The Spartans went into this season with hopes of struggling for the Big Ten title. Instead, they have come into disorder among the injuries and inconsistencies of crime.

Dantonio would not return to the next Saturday in the home against Rutgers (4 p.m./Fox), saying he would Lewerke can be played against Nebraska as well as a victim of Lombardy.

One regular stay-season game, a high day of MSU – has the opportunity to mark the positions of the veterans but another trip to the Spanish and Spanish young players. Determining the problems of crime. Where Dantonio chooses to join at quarterback, things will be bigger than going to; keep the work done.

And find a rhythm from one, determine who starts with a bowl game, if Lewerke is healthy enough to play. As good from a leadership perspective as it is about finding more fruit.

"We do not have the interest to put them out on the right footnote at Spartan Stadium. We have won the winners," said the young child, Joe Bachie. "Rutgers will come in to go and this should be a game that we should win. We said all year round, but we can not win some of these games.

"We're just going to work again on Monday."
