EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Taylor Martinez threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jamal Turner with 6 seconds left, giving No. 21 Nebraska a 28-24 win over Michigan State on Saturday night that kept the Cornhuskers tied with Michigan atop the Big Ten Legends Division.

The Cornhuskers scored two touchdowns in the final 7:02 to erase a 24-14 deficit. The winning score was set up by a pass interference call in the end zone on Michigan State's Darqueze Dennard, which gave Nebraska the ball at the 5 when the Cornhuskers would have otherwise had to attempt a tying field goal.

Le'Veon Bell ran for 188 yards and two touchdowns for Michigan State.

Martinez rushed for 205 yards and two touchdowns, becoming Nebraska's career leader in total offense.
