Taylor Martinez threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jamal Turner with :06 left, giving No. 21 Nebraska a 28-24 win at Michigan State Saturday evening.

The Cornhuskers (7-2, 4-1 Big Ten) 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 five.

Martinez rushed for 205 yards and two touchdowns, becoming Nebraska's career leader in total offense. Le'Veon Bell ran for 188 yards and two touchdowns for the Spartans (5-5, 2-4 Big Ten).

Two weeks ago, Nebraska staged a similar comeback to beat Northwestern 29-28.
