So, Nebraska plays at Michigan State on Saturday night. It's kind of a big game, if you haven't been paying attention. The Cornhuskers are the Big Ten's lone unbeaten, while the Spartans are the reigning Big Ten champs whose only loss came at Oregon.

Just how big is this game, though? Big enough that many think the winner will be thrust into the inaugural playoff discussion.

Before the two teams kick off the biggest game of Week 6, let's take a look back at some of the top highlights from the previous three meetings since Nebraska entered the Big Ten in 2011.
