    Mascot: Spartan
    Shirt color not to wear: Green/Toga


    Opposing player to watch:  Draymond Green

    Michigan State has a pretty deep squad but the one guy who is almost always on the floor is Green.  Considering he's one of the best players in the BiG it seems like a pretty good strategy.  Green is a triple threat...rebounding...passing...scoring..heck, the guy's last name is the school's color!  The Huskers will most likely key on Green all night leaving the rest of his teammates deciding who is going to have a career night.
    Opposing player to watch:  Keith Appling

    Noted as one of the best defenders in the BiG, Appling will be shadowing Bo Spencer most of the night.  Maybe this isn't the worst thing in the world as Bo can really be hit or miss and it might encourage someone else on the team to step up.  It could also mean that a team that has trouble scoring is once again really going to have trouble scoring.

    Win-Win Scenario 

    Guess what?  The Huskers aren't going to win.  Ever since starting out 0-2 at the hands of Duke and North Carolina, Michigan State has taken care of business including a recent beat down of a revitalized Indiana team.  The silver lining is that you can leave the Bob/your couch and not be bummed out for New Years because you already knew the Huskers were going to let you down.  So live it up today/tonight...we've have a big name in town and it's the holiday.  Don't even get your hopes up that the Spartans don't hit 3 ball very well...they don't need to.  Don't even worry that they're probably looking ahead to a Tuesday matchup against Wisconsin and more than likely are overlooking the Cornhuskers.  Just have a happy and healthy holiday (especially if you're an injured Husker).

    Prediction:  Spartans 74 - Huskers 60 with a 100% chance of unseasonably warm weather.
