Michigan State players turned to Twitter to express their frustration with the officiating after the team's 28-24 loss to Nebraska on Saturday.

Michigan State running back Le'Veon Bell, who had 36 rushes for 188 yards and two touchdowns in the game, credited the referees for winning the game on Saturday:

The Spartans were noticeably upset on the sideline when Darqueze Dennard was called for pass interference in the end zone on third down with Nebraska at the Michigan State 20-yard line with less than a minute left in the game.

Nebraska wide receiver Kenny Bell and Dennard linked arms in the end zone and made a play for the ball, but the referees called interference on Dennard. The penalty setup 1st-and-goal at the Michigan State 5-yard line and Nebraska was able to get into the end zone to go ahead 28-24.
