Bachie also had an interception and forced a fumble for the Spartans (4-1, 2-0 Big Ten).

In addition to the threats, a number of fans tell us that in light of Las Vegas's recent event, they shouldn't be scared to go to big events.

Bachie forced a Ty Isaac fumble and Frey recovered at the MI 46.

The defenses stood tall on both sides as the teams traded punts on their next four possessions before MI quarterback John O'Korn (16-for-35, 198 yards 3 interceptions) began a MI march at their own 37 with 1:20 left in the half. The game and momentum then changed on a Ty Isaac fumble. After exchanging punts, MSU went on a 9 play, 83 yard drive making the MI defense look confused.

The Wolverines opened with a 16-play, 64-yard drive that took almost 7 minutes off the clock, but they had to settle for a field goal and a 3-0 lead.

Saturday's game was the first time that MI took to the field since President Donald Trump's controversial remarks in which he crudely criticized players in the NFL who kneel during the national anthem.

MSU's special teams had major issues early in the third quarter to cost the Spartans field position, first Andre Welch's east-and-west kickoff return that included a hold to start them at their own 7 to begin the second half.

Madre London to put the Spartans up 14-3 midway through the second quarter.

Penn State 31, Northwestern 7: Trace McSorley threw for 245 yards and a touchdown, Saquon Barkley ran for two scores in the second half, and Penn State beat Northwestern 31-7 on Saturday.

While the loss to the Spartans was the first of the season for the now 4-1 Wolverines, they've been offensively-challenged all season, a notion not helped by some dubious play-calling Saturday. John O'Korn's last-second heave was knocked down in the end zone, sparking MSU's celebration.


With the loss, Michigan will undoubtably drop in the top-25, while Michigan State could crack the top-25. That is, unless an offense that's struggled all season can get in sync and a quarterback who's likely to play for the rest of the season can show some improvement and make the most of an unexpected opportunity. "I'm not going to say anything like Hart said, but it's definitely nice to get the win". Lewerke threw for only 94 yards, but he had no interceptions and rushed for 61 yards and a TD.

Nate Stanley threw for 247 yards and three touchdowns and Iowa rolled past IL 45-16 on Saturday, snapping a two-game losing streak.

FORT WORTH, Texas - Kenny Hill avoided a defender in the backfield and lunged forward through two more for a 3-yard touchdown run with 2:53 left and TCU remained the Big 12's only undefeated team. Lewerke is also the leading rusher for the Spartans and is average 6.5 yards per carry. MI receiver Grant Perry led all receivers with five catches and 61 yards receiving.

There were a few close calls for Lewerke, including late in the fourth quarter as Michigan State was attempting to ice the game. He was asked about that record against rivals, and chose not to address it.

Speight won the starting job in fall camp.

"It's definitely talked about and played before the game", said MSU quarterback Brian Lewerke.

"We're becoming a good team", he said. "I think Coach D uses it very well for motivation for us, so we definitely don't like that comment". That was the case on Saturday night as Michigan State football marched into Ann Arbor and came away with a huge win over the Wolverines.

About 20 MI players formed a circle and locked their arms together during the national anthem. It features an offense, at present, that will keep opponents in nearly every game.

"It was different", O'Korn said. "It was a torrential downpour out there, but both teams have to deal with it". He was on the sideline in uniform, but didn't have his helmet on.
