    Michigan State Ends Bowl Drought

    Spartans dominate #6 Ole Miss


    Michigan State 35

    Ole Miss 10

    The Spartans ended a 10 year Bowl Victory drought today in the Capitol One Bowl. The offense fired on all cylinders as everyone played excellent. The defense played great as well, only allowing one touchdown. Larry Caper and Edwin Baker both went over 100 yards rushing today while Kirk Cousins hit open receivers all day and did not throw an interception. The score would have been 21-3 at halftime but Baker fumbled the ball on the yard line, the only turnover of the game. Ole Miss would score only once on their long TD run make the game 14-10 and the Spartans decided not to let this one slip out of their hands and went into shut down mode. The Rebels QB only completed 10 passes for no TDs. East Lansing will be rockin' tonight.

    Michigan State finishes a very successful season 9-4 (6-2). A few key players will be leaving so let's pray for an equally good season in 2012.

    Coach Masler commented after the game: "I am ecstatic to have brought Michigan State to their first bowl victory since 2001. Ole Miss is a very good opponent, they went 10-2 in the regular season but we were just better today. We aimed to slow that SEC speed and slow it we did. See you next season."
