    Spartans win Big Ten outright, 51-23
    Finish undefeated in conference


    [​IMG]

    For the third time in the last 5 years, Michigan State brings the Big Ten crown back to East Lansing. After watching the dogfight between Iowa and Penn State, Coach Masler was very apprehensive about this game. With the conference title on the line between three schools, Michigan State had no choice but to win​

    The first quarter opened up with Michigan State picking off the very first pass Penn State QB Campbell threw. A couple of plays later Williams punched it in, making it 7-0. After a good defensive stance, MSU looked to go up 14-0 but returnman Allen muffed the punt and Penn State would recover. This recovery revitalized the Nittany Lions as they connected on a short pass but failed the PAT, 7-6.​

    Into the second we saw Allen connect with Evans for a 14 yard TD pass, lifting MSU 14-6. Two HUGE defensive plays later that featured two different linebackers pick sixing Campebll and Sparty is up big time over Penn State, 28-6. Penn State made a great effort to get a TD before halftime but fizzled out and had to settle for 3 points, 28-9.​

    Halftime​

    Michigan State and Penn State both played great defense in the third quarter as neither team was able to produce any points. But MSU was still in the drivers seat by the time the 3rd was over.​

    All hell broke loose in the 4th quarter as Penn State found themselves at their 1 yard line, down 28-9. Campbell called a shotgun handoff that FR MLB Silva would read perfectly and stop the HB in his tracks to record a safety, 30-9. The Lions would now kick to Allen, who had already muffed one, but this time he would redeem himself. Allen weaved in and out of defenders to take the punt 81 yards to the house, 37-9. Penn State would finally find some offense as they cut the deficit to 37-16. The two teams would trade TD's and the score would be 44-23. Michigan State would not allow another point from the home team and Williams fell into the endzone for his 2nd TD of the day, making the final score 51-23.​

    Michigan State once again held another team under 100 yards rushing, this time only allowing 19 yards on 17 carries. The defense was a MAJOR factor today by forcing 4 turnovers as well. Masler expressed alot of gratitude that they showed up to play today.​

    The Michigan State bench erupted when the clock hit 00:00 and the few faithful fans stormed the field on this cold November day. Coach Masler was hoisted upon the players shoulders as they carried him off the field, signing the team fight song. This will mark Coach Masler's 3rd Big Ten Title in 5 years and his 3rd out of all 7. The season isn't over yet though as MSU still has to face Boise State in their home closer.​
