    Michigan State jumped out to a 14-3 lead on 2 long TD runs by #4 Edwin Baker. The first came from 51 yards where Edwin ran over the OLB Brandon Herron, on his way to paydirt. After a FG by Michigan, Edwin did it again as he took a handoff up the middle and and broke another 2 tackles on his way to a 66 yard TD run to give the Spartans the early lead. Michigan struggled all game long to stay consistent offensively as every time they got into the redzone of the Spartans they were forced to kick FG's! Brendan Gibbons kicked 4 FG's on the day, missing a 52 yarder that would have given the Wolverines their 1st lead had it not hit the cross bar and fell short!
    Michigan State took advantage, as they converted multiple 3rd downs on their way to another TD to make it 21-13! The Wolverine rushing attack had an overall good day but the big play had been limited. The Wolverines used 8 ball carriers to rush for a total of 277 yards but the big one didnt come until a tackle in the backfield was missed causing the option of Michigan to stall. The running backs of Michigan started to block for Robinson, who took it 69 yard to bring it to within 21-19. Knowing they need to tie the game up Michigan's Coach Hokie made a big decision and went for 2pts! The Wolverines tied it up on a 3 yard double lead play by Vincent Smith with 1:12 left in the 3rd Quarter. The 4th Quarter saw both teams got back and forth and exchange long FG's to make it 24-24. However, the Wolverines had the ball last and called a timeout with 2 seconds left and Gibbons kicked the game winning FG as time expired!
