3 takeaways from upset win over MI

Michigan State wide receiver Felton Davis III runs in for a touchdown in the first quarter of their Big Ten football game against Iowa at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing on Saturday

Michigan State converted the good field position into its first points of the game. Head coach Jeff Brohm continued his two-quarterback system, but redshirt sophomore Elijah Sindelar saw most of the time, attempting 26 passes, compared to redshirt junior David Blough's 10. "Any time you play a rivalry game, you really want to win". MSU high tailed their way back to East Lansing last night with a 14-10 win knowing that they came into the Big House and stole a game from a better team. "I think they are sort of similar in a lot of ways".

Bachie played a big role again, a week after he recovered a fumble in the win over Iowa.

But after a 14-10 win in which the Spartans ran for 158 yards - 56 more than MI did - that's exactly what they could claim.

The Spartans earned a terrific road win over rival No. 7 MI in a rain-drenched 14-10 slugfest in front of a stunned crowd at the Big House.

All of that and the quarterback question aside, Michigan's defense was strong, giving up more yards than in previous games, but effectively shutting MSU down in the second half. "We just overcame all that and stuck to the plan".

Mike Hart's words echo in the Michigan State locker room before every game against Michigan - literally.

MI got the ball back with 34 seconds left, and the MSU defense held on despite a almost costly late hit by Chris Frey.

"We knew they were going to take shots regardless of the weather and everything like that", Dowell said. Obviously we needed to bounce back, and we made a commitment to do that as a football team and a program way back in the spring.

"We're normally a pretty good second-half defense", Hurst said. "My hats off to the guys on this defense". Prior to kickoff, the team also played a video that featured student athelets and athletic director Warde Manuel as they asked fans and supporters to be mindful of the opinions of the athletes who take to the field and to be aware of and willing to speak on social injustices.

Texas also faced a 10-point deficit at 17-7 but roared back to close the second half with two straight touchdown drives, the last of which closed on a 1-yard Porter run with 16 seconds left before the half to give the Longhorns a 21-17 lead at the break.

"We've done it eight times", Dantonio said. "There's gonna be adversity and we have to fight through it".

"Just kind of sure the game was over that point, but it wasn't", Wolverines defensive tackle senior Maurice Hurst recalled.

Michigan State had four sacks of Michigan quarterback John O'Korn, but MSU's elusive Brian Lewerke faced pressure but was never sacked by a defense that entered the game leading the country in sacks. One also has to assume that MI will get a big energy boost from the home crowd and will use it to outlast their in-state rival. Freshman running back Jonathan Taylor continued his incredible season, rushing for 249 yards and two touchdowns.

"LJ was nicked up", Dantonio said. When it came to heartbreak, however, it may have been harder to bounce back from Karan Higdon's holding penalty that wiped out a 55 yard pass and a great catch by Kekoa Crawford.
