Backup QB leads Michigan State

It was a fitting end to an odd game with little sustained offense. The Beaver Stadium crowd fell silent as athletic trainers attended to the senior. Besides the fine, the MSU team was reprimanded, as was head coach Mark Dantonio for for failing to take action to "mitigate a foreseeable conflict from occurring".

Penn State and MI will kick off at 3:45 p.m. ET on ABC.

Blough would throw 29-43 with three interceptions during the game for 277 yards. The MSU defense made up for the lapse by forcing a Purdue three and out and on the following drive the Spartans extended their lead to 16-6 on a 34-yard field goal.

Michigan State: The Spartans were coming off an emotional loss to rival Michigan, and their offense had its ups and downs with the backup quarterback in the game.

Geno Stone intercepted McSorley's pass and returned it 24 yards for a touchdown to make it 27-24 with 10 minutes left in the fourth. Zach Gentry, Donovan Peoples-Jones, and Nico Collins have demonstrated the ability to put a defense on its heels; a quick strike could cause the Nittany Lion defense to flounder early on. But Stanley's next throw was a quick pass toward star tight end Noah Fant, who was not looking.

The Big Ten fined Michigan State, saying it violated the conference's sportsmanship policy when the team walked across the field with linked arms and initiated contact with Michigan players during pregame warmups. With Brian Lewerke out with a shoulder injury, Lombardi guided the offense, and the redshirt freshman attempted 46 passes.

Coghlin had made a school-record 18 consecutive field goals until he had a kick blocked in the third quarter. He recorded 11 catches, but for only 74 receiving yards and no touchdowns.

In the second quarter Purdue was able to tie the game 6-6 with a 35-yard field goal but apart from that, the Michigan State defense controlled the Boilermaker offense.

Michigan State has won eight straight games in this series.

Purdue: The Boilermakers were shut down for much of the first three quarters, but they certainly had their chances late. The loss to Notre Dame is now seen as a pretty "good" loss, and impressive performances against Wisconsin and Michigan State reflect the continuing dominance of the Wolverine's defense and the emerging confidence of its quarterback.

Junior linebacker Tyriq Thompson laid a big hit on Purdue receiver and forced an interception on the same play to give the ball to the Spartans, but Thompson was called for unsportsmanlike conduct after the play. Purdue was held to less than 400 yards of totall offense and only scored 13 points.

Nebraska 45, Bethune-Cookman 9: Adrian Martinez passed for 213 yards and two touchdowns, Devine Ozigbo ran for 110 and another score, and Nebraska prepped for next week's trip to Ohio State with a win over Bethune-Cookman in Lincoln, Neb.
