East Lansing, Mich.— After rushing for a career-high 253 yards and a touchdown against Eastern Michigan on Saturday, Le’Veon Bell has been awarded the Big Ten Player of the Week award for the second time this season.
Bell’s performance is the sixth-highest single-game total in school history, and after Saturday’s game, he became the 16th player in Michigan State history to reach 2,000 career rushing yards.
The junior running back ranks 15th all-time on the school’s touchdown list with 26, and with the way the Spartans have been playing this year, Bell will slowly climb his way to the top this season.
Bell is 17 touchdowns away from catching Michigan State great Lorenzo White for that touchdown record, and by the time he leaves MSU it’s very likely that he will be at the top of that list.

We have all witnessed the drops that Michigan State wide receivers have made over the past two games. They have been all over the field including two in the end zone by consensus number one WR Bennie Fowler. If Fowler makes that catch against Notre Dame it would have tied the game and possibly shifted the momentum towards the Spartans.
Michigan State followed up their ugly loss to Notre Dame with a questionable performance, but a win, against Eastern Michigan. It wasn’t a pretty, but a win’s a win. After the game, however, head coach Mark Dantonio wasn’t exactly in the talking mood. His postgame press conference was indicative of that and he certainly didn’t [...]
