Michigan State would jump out to an early 10-3 lead in the first quarter, only to see Boise State score 10 unanswered points in the second quarter to go into the half with a 13-10 lead.The score would remain tied into the fourth quarter. That is when Bell would shift it into overdrive.With less than nine minutes left in regulation and the Spartans on the Broncos side of the field, Bell would drill a blitzing Boise State linebacker with a nifty block, allo...

Michigan St is having a rough night against Boise St, well, except for Le’Veon Bell. The Spartan running back announced himself to the nation with this amazing display of athleticism early in the their game on Friday night. Looks like he learned good technique from watching Summer Olympics.

Spartans RB LeVeon Bell No Longer Heisman Dark HorseMichigan State’s performance last night was far from pretty. Inexcusable turnovers, dropped balls, and poor coverage were only a few things that went wrong for the Spartans last night in what was a thrilling season opener against Boise State.

1. Le’Veon Bell is a Heisman Trophy Candidate
I realize that we have not even reached Saturday yet, but I am already prepared to predict that no player in college football will improve his NFL stock and Heisman Trophy potential more than Michigan State running back Le’Veon Bell. Bell’s final rushing stat...
