Michigan State Spartans
Boise State Broncos
EAST LANSING, Mich. Consider this: Michigan State junior quarterback Andrew Maxwell had not taken a snap as a starting quarterback in nearly four years until Friday nights 17-13 win over Boise State. Thats a long time to be wearing a baseball cap and headphones on the sideline during games.
So, how did he grade out as the first-time leader of a college offense?
I would give him a C on the report card.
Maxwells statistics were not impressive. He completed 22 of 38 passes for 248 yards with no touchdowns and three costly interceptions. But only one of those pickoffs was really his fault.
The first interception by Broncos cornerback Jamar Taylor, which set up a field goal, inexplicably went right through the hands of starting receiver Tony Lippett.
Boise State end Sam Ukwuachu was in Maxwells face when he fired a pass tipped by tailback Larry Caper into the hands of safety Jeremy Ioane, who tied the score at 10-10 with a 43-yard touchdown return.

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.
East Lansing, Mich— Many college football enthusiasts tuned in to ESPN today, as the #13 Michigan State Spartans hosted the #24 Boise State Broncos, and watched MSU junior running back Le’Veon Bell put on a Heisman worthy performance.

Michigan State controlled the line of scrimmage in the opening minutes and again at the end.
In between, the Spartans made enough mistakes that they needed a fourth-quarter rally to overcome an inexperienced Boise State team.
Le'Veon Bell was too much for the 24th-ranked Broncos, outgaining the entire Boise State team and scoring both Michigan State touchdowns. After taking...
Michigan State safety RJ Williamson may not have posted a tackle in his Spartans debut, but he was part of one of the biggest plays on the night. Spartan Digest spoke with Williamson following the game.

Boise State doesn’t rebuild. The Broncos just reload.
So maybe that’s a stretch. Still, the departures of 17 starters from the Boise State juggernaut this season were supposed to bring college football’s consummate cinderella back to earth. Boise lost to Michigan State Friday night, but it sure didn’t look like the Broncos have any intention of falling back to the pack...
