Spartans still have plenty to play for

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Being eliminated from Big Ten title contention doesn't mean Michigan State has nothing to play for. The Spartans (9-2, 6-1 Big Ten) travel to Penn State (6-5, 2-5) looking to secure a fourth 10-win season in the last five years. "We're a little bit of the forgotten ones right now," coach Mark Dantonio said Tuesday. "Got a very good football team, got a chance...

Michigan State quietly puts itself in position for New Years Six bowl game

The Michigan State Spartans have played two huge games on the national stage, taking on Oregon and Ohio State while both were top 15 teams. Unfortunately, the Spartans got smoked when the clock read 0:00. So, it’s easy to see why there hasn’t been much talk about MSU since it’s Nov. 8 loss to Ohio State. At that point, Michigan State’s hopes for postseason play appeared shot...

WATCH: Michigan State Runs End Around With 325-Pound Guard Connor Kruse

This is the second questionable play of the day for the Michigan State Spartans the first being a fake field goal when they were already up 35-0.

With a huge lead already the Spartans opted to run an end around with a very unique end.It was 325 pound guard (and senior) Connor Kruse...

Michigan State Should Be Ashamed For Running a Fake Field Goal Against Rutgers

Michigan State should be ashamed of this play. Here they are up 35-0 and rather than kick a 42-yard field goal they go for a fake and the kicker runs the ball in for a touchdown instead. I am sure it was quite thrilling for the kicker; probably crossed something off of his bucket list.That being said it was so unnecessary. Read more »

With a 45-3 lead, teams have a bit of room to have some fun on offense. Michigan State is destroying new Big Ten foe Rutgers on Senior Day, and took the opportunity to give senior guard Connor Kruse a chance to touch the ball. Kruse got the ball on an end-around, which unfortunately wasn’t very successful, but we support offensive linemen getting touches nevertheless. This is...
