Last-second magic becoming common for Michigan State

Move over, Little Giants. You too, Rocket. Michigan State's latest last-second touchdown doesn't have a name yet, but even compared to the Spartans' previous dramatics under coach Mark Dantonio, this victory over Michigan was on an entirely different level. ''It's soaking in, but at the same time, it's probably just like it is on the other end,'' Dantonio said Sunday. ''A little...

MSU 24, Purdue 21: The good, the bad and the conference win

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- With a 21-0 halftime lead over Purdue, No. 2 Michigan State looked like a team in control at Spartan Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
