Michigan State interim president blast $10,000 fine

Michigan State interim president blast $10,000 fine

A blocked field goal attempt and a late touchdown as time wound down allowed Michigan State to top Purdue 23-13 in their battle of 4-3 Big Ten Conference college football rivals at Spartan Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Penn State (6-2, 3-2 Big Ten) needed one last defensive stand to hold off Iowa (6-2, 3-2), which got to the Nittany Lions 44 with less than a minute left. Using the consistency metric again, Patterson has been sacked 12 times this season, most of those sacks taking place as Patterson circled in the backfield, at times failing to see the open man.

It was a fitting end to an odd game with little sustained offense. The Penn State game will be a true test of the Blue's ability to play at a consistently high level from week to week; this season has demonstrated improvement in nearly every area, but consistency has lagged slightly behind. The Beaver Stadium crowd fell silent as athletic trainers attended to the senior. Wearing down the MI offense gives the Nittany Lions a greater chance of forcing mistakes by Patterson and company. The 6-foot, 202-pound McSorley has started 35 straight games for Penn State since the start of the 2016 season.

Following a muffed punt by Michigan State, the Boilermakers knotted the score at 3-all on Spencer Evans' 28-yard field at the 8:11 juncture. Two games in which it held fourth-quarter leads. The Penn State quarterback's mobility likely will be limited. But Stanley's next throw was a quick pass toward star tight end Noah Fant, who was not looking. At the end of that game, MI led the Big Ten in Penalties, ranked 5th in the nation on penalties, after racking up 11 penalties in that game alone, giving up 100 yards.

The Boilers came out of the locker room and promptly blocked a Coghlin field goal attempt. Reggie Corbin ran for 155 yards and a touchdown for the Fighting Illini (3-5, 1-4).

Purdue was coming off a 49-20 win over Ohio State, but the Boilermakers missed too many opportunities against the Spartans.

Who has the edge when Penn State visits MI on Saturday?

Junior linebacker Tyriq Thompson laid a big hit on Purdue receiver and forced an interception on the same play to give the ball to the Spartans, but Thompson was called for unsportsmanlike conduct after the play. Thompson grabbed it before it hit the ground for an interception with 10:02 to play.

Lombardi would go 26-46 on his passes in his first official start in the Spartan uniform with two touchdown passes from Stewart and Nailor.

Layne would go 1-4 with 11 receiving yards on the offense side and break up four passes made by Purdue's quarterback David Blough.

LINCOLN, Neb. - Adrian Martinez passed for 213 yards and two touchdowns and Devine Ozigbo ran for 110 and another score - all in the first half - and Nebraska prepped for next week's trip to Ohio State with a 45-9 win over Bethune-Cookman.

The Cornhuskers (2-6) scheduled the Wildcats (4-5) of the FCS a month ago as a replacement for the September 1 opener against Akron that was canceled because of severe weather.
