There are would-be upsets and there are would-be colossal upsets. And then there is what's going on in Lansing, which is basically the smashing of any hopes Indiana had of pulling off either as the Hoosiers get annihilated by Michigan State.
The Spartans, contenders for the "Division with Nebraska and Michigan" Championship, scored three times in the first quarter and answered Indiana's score early in the second quarter with a touchdown 25 seconds later for a 24-3 lead. Kirk Cousins has touchdown passes to B.J. Cunningham and Keshawn Martin, who has also run for a 19-yard score. Michigan State has already wracked up 259 yards of total offense, while Indiana is struggling to crack the century mark. Cousins is 9-of-11 for 196 yards and the two scores.
