The Michigan State Spartans were expected to roll over the Indiana Hoosiers on Saturday afternoon considering the visiting Hoosiers have yet to win a Big Ten game this season and the Spartans are ranked as the 15th-best team in the country. Sparty has lived up to the expectations early, too, as they lead the Hoosiers 34-3 at halftime.
Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 13 of his 19 passing attempts for 241 yards and two touchdowns to give the Spartans a 17-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. With a good lead and plenty of clock to kill, the Michigan State offense has turned to its running game ever since.
Le'Veon Bell has rushed six times for 35 yards, Edwin Baker has a touchdown to compensate for his eight rushes for 27 yards and Keshawn Martin's lone rushing attempt went for 19 yards and a touchdown as well. Martin also has seven receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown while Cousins' other throwing touchdown went to B.J. Cunningham on a 63-yard strike.
