Sparty nearly had six points in the first possession of the third frame, when Cousins' pass was mishandled by a wide-open Keshawn Martin on 3rd and 2 that would've given MSU the first down and possibly a touchdown.

Cousins finished with 300 yards on 27 of 50 passing for one touchdown and three interceptions in a game that featured seven consecutive Sparty drives of three-and-out before both teams caught fire on offense late.
