No way… 29-6? I’m sure this Michigan fan was speaking for the masses after today’s debacle from Spartan Stadium in East Lansing.
Yes Michigan State’s defense is elite and perhaps the best in all of the college football but the Spartans held Michigan to -42, yes -42 yards rushing on the day. Not to mention any other aspect of the Michigan offense was totally shut from the passing game to that lethargic running game.
Furthermore Michigan managed just 168 yards through the air while only going 2 for 13 on third down.
On the defensive side of the ball they stood tall for the most part hold Michigan State to just three points in the first quarter and 13 heading to the half. However unlike Michigan, the Spartans were able to muster some kind of running game to eventually win the the battle at the line and wear down the Michigan front four.
All of this too coming off a bye week.
