Seniors Show Out in 45-3 Win Versus Rutgers

Nothing but pressure and expectations has been placed on this year’s Michigan State football senior class. After last season’s Big Ten and Rose Bowl championships, the Spartans failed to live up to the unfair hype assigned to them in 2014.

Although there was no big stage or trophy to be played for, in their last game together at Spartan Stadium, the seniors stole the show in a dominating 45-3 win against Rutgers. Read More…

Shelton in the end zone for the fifth Michigan State score of the half. Read More…

After grinding out a win at Maryland (and covering the -12) last Saturday night, the Michigan State Spartans football team returns to East Lansing for their final home game of the season, favored by 22 points against Rutgers.

Do the Spartans have enough motivation to blow out the Scarlet Knights, or will this be a rainy noon kickoff game that sees Rutgers keeping it too close for comfort? Dan Krier & Brooks Laimbeer look at this week’s games (including the Lions +7 @ New England) and discuss the probable NCAA Football Championship Final Four.

Spartan Football Bounces Back at Maryland

COLLEGE PARK, MD. – Special teams and defense were key in No. 12 Michigan State’s road to a 37-15 victory over Maryland.

A rarity for this season, Connor Cook was unable to find the end zone for the entire game.  Cook had sixteen consecutive games with a touchdown pass until Saturday. Michael Geiger picked up the slack for Michigan State’s offense, making three out of four field goal attempts, all in the first half. Read More…

Walk the Line 2014: NCAA Wk 12 & NFL Wk 11 – 11/14/14

There’s no looking back now; only forward to what needs to be done next.

After suffering a devastating and deflating home loss to the underdog Ohio St. Buckeyes last week here in East Lansing, the Michigan State Spartans football team must regroup and get the season back on track as they travel to Maryland as 12-point favorites for a night game against the Big Ten newcomer Terrapins.

Some great games in both college (like Miss St. +8 @ Alabama) and pro (Detroit Lions +2 @ Arizona) on the menu for this week’s show… Read More…

Spartans Look to Gain from Loss, Move on to Maryland

There’s no shame in being 7-2 and No. 12 in the AP Top 25 poll. Certainly Mark Dantonio would rather be 9-0, ranked No. 1 in all of the polls and be looking to continue perfection, but for Michigan State in 2014, that just is not the case.

“I don’t want anybody to feel bad for us,” Dantonio said in his press conference on Tuesday. “We’re still in the top 20.” Read More…

Spartan Defense Can’t Contain Buckeyes

The first half was a shootout, but the Buckeyes’ offense was too much for the Spartans as they went on to win on the road in East Lansing 49-37.

MSU looked as if they were taking control of the game, as Jeremy Langford ran in a touchdown to give Michigan State a 28-14 lead.  The play was called back, however, on a holding penalty by center Jack Allen. Michael Geiger then missed a field goal, and on the next play from scrimmage J.T. Barrett found MIke Thomas for a 79-yard touchdown. Read More…

No. 7 Michigan State Falls to No. 13 Ohio State

Big plays by J.T. Barrett and Ezekiel Elliott were too much for Michigan State’s defense as the Spartans lose to the Buckeyes 49-37.

After heading into halftime trailing by one touchdown, MSU was only able to tack on three points via Michael Geiger field goal in the third quarter. Ezekiel Elliott added a touchdown run late in the third quarter giving OSU a 10-point lead. Read More…

HALFTIME: OSU 28 MSU 21 in Offensive Shootout

At the end of the first half, Michigan State trails The Ohio State 21 to 28.  Connor Cook hooked up with Keith Mumphery on the first drive of the game for a 15-yard touchdown.  The Buckeyes responded with two big plays by RB Ezekiel Elliott, capped off by a 5-yard touchdown run by J.T. Barret. Barrett added another rushing touchdown after Jeremy Langford scored the second TD for MSU on a 33-yard run.  Langford had 94 rushing yards in the first half.

Walk the Line 2014: NCAA Wk 11 & NFL Wk 10 – 11/7/14

Now the real season starts! With the Michigan State Spartans football team staring up at both TCU and Kansas State in the most recent NCAA College Football Playoff Poll, it’s going to take a win over the Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday and a cover of the -3.5 to leave a lasting impression on the selection committee.

In a rematch of last year’s Big Ten Championship game, MSU is in need of a convincing victory over Urban Meyer for the second straight season. Other great games Saturday include Notre Dame +2.5 @ Arizona St. and a death match between the aforementioned TCU, who sits at -6 versus K-State.

Dantonio and Players Talk Importance of Budding Ohio State “Rivalry”

Michigan State has developed brief “rivalries” with Big Ten opponents over the years.

Most recently was with Wisconsin, a series that reached it’s peak in 2011 when the teams faced off in two classic matchups. The Spartans took the first game after Keith Nichol caught a hail mary from Kirk Cousins as time expired. The two teams faced off again in the inaugural Big Ten Championship, with Wisconsin barely edging the Spartans. Read More…

Walk the Line 2014: NCAA Wk 10 & NFL Wk 9 – 10/31/14

Happy Halloween from Walk the Line!

It’s a bye week for the Michigan State Spartans football team. It’s also a bye week for ex-Michigan Wolverines athletic director Dave Brandon, whose former team was pummeled last week 35-11 by a Spartans squad who showed the world what it’s like to shove it up into someone’s misplaced sense of superiority. Props to Dantonio. No more need to be diplomatic.

The question of MSU’s run to the College Football Playoff now centers on the Ohio State Buckeyes and a matchup here in East Lansing on Nov. 8th. In the meantime, the best of 2014 is just getting started. Our select menu on this week’s show… Read More…

It’s Personal: No. 8 Spartans Win 35-11 Against Rival Wolverines

The No. 8 Michigan State Spartans knew they needed a win against their in-state rivals on Saturday.

MSU was in control for all four quarters, winning 35-11.

Michigan State opened the game with a 75-yard touchdown drive, capped off with a Jeremy Langford two-yard rush. Read More…

Spartans Dominate Michigan Again, Win 35-11

After a slow start in the first half, the Michigan State Spartans dominated on both sides of the ball in their 35-11 victory over the Wolverines.

Tony Lippett scored a touchdown with a 70-yard catch and run from Connor Cook.  After this, R.J. Williamson intercepted a Devin Gardner pass for a touchdown.  The Wolverines drove into the MSU red zone twice in the second half, only to be stopped on fourth down and have a pass intercepted by Taiwan Jones. Read More…

HALFTIME: MSU 14 – UM 3

Michigan State linebacker Chris Frey was ejected for targeting, and Lawrence Thomas recovered a Michigan fumble.  Michigan defensive back Delano Hill recovered a fumble of his own late in the first half.  Michigan kicker Matt Wile made a 48-yard kick after the turnover. Read More…
