EAST LANSING, Mich. – No. 14 Michigan State lost their first Big Ten contest of the season and witnessed their regular season Big Ten Championship hopes become increasingly more difficult, with a 2-1 double-overtime loss to No. 17 Penn State Sunday afternoon.
The Spartans (8-2-2 overall, 1-1-1 Big Ten) dropped only their second game of the season and their eight-game unbeaten streak was snapped by the visiting Nittany Lions (9-3-1, 4-0-0).

Head coach Tom Anastos said the team played much better on Saturday, but special teams did not have a good showing. The Spartans lacked discipline and that resulted in four power play goals by Massachusetts.
