The Michigan State football team continues their winning ways this season with a victory of conference foe, Purdue Boilermakers. The Spartans improve to a 6-1 overall record while still undefeated in the Big Ten at 3-0. Purdue has yet to win a Big Ten conference game as they fall to 0-3, and 1-6 overall.
Denicos Allen shined on the defense again this week. In the second quarter of the game, senior linebacker Max Bullough hit Boilermaker quarterback Danny Etling, forcing a fumble. Allen then swooped up the ball and ran 45 yards for the fifth Spartan defensive touchdown of the season.
Isaiah Lewis forced the other Purdue turnover when he intercepted a pass from Danny Etling.
The defensive front from MSU was on point again this weekend. The top ranked rushing defense in the country allowed only a net of 66 rushing yards from Purdue on 34 carries.
Connor Cook and the rest of the Spartan offense had their struggles through the game. Cook only netted 107 passing yards, throwing 13-25. The only offensive score came in the fourth quarter when an end around to Tony Lippett suddenly turned into a pass play when Lippett hit an open Andrew Gleichert for a touchdown.
Jeremy Langford kept their offensive hopes alive throughout the game as he led the Spartans in rushing yet again. Langford put up solid numbers again with 131 yards on 24 carries.
Mike Sadler was working the magic on his leg again as he kicked three solid punts inside the ten-yard line, keeping the Boilermakers away from any breathing room to work.
Next week the Spartans will travel to Champaigne, Illinois to take on the Illini.
