EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Connor Cook threw three touchdown passes in the first quarter - and withstood a hit to his leg that left him momentarily hobbled - to help No. 8 Michigan State to an easy 45-7 victory over Jacksonville State on Friday night.

Cook completed his first nine passes in a nearly flawless performance, but for a brief moment there was concern that the talented junior had hurt himself.

Cook made a nice throw on the run to Tony Lippett for a 64-yard touchdown to open the scoring, but he had to be helped off the field after the play. Jacksonville State's Folo Johnson had come diving in and hit Cook around the left knee.

Cook was able to come back for Michigan State's next drive. He finished 12 of 13 for 285 yards before sitting out the second half.
