Cook taking the reins for Michigan State
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Connor Cook has emerged from Michigan State's quarterback competition - just in time for the Spartans' first big test of the season.
Michigan State's offense finally began pulling its weight Saturday, scoring seven touchdowns in a 55-17 win over Youngstown State. It's hard to tell how much progress the Spartans made against the Penguins, who play in the Football Championship Subdivision - but next weekend will surely present a different kind of challenge when Michigan State plays at Notre Dame.
Michigan State needed one of its quarterbacks to show progress after the defense accounted for four of the team's six touchdowns in the first two games. Cook answered the call, leading the Spartans to a 35-10 halftime lead, and they finished with 547 yards of offense.
