Le'Veon Bell Sets Michigan State Freshman Record

SB Nation’s Michigan State blog, The Only Colors, was happy to see freshman running back Le’Veon Bell live up to the hype surrounding him since the spring.

From TOC’s Afterglow Thread:

Le’Veon Bell will get all the headlines tomorrow, and deservedly so: he showed tremendous vision on his first touchdown run, and remarkable quickness and ability to turn the corner on the aforementioned 75-yard run. He’s the first MSU running back to gain 100 yards in his first game, a feat he accomplished by halftime.

In MSU’s 38-14 win over Western Michigan, Bell rushed for 141 yards on 10 carries with two touchdowns. As mentioned, he became the first freshman to rush for over 100 yards in his debut for the Spartans.

Edwin Baker added another 117 yards on the ground for Michigan State, adding two more touchdowns. It's the first time two MSU players rushed for 100 yards in the same game since 2006, when Javon Ringer (156) and Drew Stanton (105) did it against Pittsburgh.
