Three More Michigan State Players Honored By Big Ten

Eight weeks of college football have been played so far this season and every single week at least one Michigan State player has been honored by the Big Ten. MSU has had players honored for being the top freshman and the top player on offense, defense and special teams. For this past week, MSU actually had a total of three players honored by the conference.

Cousins had a tremendous day against Northwestern, going 29 of 43 for 331 yards and three touchdowns. Hoover recorded nine tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble. Bates, who was also honored after the Notre Dame game for his involvement in the game-winning fake field goal, averaged 43 yards a punt on Saturday and completed a 21-yard pass on the fake punt MSU ran in the fourth quarter.
