Michigan State Vs. Wisconsin Score: Spartans Take 29-21 Lead In Big Ten Championship Game

The Wisconsin Badgers exposed the Michigan State Spartans' defense in the first quarter for three touchdowns on three possessions, but they've failed to convert even a first down on their first three possessions in the second quarter. In all, they have negative-11 yards in the second quarter opposite Michigan State's 124. 

Michigan State's offense has kept motoring. After stopping Wisconsin to a third three-and-out after a Kirk Cousins' interception, the Spartans went 84 yards on eight plays for a score. 

The Spartans ran six times on the eight play drive and scored on a Le'Veon Bell eight yard run, but two lengthy pass completions paced the drive. Keshawn Martin made a nice 28 yard catch along the sidelines on a third-and-six and Keith Nichol caught a 17 yard pass to put the Spartans into the red zone. 

Kirk Cousins is 10-for-11 with 134 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. The Spartans have now scored 22 unanswered points.
