Eastern Michigan Vs. Michigan State Score: Spartans Trail, 7-3, At Halftime

After a scoreless first quarter, we finally had some action between No. 21 Michigan St. and Eastern Michigan on Saturday.

Unfortunately for the Spartans, it's the Eagles who are out in front at halftime, holding a 7-3 advantage. After a turnover in MSU territory (a Bennie Fowler fumble, recovered by Justin Cudworth), quarterback Tyler Benz hit Donald Scott for a 23-yard touchdown to make the score 7-3.

The Spartans finished the first quarter at the start of a promising drive, as running back Le'Veon Bell had notched just their fifth first down of the day. Andrew Maxwell got the second quarter started off the right way, though, hitting Bennie Fowler for a 15-yard reception. A couple plays later, Bell hit a 15-yard run and Dan Conroy kicked a 35-yard field goal to make it 3-0.

Conroy had previously missed one from 39 yards. Michigan State will need to do a better job of extending their drives in the second half, given that they've been holding Eastern Michigan just fine on offense. They'll be kicking themselves big time if they manage to lose thanks to a fumble.
