The Michigan State Spartans continued to control the action against the Indiana Hoosiers, taking a 34-3 lead to the half in East Lansing.
Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins had a strong half throwing the football. Cousins completed 13 of 19 passes for 242 yards along with two big touchdowns passes of 63 and 47 yards. Wide receivers B.J. Cunningham and Keshawn Martin have done the damage on the other end of those passes for the Spartans.
Cunningham goes to the break with 100 yards receiving and a touchdown while Martin has caught seven passes for 86 yards and a touchdown. Martin also has a rushing touchdown taking a hand off and flying around the right side for a 19-yard touchdown.
Edwin Baker has done most of the work on the ground for Michigan State with 33 yards on nine carries. Baker also found the end zone on a ten yard touchdown around the right side.
The Hoosiers had a chance to work themselves back into the game to start the second quarter but a nine-play drive stalled at MSU's five yard line, forcing IU to settle for a field goal. From there Michigan State tacked on 17 more points to end the half.
