The Michigan State Spartans took care of business on Saturday by dominating the visiting Indiana Hoosiers in a convincing 55-3 win.
After Edwin Baker scored on the first play of the fourth quarter to put Michigan State up 55-3, the Spartans eased off the gas allowing backup players a chance to see the field and finish out the game.
All of that was made possible thanks for a strong offensive attack that helped Michigan State amass 469 total yards with quarterback Kirk Cousins controlling the operation. Cousins had an efficient game throwing the ball, completing 16-23 passes for 273 yards and three touchdowns.
Cousins connected with B.J. Cunningham twice (63 yards, 7 yards) and Keshawn Martin (47 yards) once on his touchdown strikes. Cunningham finished with 132 yards receiving while Martin added 100 yards of his own. Edwin Baker scored two rushing touchdowns while Le'Veon Bell put up 68 yards rushing on nine carries.
Indiana quarterback Tre Roberson had a touch day, completing 10 of 23 passes for only 93 yards and two interceptions before giving way to Edward Wright-Baker who finished the game at QB. Dre Muhammad caught nine balls for 73 yards to lead the Hoosiers.
The win moved the Michigan State to 9-2 on the season and 6-1 in the Big Ten's Legends Division where the Spartans maintain a one-game lead and the tie-breaker over the Michigan Wolverines.
