Through one quarter of play, No. 21 Michigan State hasn't managed to put up points against unranked Eastern Michigan, and the game remains tied at 0-0. The Spartans have only managed five first downs, two of which came on a drive that stalled in Eastern Michigan territory. Unfortunately, Dan Conroy managed to miss the 39-yard field goal that would have put the Spartans up by three points.
Their defense is playing well, though, as they've only allowed a single Eastern Michigan first down, which came on their first possession of the day. Their biggest gain was a 9-yard run from Javonti Greene, but they managed to follow that up with two rushes for no gain and were forced to punt.
The first quarter came to an end with Michigan State back in their own territory, after picking up their fifth first down following two strong rushes from Le'Veon Bell. One of them was 9 yards, the other for 5. We'll see if they can turn it into points in the second quarter.
