Eastern Michigan Vs. Michigan State Score: Spartans Hold Narrow 9-7 Lead Through Three Quarters

No. 21 Michigan St. has their hands full with the unranked and winless Eastern Michigan Eagles on Saturday. Through three quarters, they're leading by a score of 9-7. They're playing well on defense, having only allowed a touchdown when Tyler Benz hit Donald Scott for a 23-yard touchdown pass on the first play following a fumble.

The Spartans just can't get anything going on offense. Dan Conroy did miss a 39-yard field goal early on in the game, but a 12-7 lead over the Eagles isn't exactly ideal, either. All 9 points have come off of field goals, with Conroy hitting two from 35 yards and one from 44 yards out.

Andrew Maxwell is having a poor day at quarterback for the Spartans. He's 12-for-24 for just 70 yards, at an average of 2.9 yards per pass. Le'Veon Bell is the only bright spot on MSU's offense, running the ball 26 times for 157 yards, but they've been unable to finish out drives to this point.
