Keshawn Martin shows off speed
By Adam Rittenberg
EAST LANSING, Mich. -- You just knew it was a matter of time until Keshawn Martin found a seam.
Wisconsin provided one on a very mediocre punt, and Martin raced 74 yards for the first punt return touchdown of his career and Michigan State's first since 2002. Martin's speed sets him apart in the Big Ten, and when he gets a hole like the one he just did, fuhgettaboutit.
The Badgers' special-teams issues continue, meanwhile. Wisconsin allowed a kick return touchdown against Arizona State and would have allowed another if not for a tackle at the 1-yard line as the halftime clock expired.
Something tells me we won't see Wisconsin kicking to Martin again.
Michigan State leads 13-10 midway through the second quarter.
