Final: Michigan State 55, Indiana 3
By Brian Bennett
Pretty good day to be a Spartan, huh?
Michigan State not only absolutely crushed Indiana on Senior Day while putting up a double-nickel on the scoreboard, but it is likely going to Indianapolis for the Big Ten title game with Michigan holding a commanding lead on Nebraska.
This game was sheer domination by the Spartans, who avoided any sort of letup against an overmatched opponent. Mark Dantonio pulled most of his senior starters at the end of the third quarter, and they got well-deserved ovations.
Indiana fell to 1-10 and has only more chance of getting an FBS victory this season: next week against rival Purdue. I would expect a better performance by the Hoosiers in that rivalry game.
I am planning on getting reaction from Michigan State players in a little bit, assuming Michigan doesn't turn in a historic fourth-quarter collapse in Ann Arbor. Stay tuned for more on what has been a great day in Spartan Nation ...
