FIRST-AND-10 – • Big Ten Champion Michigan State (12-1, 8-0 Big Ten) will make its first-ever Bowl Championship Series appearance on Jan. 1, 2014, when the Spartans play Pac-12 Champion Stanford (11-2, 7-2 Pac-12) in the 100th Rose Bowl Game presented by VIZIO at 4:30 p.m. ET in Pasadena, Calif. Winners of nine straight, Michigan State recorded its school-record 12th win of the 2013 season by defeating second-ranked Ohio State, 34-24, in the Big Ten Championship Game. Stanford earned its second-straight trip to the Rose Bowl with a 38-14 victory at No. 11 Arizona State in the Pac-12 Championship Game. • Michigan State is making its 24th postseason bowl appearance overall, including its fifth trip to the Rose Bowl. The Spartans are 9-14 (.391) in bowl games, including a 3-1 record in previous Rose Bowl appearances (defeated No. 5 UCLA, 28-20, in 1954; defeated No. 4 UCLA, 17-14, in 1956; lost to No. 5 UCLA, 14-12, in 1966; and defeated No. 16 USC, 20-17, in 1988). MSU is looking for a school-record third-straight bowl win after topping No. 18 Georgia in the 2012 Outback Bowl, 33-30 in triple overtime, and edging TCU in the 2012 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, 17-16. • MSU ranked No. 4 in the final BCS Standings - its highest ranking ever. The Spartans are ranked No. 4 in the latest Associated Press and USA TODAY Polls. It marks MSU’s highest ranking in the AP Poll since Sept. 18, 1967, when the Spartans stood No. 3 prior to the season opener against Houston. It also marks MSU’s highest ranking since USA TODAY began administering the coaches poll during the 1991-92 season. • The Spartans finished their Big Ten regular-season schedule with a perfect 8-0 record for the first time in school history and claimed their second Legends Division title in three seasons. Michigan State became the 14th Big Ten team to post an 8-0 mark in league play. The Spartans are the first Big Ten team to win all eight of its conference games by double-digit points since the league went to an eight-game schedule in 1971. In addition, MSU is the first undefeated Big Ten team to win all of its league games by double-figure points since Michigan in 1943 (6-0 record). • Michigan State is making its school-record seventh consecutive bowl appearance (2007 Champs Sports Bowl, 2009 Capital One Bowl, 2010 Alamo Bowl, 2011 Capital One Bowl, 2012 Outback Bowl, 2012 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, 2014 Rose Bowl). • The 2014 Rose Bowl Game marks the sixth-ever meeting between Michigan State and Stanford. MSU won the first-ever meeting, 38-14, on Oct. 8, 1955, in Spartan Stadium. The Spartans also defeated the Cardinal in 1956 and 1961. Stanford recorded its first win in the series in 1962 and won the last matchup in the 1996 Sun Bowl, 38-0.

• Through 13 games, Michigan State’s defense ranks No. 1 in the FBS in total defense (248.2 yards per game), rushing defense (80.8 ypg.) and opponent third-down conversions (.277). MSU has been ranked No. 1 in the nation in total defense for 13 consecutive weeks. The Spartans also rank among the national leaders in pass efficiency defense (second with 91.5 rating), first downs defense (fourth at 14.5 pg.), scoring defense (fourth at 12.7 ppg.) and passing defense (sixth at 167.4 ypg.). Michigan State also leads the Big Ten in seven defensive categories (total defense, scoring defense, rushing defense, pass defense, pass efficiency defense, opponent third-down conversions, first downs defense). • The Spartans have won 41 of their last 53 games (.774), dating back to the beginning of the 2010 season. The 41 wins are most in the Big Ten and tied for ninth most in the FBS during that same time period. In addition, MSU has recorded 35 Big Ten victories since 2008, the most of any team in the conference (Note: Ohio State has won 40 games, but had to vacate seven victories following the 2010 season.). Since 2010, the Spartans have won two Big Ten Championships (2010, 2013), two Big Ten Legends Division titles (2011, 2013), two bowl games (2012 Outback Bowl, 2012 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl), and produced back-to-back 11-win seasons in 2010-11 for the first time in program history. • Seventh-year Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio swept Big Ten Coach of the Year honors by winning both the Dave McClain Coach of the Year (media) and Hayes-Schembechler Coach of the Year (coaches). Six Spartans were named to the All-Big Ten First Team and a total of 16 players received allconference recognition. The six first-team selections are the most for Michigan State since 1990, and the 16 honorees overall equal the second most under Dantonio (19 in 2011, 16 in 2010). Two Spartans took home individual awards, as senior Darqueze Dennard was named the Tatum-Woodson Big Ten Defensive Back of the Year, while sophomore Shilique Calhoun was named the Smith-Brown Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year. Dennard, Calhoun and senior linebacker Max Bullough were first-team selections by both the coaches and media. Junior safety Kurtis Drummond, senior safety Isaiah Lewis and junior punter Mike Sadler were named first-team All-Big Ten by the coaches. The five first-team selections on defense are tied for the most in school history (1966). • The 100th Rose Bowl Game marks the first time since the “Game of the Century” in 1966 (No. 1 Notre Dame vs. No. 2 Michigan State) in which MSU will play a top-five AP team while also being ranked in the top five. No. 5 Stanford is also the highest ranked opponent MSU has played in a bowl game since the 1966 Rose Bowl (UCLA finished the 1965 regular season ranked No. 4 in the final AP Poll).

SPARTAN ROSE BOWL FLASHBACKS – Michigan State is making its fifth appearance in the Rose Bowl. The Spartans have a 3-1 record in previous Rose Bowl appearances (defeated No. 5 UCLA, 28-20, in 1954; defeated No. 4 UCLA, 17-14, in 1956; lost to No. 5 UCLA, 14-12, in 1966; and defeated No. 16 USC, 20-17, in 1988). Jan. 1, 1954 | No. 3 Michigan State 28, No. 5 UCLA 20: Billy Wells ran for one touchdown and returned a punt for another score to lead No. 3 Michigan State to a 28-20 victory over No. 5 UCLA in the 1954 Rose Bowl. UCLA jumped out to a 14-0 lead, capitalizing on two Spartan turnovers. Midway through the first quarter, Jim Salsbury recovered a fumble on the MSU 37 and six plays later, Paul Cameron hit Bill Stits with a 13-yard TD strike to give the Bruins a 7-0 lead. Early in the second quarter, Hardiman Cureton and Bob Long combined to sack Spartan QB Earl Morrall, who fumbled, and Cureton fell on it at the MSU 18. Seven plays later, Cameron scored on a 2-yard run off left tackle. The momentum changed midway through the second quarter when Ellis Duckett blocked Cameron’s punt from the UCLA 25 and returned it 6 yards for a touchdown as the Spartans cut the deficit to 14-7 at halftime. The Spartans dominated play in the third quarter. Michigan State took the second-half kickoff and drove 78 yards in 14 plays with LeRoy Bolden scoring on a 1-yard dive to tie the game at 14. Wells capped a 10-play, 73-yard drive with a 2-yard TD run to give the Spartans their first lead at 21-14 late in the third quarter. Early in the fourth quarter, UCLA forced another fumble and Jack Ellena recovered it at the MSU 24. Two plays later, Cameron hit Rommie Loudd with a 28-yard TD toss but Cameron’s conversion attempt sailed wide and the Bruins still trailed 21-20. Michigan State iced the game when Wells returned Cameron’s punt 62 yards for a touchdown with 4:51 left in the fourth quarter. Wells led a well-balanced Spartan running attack, picking up 80 yards on 14 carries. Jan. 2, 1956 | No. 2 Michigan State 17, No. 4 UCLA 14: Dave Kaiser converted his first career field-goal attempt, a 41-yarder with seven seconds left, to give No. 2 Michigan State a 17-14 win over No. 4 UCLA in the 1956 Rose Bowl. Michigan State found itself in an early hole as Earl Morrall’s pass on the first play from scrimmage was intercepted by Jim Decker and returned 4 yards to the MSU 16. Four plays later, Bob Davenport scored on a 2-yard run over left guard to give the Bruins a 7-0 lead with 11:48 left in the first quarter. Midway through the second quarter, Michigan State put together an 11-play, 80-yard drive to pull even at 7. Walt Kowalczyk’s 30-yard run to the UCLA 17 set up Morrall’s 13-yard touchdown toss to Clarence Peaks. On the second play of the fourth quarter, the Spartans took their first lead at 14-7 on Peaks’ 67-yard TD pass to John Lewis, who caught the ball on the 50 and took it the distance. Five minutes later, UCLA’s passing game produced a big play as Ronnie Knox hit Decker with a 47-yard bomb to the MSU 7. Three plays later, Doug Peters scored on a 1-yard plunge at center.

2013 MICHIGAN STATE FOOTBALL • 100TH ROSE BOWL GAME VS. STANFORD

2013 SPARTAN FOOTBALL GAME NOTES Jan. 1, 1966 | No. 5 UCLA 14, No. 2 Michigan State 12: Gary Beban ran for two touchdowns and threw for 147 yards to lead No. 5 UCLA to a 14-12 upset win over No. 2 Michigan State in the 1966 Rose Bowl. Michigan State committed four first-half turnovers, with the first coming late in the first quarter as Don Japinga fumbled away a punt at the Spartan 6 that UCLA’s John Erquiaga recovered. On the opening play of the second quarter, Beban scored on a 1-yard sneak to give the Bruins a 7-0 lead. UCLA then surprised the Spartans with an on-sides kick that Bruin Dallas Grider recovered at the MSU 42. Beban hooked up with Kurt Altenburg for a 27-yard pass to the MSU 1. Beban capped off the five-play, 42-yard drive with another 1-yard sneak as UCLA scored twice in 3:07 to build a 14-0 lead. Michigan State rallied late in the fourth quarter, scoring twice in the final 6:13. Steve Juday’s 42-yard strike to Gene Washington set up Bob Apisa’s 38-yard TD run. Juday’s two-point pass attempt failed and the Spartans trailed 14-6. The Spartan defense held on the next series and Bubba Smith partially blocked Larry Cox’s punt to give MSU possession at the UCLA 49. Juday finished off the 14-play scoring drive with a 1-yard sneak with :31 left. On the two-point try, Apisa was stopped short of the goal line by Grider and Bob Stiles. UCLA stopped the Spartans on fourth-and-1 plays three times in the second half, including twice in the fourth quarter. Michigan State outgained UCLA in total yards, 314-212. The Spartans picked up 204 yards on the ground, with Clinton Jones rushing for 113 yards on 20 carries. Jan. 1, 1988 | No. 8 Michigan State 20, No. 16 USC 17: John Langeloh kicked a 36-yard field goal with 4:14 left in the fourth quarter, which proved to be the game winner, as No. 8 Michigan State defeated No. 16 Southern Cal, 20-17, in the 1988 Rose Bowl. The Spartans, making their first trip to Pasadena in 22 years, ended the Big Ten’s six-game losing streak in the Rose Bowl. USC scored on its second possession as a 12-play, 52-yard drive produced a 34-yard field goal by Quin Rodriguez. MSU responded with a 15-play, 76-yard drive of its own to take a 7-3 lead on Lorenzo White’s 5-yard touchdown run around left end with :54 left in the first quarter. The Spartans built a 14-3 advantage early in the second quarter as Bobby McAllister’s 55-yard completion to Andre Rison set up White’s second TD run from 3 yards out. The Trojans cut the deficit to 14-10 early in the third quarter as Rodney Peete hit Kevin Henry with a 33-yard TD strike. Michigan State extended its lead to 17-10 on Langeloh’s 40-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter. USC put together a 10-play, 80-yard drive to tie the score at 17 on Peete’s 22-yard TD toss to Henry in the back of the end zone with 8:33 remaining. Facing a third-and-8 from the MSU 30, McAllister eluded a heavy rush and completed a 36-yard pass to Rison for a first down at the USC 34. Blake Ezor carried the ball six straight times to the USC 18 to set up Langeloh’s game-winning field goal. USC took the ensuing kickoff and drove to the MSU 30 but Peete fumbled away the center snap and Todd Krumm recovered. John Miller iced the game for the Spartans, intercepting Peete’s “Hail Mary” pass at the MSU 13 with only :03 left. USC dominated the final stats, outgaining MSU, 410-276, in total yards, but the Trojans committed five turnovers while the Spartans managed to play error-free football. White gained a game-high 113 yards rushing and scored twice. Peete completed 22-of-41 throws for 249 yards and two TDs, but he was intercepted three times.

MSU/LOS ANGELES CONNECTIONS – • Former Michigan State men’s basketball All-American Earvin “Magic” Johnson helped the Los Angeles Lakers win five NBA World Championships in the 1980s (1980, ‘82, ‘85, ‘87, ‘88). Johnson is currently a member of the ownership team that purchased the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2012. A two-time All-American at Michigan State, Johnson was a member of the 1979 NCAA Championship team. Despite playing just two seasons at MSU, he totaled 1,059 points and 491 assists. He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2002 and the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009. The 6-foot-9 Johnson revolutionized the point guard position, leading the Spartans to a 25-5 mark as a freshman in 1977-78, capturing a Big Ten title and advancing to the Elite Eight. He averaged 17.0 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.4 assists in his first year of college action, earning All-America accolades. One year later, he led the Spartans to the ultimate prize, averaging 17.1 points, 7.3 rebounds and 8.4 assists as a sophomore. His 8.4 assist-per-game average is the highest in MSU history. Johnson was a consensus first-team All-American in 1979, also earning Most Outstanding Player honors at the Final Four. Johnson was named an All-Star 12 times in his 13-year NBA career, and garnered MVP honors in the game twice (1990, 1992). He was a three-time NBA MVP (1987, 1989, 1990) and also a three-time NBA Finals MVP (1980, 1982, 1987). Johnson finished his career No. 1 in NBA history in career assists and No. 2 in career steals. The Lansing, Mich., native was a member of the 1992 United States men’s basketball team that captured the gold medal in Barcelona. • Former Michigan State baseball and football All-American Kirk Gibson spent three seasons playing with the Los Angeles Dodgers (1988-90). Joining the Dodgers in 1988, Gibson spurred Los Angeles to a World Championship in his first year as he was named the MVP of the National League. Gibson produced one of the most dramatic home runs in baseball history in Game 1 of the World Series against Oakland, hitting a two-out, two-run, pinch-hit homer in the bottom of the ninth off of Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley that gave the Dodgers a 5-4 win and propelled them to a sweep over the Athletics. One of the great receivers in MSU history, Gibson was an All-American as a senior in 1978 as chosen by United Press, The Sporting News, Football News and the Newspaper Enterprise Association. He hauled in 42 receptions for a team-high 806 yards, then No. 1 on the school’s seasonal list. He paced all Big Ten players in receptions (31) and receiving yards (613) in league outings. His game-breaking speed helped the Spartans to a Big Ten co-championship and a No. 12 national ranking. He closed out his career as MSU’s all-time leader in receptions (112) and receiving yards (2,347). In addition, his 21.0 yards-per-catch average still ranks as the No. 1 mark in Spartan history. In 1996, he was named to the MSU Centennial Super Squad. Gibson was a standout as a baseball player as well, earning All-America honors in that sport, making him just one of three MSU athletes to earn that recognition in two sports. A first-round draft pick (No. 12 overall) by the Detroit Tigers in 1978, he played on Detroit’s World Series championship team in 1984. In his 17year major league career, Gibson batted .268 with 255 home runs and 870 RBIs. Gibson recently completed his third season as manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks. In his first full season as a manager, Gibson was named the 2011 National League Manager of the Year after helping guide Arizona to a 94-68 record and an NL West title. Gibson is just the fourth major leaguer to win both an MVP award and a Manager of the Year Award. • Former Michigan State All-America fullback Bob Apisa, who was a member of the 1965 and 1966 Big Ten and National Championship teams, currently lives in Los Angeles. Apisa was an All-America selection as a sophomore in 1965 by Football News and his junior year in 1966 by Football News and the New York News. In ’65, despite missing most of the last three games due to a knee injury, he rushed for 666 yards, then the best seasonal mark turned in by a Spartan fullback, along with nine TDs. In 1966, Apisa once again was hampered by knee problems, but rushed for 445 yards and eight six-pointers. He finished his career as MSU’s most prolific rushing fullback with 1,343 yards in 262 attempts. Apisa was selected in the ninth round of the 1968 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers.

• Former Michigan State All-Big Ten first-team linebacker/defensive end Richard Saul played 12 seasons for the Los Angeles Rams (1970-81) and was a six-time Pro Bowler as an offensive lineman. He converted to a center in the pros. A three-year letterwinner (1967-69) who was a team captain his senior season, Saul also was a first-team Academic All-American at MSU in 1969.

In his final game in a Spartan uniform, Cousins completed 27-of-50 throws for 300 yards, one score and three interceptions in MSU’s 33-30 triple-overtime victory over No. 18 Georgia in the 2012 Outback Bowl. • The Holland, Mich., native ranks first in MSU history in pass completions (723), passing yards (9,131), TD passes (66), passing efficiency (146.1), 200-yard passing games (26) and total offense (9,004 yards). He also is listed among MSU’s all-time leaders in pass attempts (second with 1,128), completion percentage (second at .641; 723 of 1,128) and passing yards per game (third at 202.9). Cousins also finished his career ranked among the Big Ten’s all-time Top 10 in completion percentage (tied for sixth), passing efficiency (seventh), passing yards (10th) and TD passes (tied for 10th). • Cousins is in his second season with the Washington Redskins.

COOK EARNS COACHES’ ALL-BIG TEN SECOND-TEAM HONORS – In his 12 starts (11-1 record, 8-0 Big Ten regular-season games), sophomore quarterback Connor Cook has completed 195-of-328 throws (.595) for 2,381 yards (198.4 per game), 20 touchdowns and five interceptions. He sports an impressive TD-to-interception ratio of 4-to-1. A second-team All-Big Ten selection by the coaches, Cook ranked among the conference leaders in Big Ten play in passing yards (fourth at 213.5 ypg.), passing efficiency (fourth with a 138.6 rating), total offense (fifth at 215.6 ypg.) and touchdown passes (sixth with 12). Overall, he ranks tied for fifth in TD passes (20), seventh in passing (186.4 ypg.), eighth in total offense (193.4 ypg.) and and ninth in passing efficiency (133.9 rating). Cook has recorded seven 200-yard passing games. He ranks among Michigan State’s Top 10 single-season leaders in TD passes (tied for fifth with 20), pass attempts (eighth with 344), pass completions (eighth with 201) and passing yards (11th with 2,423). Cook has 52 completions of 15 or more yards, including 19 of 25 or more yards. The 6-foot-4, 218-pound Cook earned Big Ten Championship Game MVP honors after completing 24-of-40 throws for a career-high 304 yards, three TDs and one interception as the Spartans knocked off previously unbeaten and second-ranked Ohio State, 34-24, to claim a berth in the Rose Bowl. He threw TD strikes of 72 yards to Keith Mumphery and 33 yards to Tony Lippett in the first half, and his 9-yard TD toss to Josiah Price gave MSU the lead for good at 27-24 early in the fourth quarter. With the game on the line in the fourth quarter, Cook connected on 9-of-13 passes for 103 yards, including the go-ahead score. He completed 16-of-23 passes for 293 yards and two TDs in MSU’s 30-6 victory at Northwestern, as the Spartans claimed the Big Ten Legends Division title for the second time in three seasons. Cook posted those impressive numbers despite facing a wind chill of 9 degrees and wind gusts from 21-29 mph. He threw scoring passes of 87 yards to Bennie Fowler in the second quarter and 15 yards to Price in the third quarter. His 87-yard TD strike to Fowler tied the fourth-longest passing play in MSU history. He connected on 15-of-31 passes for 193 yards and a TD in MSU’s first-ever win over Nebraska, 41-28, in Lincoln. On a third-and-13 play midway through the fourth quarter, he hooked up with Mumphery for a 27-yard scoring play as MSU took a 34-21 lead. Cook hit 18-of-33 throws for 252 yards, one touchdown and one interception in MSU’s 29-6 win over Michigan. His 14-yard TD strike to Fowler in the back, right corner of the end zone with 23 seconds left in the first half gave MSU the lead for good at 13-6. Early in the fourth quarter, Cook scored his first career rushing TD on a 1-yard run as MSU built a 22-6 lead. He completed 15-of-16 passes for 208 yards and three TDs in MSU’s 42-3 victory at Illinois. His .938 completion percentage set the school single-game record and marked the seventh-best single-game total in Big Ten history. Cook’s 264.8 passing efficiency rating against Illinois ranks as the fifth-best single-game total posted by a quarterback in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision this season and the best against a BCS opponent. He finished the game with 11-straight completions for 185 yards, including scoring tosses of 29 yards to Fowler, 13 yards to Price and a career-long 47 yards to Mumphery. It marked the first time a Spartan quarterback had completed 11 passes in a row since Kirk Cousins against Notre Dame in 2011. Cook completed passes to 10 different receivers. He led the Spartans to TDs on six consecutive possessions. Cook hit 22-of-31 throws for 235 yards, two TDs and an interception in MSU’s 42-28 Homecoming victory over Indiana. He threw TD passes of 11 yards to Jeremy Langford and 34 yards to Fowler in the second quarter. He completed passes to 11 different receivers. Cook set career highs for pass completions (25) and pass attempts (44) in MSU’s 26-14 win at Iowa in his Big Ten debut. His 277 passing yards mark the second-highest single-game total by a Spartan quarterback against Iowa (Brian Hoyer threw for 308 yards at Iowa in 2007). Cook completed scoring strikes of 46 yards to Macgarrett Kings Jr. and 37 yards to Fowler. His 37-yard TD toss to Fowler gave MSU the lead for good at 17-14 early in the third quarter. He completed passes to nine different receivers. Cook also rushed six times for 21 yards to account for 298 total yards. He attempted 119 passes before throwing his first interception of the 2013 season (fourth quarter at Iowa). In his first career road start at No. 22 Notre Dame, he hit 16-of-32 passes for 135 yards, including a 12-yard TD toss to Kings midway through the second quarter. The Hinckley, Ohio, native recorded his first career 200-yard passing game in MSU’s 55-17 victory over Youngstown State, completing 15-of-22 passes for 202 yards and a career-best four TDs. Cook became the first Spartan QB to throw four TD passes in a game since Brian Hoyer against Penn State in 2007.

LANGFORD ECLIPSES 1,000-YARD RUSHING MILESTONE – Junior Jeremy Langford leads the team in rushing attempts (269), rushing yards (1,338), rushing TDs (17), scoring (108 points) and all-purpose yards (1,478). He ranks among the Big Ten leaders in rushing TDs (first with 17), total TDs (first with 18), scoring (third at 8.3 ppg.), rushing (sixth at 102.9 ypg.) and allpurpose yards (eighth with 113.7 ypg.). Seventy-four of his 269 carries (28 percent) have resulted in either a TD or a first down. Langford ranks among Michigan State’s single-season leaders in rushing TDs (tied for fifth with 17), rushing attempts (eighth with 269) and rushing yards (11th with 1,338). The 6-foot, 206-pound Langford plays his best when the game is on the line, as his 386 fourth-quarter rushing yards (6.1 yards per carry) rank sixth in the NCAA FBS, according to cfbstats.com. He has helped ice games with five fourth-quarter TD runs, including four scores covering more than 25 yards: 40 yards against Michigan, 37 yards at Nebraska, 37 yards at Northwestern and 26 yards against Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game. Langford set the school record with his eighth-straight 100-yard rushing game in MSU’s 34-24 win over No. 2 Ohio State, with 24 rushes for 128 yards. He averaged 8.1 yards per carry (8 for 65 yards) in the fourth quarter, including a 26-yard TD run with 2:16 left that provided the final 10-point margin.

The Wayne, Mich., native has rushed for 1,027 yards during his eight-game streak, averaging 128.4 yards per game. His eight-consecutive 100-yard rushing games broke the single-season record he shared with Lorenzo White (seven-straight 100-yard games in 1985).

He scored on a 15-yard run in the first quarter and ripped off a career-long 44-yard run late in the fourth quarter.

GENE WASHINGTON HONORED WITH BIG TEN’S FORD-KINNICK LEADERSHIP AWARD Michigan State’s Gene Washington has been named the 2013 recipient of the Big Ten’s Ford-Kinnick Leadership Award, while Purdue’s Drew Brees was honored with the Dungy-Thompson Humanitarian Award. The awards recognize Big Ten football players that have achieved success in the areas of humanitarianism and leadership after their college careers have ended. Washington helped lead the Spartans to consecutive Big Ten and national championships in 1965 and 1966. Twice named a first-team All-American, he spent his time away from the field helping counsel students as they started their careers. Drafted eighth overall in the 1967 NFL Draft, Washington went on to become a two-time Pro Bowl selection and a first-team All-Pro honoree in 1969 with the Minnesota Vikings. During his time with the Vikings, Washington began working with 3M in 1969, developing and directing the company’s first in-house diversity career fair program. In addition, he assisted Michigan State Student Affairs from 1968-72, helping create the school’s first diversity career fair program involving nationwide employers. Washington returned to 3M in 1988, spending 22 years as a conduit for minority engineering candidates making their way into corporate America. A recipient of the Big Ten Medal of Honor in 1967, Washington also claimed an NCAA title in the 60-yard hurdles in 1965 and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2011.

He tallied eight stops, including a 2-yard sack, and two QB hurries in MSU’s 21-6 win over South Florida. The Spartan defense allowed 12 first downs, 89 rushing yards, 66 passing yards and 155 total yards against USF, as the Bulls went one-of-13 (.077) on third-down conversions. Allen produced five tackles, including a 6-yard sack, in MSU’s 26-13 victory over Western Michigan in the season opener. The Spartan defense limited WMU to 11 rushing yards on 27 carries (0.4 avg.). The Hamilton, Ohio, native ranks among MSU’s all-time leaders in tackles for loss (third with 44.5) and sacks (sixth with 19.5). Allen has started 39 consecutive games at linebacker – the second-longest active streak on the team. CALHOUN NAMED BIG TEN DEFENSIVE LINEMAN OF THE YEAR – Sophomore defensive end Shilique Calhoun, who leads the Spartans in quarterback hurries (18), QB hits (34) and sacks (7.5 for 45), has been named second-team All-American by the Walter Camp Football Foundation, Associated Press, USA TODAY and Athlon Sports. The 2013 Smith-Brown Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year ranks second on the defense in tackles for loss (14 for 75 yards) and production points (238). Calhoun, a first-team All-Big Ten selection by the coaches and media, also ranks second (tied) in the NCAA FBS with four fumble recoveries, which is tied for fifth most in an MSU single-season. He has produced a tackle for loss in 10 of his last 12 games while ranking fifth in the Big Ten in sacks and eighth in tackles for loss. Calhoun was named one of six finalists for the Ted Hendricks Award, which is given annually to the nation’s top defensive end. In addition, he was named to CollegeFootballNews.com’s All-Sophomore Team (first team). He also was added to the Paul Hornung Award Watch List after Week 3 (nation’s most versatile player). The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Calhoun totaled four tackles, including half a sack (3 yards), two QB hits and a QB hurry in Michigan State’s victory over No. 2 Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game.

In his last appearance in Spartan Stadium, Bullough recorded nine tackles, including a 2-yard loss, as Michigan State completed its first-ever 8-0 Big Ten season with a 14-3 victory over Minnesota. He also compiled nine tackles in the win at Nebraska on Nov. 16. Bullough was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week after recording a season-high 10 tackles in Michigan State’s 14-0 win over Purdue, with two resulting in losses including a 7-yard sack that produced a fumble that senior Denicos Allen recovered and returned 45 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. Bullough reached double-figure tackles for the seventh time in his career. Bullough has led the Spartans in tackles the previous two seasons (89 in 2011; career-high 111 in 2012). He was re-elected as team captain and is just the third Spartan to be named a captain at least twice in the Dantonio era (Greg Jones, 2009-10; Kirk Cousins, 2009-11). The Traverse City, Mich., native has 299 career tackles in 53 games, including a team-high 40 consecutive starts. He ranks 11th in MSU history with 30.5 tackles for loss (103 yards) in his career, including 8.0 sacks (51 yards), and ranks 18th in the school record book in tackles (299). Bullough also has 11 passes defended (three interceptions, eight pass break-ups) and four forced fumbles. Bullough is also the eighth player in program history to earn multiple Academic All-America honors. The finance major, who owns a 3.56 grade-point average, garnered first-team honors this year after landing on the second team last season. ALL-AMERICAN MIKE SADLER: A VALUABLE WEAPON ON SPECIAL TEAMS – Junior punter Mike Sadler, a Ray Guy Award semifinalist, was named first-team All-American by ESPN. com and CBSSports.com. A first-team All-Big Ten selection by the coaches for a second-straight year, Sadler becomes the fourth Spartan punter in school history to earn multiple first-team all-conference honors (Brandon Fields, Greg Montgomery and Ray Stachowicz). Sadler has been a valuable weapon on special teams for the Spartans, as he ranks fourth in the Big Ten and 40th in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision in punting with his 42.3-yard average. He leads the FBS with 22 punts downed inside the 10-yard line (31 percent) and ranks third with 30 inside the 20 (43 percent). Sadler also has had eight punts downed inside the 5, including three at the 1-yard line. In addition, he has 14 punts of 50-plus yards and opponents have collected just 116 punt return yards against the Spartans through 13 games. Sadler averaged 40.6 yards on seven punts, including four kicks placed inside the 10-yard line, in Michigan State’s 41-28 win at Nebraska. His 56-yard punt in the first quarter was fumbled away to the Spartans at the Nebraska 8 and led to MSU’s first touchdown. His 35-yard punt in the third quarter was downed by Kurtis Drummond at the Nebraska 1, and Tommy Armstrong Jr. fumbled on the next play, setting up another MSU touchdown. Midway through the fourth quarter, Sadler ran 3 yards on a fake field goal for a first down to set up Connor Cook’s 27-yard touchdown pass to Keith Mumphery.

“The thing to talk about here is the defense - I thought they played extremely well. We need to dwell on those positives and build on them. We need to always play to our strengths, period. I’ll go back to what I said, the name of the game is to win. We’ve got to do this collectively, together. Am I totally happy, no, but I’ll go home with a win.” - MSU head coach Mark Dantonio

KEY NOTE

• Michigan State extended its winning streak in home openers to 15.

RECAP

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Jeremy Langford’s 2-yard touchdown run late in the first half broke a tie and he finished with a career-high 94 yards rushing, helping Michigan State beat Western Michigan 26-13. The Spartans scored two touchdowns on defense. Jairus Jones had two interceptions, the first of which turned into a score with his lateral to Kurtis Drummond, whose 21-yard return was the game’s first score midway through the first quarter. The Broncos tied the game with 6:14 left in the second quarter, but couldn’t do enough on offense to keep the game close in coach P.J. Fleck’s debut with the Mid-American Conference team. Langford’s go-ahead TD was followed up by two field goals in the third quarter and Shilique Calhoun’s fumble return with 9:02 left to play that made it 26-7.

WHAT HAPPENED

SCORING SUMMARY

• For the second consecutive game, Michigan State’s defense dominated its opponent, scoring two touchdowns and limiting South Florida to just 155 yards of total offense, including only 66 passing yards.

KEY STAT

• Michigan State forced USF to eight three-and-out possessions and limited the Bulls to just 2.5 yards per offensive play.

KEY PLAY

• With MSU leading 7-6 midway through the third quarter and South Florida driving in Spartan territory on second-and-15 from the MSU 39, Denicos Allen hit USF quarterback Bobby Eveld as he was throwing, forcing the ball up in the air; Shilique Calhoun picked off the pass for his first career interception, and ran it back 56 yards for the touchdown, giving MSU a 14-6 advantage.

QUOTABLE

“Through camp we discussed being able to score on defense. Even if our offense is good, even if they are doing great, we just wanted to make that another aspect of our game to be able to score on defense. Being able to create touchdowns, we were very excited for the challenge and we were looking forward to it. To see it all play out after all that practice is mind blowing; it is a great feeling definitely.” - MSU defensive end Shilique Calhoun, after scoring two TDs vs. USF

KEY NOTE

• Shilique Calhoun became the first Spartan defensive player to score three touchdowns in one season since T.J. Turner in 1999.

RECAP

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Shilique Calhoun scored on a fumble return and an interception return, enabling Michigan State to a 21-6 victory over South Florida.

WHAT HAPPENED

SCORING SUMMARY

• Although being outgained and outrushed, Notre Dame held off Michigan State, 17-13, to record its third consecutive win in the series.

KEY STAT

• Michigan State, which entered the game No. 1 in the FBS in total defense, allowed just 224 total yards of offense to the Irish, the fewest in the Brian Kelly era at Notre Dame; it was the fewest total yards by Notre Dame since it had just 91 in a loss to USC on Nov. 29, 2008.

KEY PLAY

• With the score tied at 10, Notre Dame faced a third-and-10 from the MSU 22 yardline on the first play of the fourth quarter. The Spartans were flagged for their fourth pass interference of the game on the play, setting up first-and-goal for UND. Two plays later, Cam McDaniel scored on a 7-yard TD run to put Notre Dame up for good, 17-10.

QUOTABLE

“Great football game, first of all. I thought very well played football game in terms of intensity and enthusiasm. As far as Michigan State is concerned, get down in the red zone, you’ve got to score touchdowns. Fact of the matter is they did not turn the ball over and we had to come up with turnovers. We ran the ball effectively. Had our opportunities in the red zone. Kicked a couple field goals, missed one. You’ve got to score touchdowns in those situations.” - MSU head coach Mark Dantonio

KEY NOTE

• Ten of the last 10 meetings between Michigan State and Notre Dame have been decided by seven points or less.

RECAP

NOTRE DAME, Ind. (AP) - Notre Dame took advantage of a trick play that backfired, as well as four pass interference calls and a holding penalty that kept drives alive, to defeat Michigan State for the third straight time. The mistakes led to all of Notre Dame’s points in the 17-13 victory, including two on the game-winning drive after a pass by Michigan State receiver R.J. Shelton led to an interception by safety Matthias Farley, setting up the go-ahead touchdown.

SCORING SUMMARY

• Down 14-10 at halftime, Michigan State rallied in the second half, outscoring Iowa 16-0 in the final two quarters to win its Big Ten opener, 26-14.

KEY STAT

• On 14 Iowa possessions, MSU’s defense forced 10 three-and-outs (three-and-out: either holding an opponent without a first down within three plays on a new series or forcing a turnover in the first three plays). The Hawkeyes were held to just 23 yards rushing.

KEY PLAY

• On Michigan State’s first drive of the third quarter, trailing 14-10, Connor Cook threw a 37-yard touchdown pass to Bennie Fowler that put the Spartans ahead for good.

QUOTABLE

“We’ve been thinking about our last game, how to strengthen ourselves, re-evaluating ourselves as a football team and we came out and played. We kept talking about how you’re going to have adversity here and basically have to just flood the gates. We were tough to run the ball against, maybe that was an understatement, and we came up with two big turnovers at the right times. Just a solid team win.” - MSU head coach Mark Dantonio

KEY NOTE

• Michigan State’s 26-14 win over Iowa gave the Spartans back-to-back victories in Iowa City for the first time since 1987 and 1989. MSU snapped a seven-game losing streak in Iowa City with a 37-21 victory in 2011.

RECAP

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Connor Cook threw for a career-high 277 yards and two touchdowns and Michigan State opened Big Ten play with a 26-14 win over Iowa. Darqueze Dennard had a pair of interceptions for the Spartans, who held the Hawkeyes scoreless in the second half. Freshman Michael Geiger added three field goals in the second half for the Spartans. Mark Weisman ran for just nine yards on seven carries for the Hawkeyes, who lost for the first time since its season opener. Michigan State was again led by its standout defense. But the Spartans also came up huge on special teams. Up 6 early in the fourth quarter, Michigan State pulled off a crucial fake punt. Mike Sadler ran for 25 yards, setting up a 49-yard field goal by Geiger that put the Spartans up 23-14 with 13:28 left. Jake Rudock threw for 241 yards and two touchdowns for the Hawkeyes. But Dennard picked him off twice, including an interception with 5:09 left that largely ended the suspense.

We felt like that’s what it was going to be - you are going to be challenged (playing against Indiana’s up-tempo offense), you were going to have adversity, you’re going to be pushed to the brink. I think overall it’s a good team win for us. We’re 5-1 and we can set the tone for the next phase. We’re halfway through the season. Now we start playing for things.” - MSU head coach Mark Dantonio

KEY NOTE

• Spartan Stadium played host to its 500th game, as Michigan State improved its all-time home record to 340-147-13 (.693) in 90 seasons. The Spartans also retained the Old Brass Spittoon, as MSU defeated Indiana for the fifth-straight time.

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Jeremy Langford scored four touchdowns, and Michigan State recovered from an early defensive breakdown to beat Indiana 42-28. The Spartans prevailed in a matchup between their top-ranked defense and Indiana’s fast-paced offense. Tevin Coleman scored on a 64-yard run for the Hoosiers just 61 seconds into the game, but Michigan State took control shortly after halftime. Langford tied it early in the second quarter, catching an 11-yard touchdown pass from Connor Cook on third down. He later added three more TDs on the ground, becoming the first Michigan State player to score four in a game since Edwin Baker in 2010 against Minnesota.

“We knew it was on us. We told each other it was on us. If they don’t score, we win. It was as simple as that. We had no choice but to step it up. Last year in the close games, we would sometimes give up touchdowns at the end of the game. We didn’t want to do that this year. It’s a new year. It’s a new team and we needed to make changes. That was the main change we wanted to make this year.” - MSU fifth-year senior linebacker Denicos Allen

KEY NOTE

• Michigan State shut out Purdue for just the fourth time in series history and for the first time since 1963.

RECAP

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Denicos Allen returned a fumble 45 yards for a touchdown, and Michigan State’s offense finally added an insurance score in the fourth quarter of a 14-0 win over Purdue. The Spartans didn’t make it past the Purdue 32-yard line until the fourth, when receiver Tony Lippett threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Andrew Gleichert on a trick play. Purdue kept it close after being routed by Wisconsin and Nebraska in its first two conference games, but Paul Griggs missed two field goals. The Spartans entered with the nation’s top-ranked defense, and Allen opened the scoring in the second quarter with Michigan State’s fifth defensive touchdown of the season. Max Bullough hit quarterback Danny Etling, the ball popped free, and Allen was able to scoop it up and score easily. Jeremy Langford had career highs with 131 yards on 24 carries for Michigan State. While the Spartans were sputtering offensively, punter Mike Sadler gave them a lift, landing three punts inside the 10-yard line.

RECAP

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Mark Dantonio has always embraced Michigan State’s rivalry with Michigan, but this week the confident coach took a fairly calm approach. Dantonio’s Spartans battered their biggest rivals for the full 60 minutes Saturday, and 24th-ranked Michigan State remained unbeaten in the Big Ten with a 29-6 victory over the 23rd-ranked Wolverines. Michigan was sacked seven times and finished with minus-48 yards rushing, the worst output in the Ann Arbor program’s lengthy history. Connor Cook threw for a touchdown and ran for one, but this game belonged to Michigan State’s defense, which solidified its spot among the nation’s best with an overwhelming performance on a rainy afternoon at Spartan Stadium. Shilique Calhoun and Ed Davis had 2 1/2 sacks each, and Denicos Allen added two more.

Don’t worry about all the things that are being said, just keep your mouth shut, get ready to play, start the game and finish stronger than when you started. We were going to let the lion out of the cage at 3:30 and that’s what happened. We got stronger as the game continued.” - MSU head coach Mark Dantonio

• Michigan State held Michigan without a touchdown for the second consecutive season.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Michigan State all but locked up a spot in the Big Ten Championship Game, and the Spartans didn’t even need their nation-leading defense at its best to do it. With Nebraska turning over the ball five times and Connor Cook directing a gamebreaking drive in the fourth quarter, the Spartans won 41-28 to take a two-game lead in the Legends Division with two games to play. Jeremy Langford ran 32 times for 151 yards and scored two touchdowns, and Keith Mumphery caught a 27-yard touchdown from Cook after the Cornhuskers pulled within six points.

• With Michigan State leading 7-3 late in the second quarter, the Spartans had the ball on their own 13-yard line. On third-and-5, Connor Cook found Bennie Fowler down the sideline, who tipped the ball to himself as he slid past two Northwestern defenders, and raced to the end zone for an 87-yard touchdown. It tied for the fourth-longest reception in school history.

“I want to congratulate our football team. Ten wins. Legends [Division] champions and as we go forward it’s exciting times. We’ve talked about there being moments that we’d remember for the rest of our lives and I think that’s what is happening for us so we just need to continue and press on...Very happy for our program and everybody associated with it. Like I said, we got a hat on. Hopefully we want to wear this hat for a couple of weeks and we’ll trade it in, but we will see. That’s what makes things so special.” - MSU head coach Mark Dantonio

WHAT HAPPENED

SCORING SUMMARY

• Michigan State completed its third perfect Big Ten regular season in program history and the first since the conference expanded to eight games with a 14-3 victory over Minnesota on Senior Day. The 18-member senior class, the winningest in school history, closed their careers with a 23-5 (.821) mark at Spartan Stadium.

KEY STAT

• With an 11-point victory, Michigan State became the first Big Ten team to win all eight of its conference games by double-digit points since the league went to an eight-game schedule in 1971.

KEY PLAY

• With Michigan State leading 14-3 in the fourth quarter, Minnesota drove the ball 77 yards on 17 plays in 9:21 to the Spartan 11-yard line; on third-and-10, Gopher quarterback Mitch Leidner was sacked by Shilique Calhoun and Tyler Hoover popped the ball loose, and Denzel Drone recovered the fumble for MSU at the 14-yard line, ending Minnesota’s scoring threat.

QUOTABLE

“We’ve been here before, we’ve won 11 games before. It feels good. I don’t think there’s any question it feels very good. You feel like you’ve attained a goal. But at the same time, you’re right, nobody’s giving anyone Gatorade showers. We’ve got one more to go. That’s what we want to do. Those are our goals.” - MSU head coach Mark Dantonio

KEY NOTE

• Jeremy Langford rattled off a career-long 44-yard rush late in the fourth quarter to push him past the 100-yard mark for the seventh game in a row, which tied a school record along with Lorenzo White, who accomplished the feat in 1985.

RECAP

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Jeremy Langford ran for 134 yards and a touchdown, and No. 11 Michigan State wrapped up an unbeaten regular season in Big Ten play with a 14-3 victory over Minnesota. The Spartans’ top-ranked defense forced three turnovers and kept the Golden Gophers out of the end zone, repeating a formula that has brought Michigan State within a win of the Rose Bowl. The Spartans went undefeated at home for the third time in four years. They took the lead right away Saturday on Langford’s 15-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, which capped a seven-play, 80-yard drive. Minnesota’s Philip Nelson attempted only seven passes in the first half, and two of them were picked off by Michigan State’s Trae Waynes.

WHAT HAPPENED

SCORING SUMMARY

• Michigan State snapped Ohio State’s school-record 24-game winning streak and defeated the Buckeyes, 34-24, to win the program’s eighth Big Ten Championship and seal its first trip to the Rose Bowl since 1988.

KEY STAT

• Ohio State entered the game ranked in the FBS Top 10 in scoring offense and total offense, but the Spartans held the Buckeyes to season lows in points (24) and total yards (374). The Buckeyes were 1-of-10 on third-down conversions and 0-of-2 on fourth down.

KEY PLAY

• With Michigan State leading 27-24 midway through the fourth quarter, Ohio State deflected a punt, and took over at the MSU 47-yard line. After three rushes for 8 yards, the Buckeyes faced a fourth-and-2 at the MSU 39-yard line and called timeout. On the fourth-down play, Denicos Allen stopped OSU quarterback Braxton Miller 1-yard short of the first down, and MSU took over on downs. The Spartans iced the game with a 6-play, 61-yard drive in three minutes and 33 seconds, capped off by Jeremy Langford’s 26-yard TD run up the middle.

“We’re going to live this one for a while, live it for a month. But it’s important that we finish what we started and that will end with a bowl game.” - MSU head coach Mark Dantonio

KEY NOTE

• Michigan State won its school-record 12th game of the season (11 wins in 2010 and 2011).

RECAP

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Connor Cook was determined to shake things up in the Big Ten title game. By the end of the night, the sophomore quarterback’s teammates were bouncing up and down right along with him. No. 10 Michigan State rallied from a seven-point third-quarter deficit by scoring the final 17 points to upset No. 2 Ohio State 34-24 and deny the Buckeyes a chance to play for the BCS National Championship. It was a game that almost defied logic. Ohio State came into the game with the nation’s longest winning streak (24), had not lost under Meyer in two seasons and had one of the nation’s most productive offenses and underrated defenses. Michigan State turned the conventional wisdom upside down by scoring the first 17 points. Then the nation’s stingiest defense gave up the next 24 points as Braxton Miller, Carlos Hyde & Co. took command. Cook responded to the challenge by driving the Spartans for a field goal, hooking up with the wide open Josiah Price in the flat of the end zone and then burned 3 1/2 critical minutes on the clinching drive, capped by Jeremy Langford’s sealing 26-yard TD run.

100TH ROSE BOWL GAME • MICHIGAN STATE VS. STANFORD

COACHING STAFF MARK DANTONIO HEAD COACH SEVENTH SEASON @DANTONIOMARK

Mark Dantonio, who is in his seventh season as head coach at Michigan State, has restored the pride and tradition of Spartan football while transforming the program into an annual Big Ten Championship contender. A Zanesville, Ohio, native with Midwest ties, Dantonio has led Michigan State this season to a school-record 12 victories, the Big Ten Championship, and a trip to the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1988. After leading the Spartans to their second Big Ten Legends Division title in three years, Dantonio guided MSU past previously undefeated and second-ranked Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game, 34-24, to win the school’s eighth Big Ten Championship and clinch the first BCS Bowl bid in program history. Bowl eligible for a school-record seventh consecutive season, the Spartans finished fourth in the final Bowl Championship Series standings, marking the highest BCS ranking in school history. Dantonio has 33 years of collegiate coaching experience and will be coaching in his 18th bowl game as the Spartans take on Stanford in the 2014 Rose Bowl. Michigan State defeated TCU in the 2012 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl in Tempe, Ariz., as the Spartans won backto-back bowl games for the first time since 1989-90. Michigan State defeated No. 18 Georgia in the 2012 Outback Bowl in triple overtime, 33-30. Dantonio has previously participated in three New Year’s Day games as a head coach (2009 Capital One Bowl, 2011 Capital One Bowl, 2012 Outback Bowl). Dantonio earned 2013 Big Ten Coach of the Year honors from both the media and coaches, as the Spartans finished their conference schedule with a perfect 8-0 record for the first time in school history. Michigan State became the 14th Big Ten team to post an 8-0 mark in league play (Ohio State 2013, Ohio State 2006, Ohio State 2002, Iowa 2002, Michigan 1997, Northwestern 1995, Penn State 1994, Michigan 1989, Illinois 1983 [9 games], Michigan 1980, Ohio State 1979, Ohio State 1975, Michigan 1971). The Spartans are the first Big Ten team to win all eight of their conference games by double-digit points since the league went to an eightgame schedule in 1971. In addition, MSU became the first undefeated Big Ten team to win all of its league games by double-figure points since Michigan in 1943 (6-0 record). Dantonio also was named a finalist for the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year, Paul “Bear” Bryant Coach of the Year, Bobby Bowden Coach of the Year and Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year. In addition, he was named one of 16 semifinalists for the Maxwell Football Club Coach of the Year and was tabbed Big Ten Coach of the Year by Sporting News and CollegeFootballNews.com. Michigan State features the top-ranked defense in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision, ranking No. 1 in FBS in total defense (248.2 yards per game), rushing defense (80.8 ypg.) and opponent third-down conversions (.277; 53-for-191). The Spartans have been ranked

No. 1 in the nation in total defense for 13 consecutive weeks.

least 10 Big Ten games, Dantonio owns the best winning percentage (.679, 38-18 record).

MSU also ranks among the national leaders in pass efficiency defense (second with 91.5 rating), first downs defense (fourth at 14.5 pg.), scoring defense (fourth at 12.7 ppg.) and passing defense (sixth at 167.4 ypg.). The Spartans lead the Big Ten in nine defensive categories (total defense, scoring defense, rushing defense, pass defense, pass efficiency defense, turnover margin, opponent third-down conversions, opponent fourthdown conversions, first downs defense).

Michigan State was rewarded for winning the Legends Division by three games, as six Spartans were named to the All-Big Ten First Team and a total of 16 players received all-conference recognition. The six first-team selections were the most for Michigan State since 1990, and the 16 honorees overall equal the second most under Dantonio (19 in 2011, 16 in 2010). Two Spartans took home individual awards, as senior Darqueze Dennard was named the Tatum-Woodson Big Ten Defensive Back of the Year, while sophomore Shilique Calhoun was named the Smith-Brown Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year. Dennard, Calhoun and senior linebacker Max Bullough were first-team selections by both the coaches and media. Junior safety Kurtis Drummond, senior safety Isaiah Lewis and junior punter Mike Sadler were named first-team All-Big Ten by the coaches. The five first-team selections on defense are tied for the most in school history (1966). Since 2007, Dantonio has helped produce 26 first-team All-Big Ten selections.

Offensively, the Spartans ranked among the Big Ten leaders in conference games in passing efficiency (third with 139.5 rating), scoring offense (fifth with 29.8 ppg.) and rushing offense (fifth with 185.8 ypg.). The offensive line has allowed just 13 sacks - the second fewest in the Big Ten and 11th fewest in the FBS. In addition, Michigan State ranks fifth in the FBS in time of possession (33:28 per game). Another key reason for MSU’s success this season has been creating turnovers on defense and limiting mistakes on offense, as Michigan State ranks first in the Big Ten and seventh in the FBS in turnover margin (+14, 1.1 per game). The Spartans have forced a total of 27 turnovers (11 fumbles, 16 interceptions), including five for touchdowns (three fumble recoveries, two interception returns). MSU has forced the most turnovers in the Big Ten (27) and has also turned the ball over the least amount of times (13) in the conference. MSU’s six interceptions are also a conference low and are tied for 10th fewest in the FBS. Dantonio owns a 63-29 (.685) record at Michigan State, which already ranks among MSU’s all-time leaders in career wins (fourth) and winning percentage (fifth). He is the only coach in MSU history to lead multiple teams to double-digit win seasons (11 in 2010 and 2011; 12 in 2013). Among Spartan coaches who have coached at

Michigan State has defeated five bowl-bound teams in 2013, including victories over Iowa, Michigan, Nebraska, Minnesota and Ohio State. The Spartans snapped Ohio State’s school-record 24-game winning streak in the Big Ten Championship. The Spartans have won 41 of their last 53 games (.774), dating back to the beginning of the 2010 season. The 41 wins are most in the Big Ten and tied for ninth most in the FBS during that same time period. In addition, MSU has recorded 35 Big Ten victories since 2008, the most of any team in the conference (Note: Ohio State has won 40 games, but had to vacate seven victories following the 2010 season.).The Spartans produced backto-back 11-win seasons in 2010-11 for the first time in program history, claimed a share of the Big Ten Championship in 2010, and have won two Big Ten Legends Division titles (2011, 2013). Dantonio has led Michigan

COACHING STAFF State to Top 25 finishes in three of the last five seasons (2008: No. 24 both polls; 2010: No. 14 both polls; and 2011: No. 10 USA TODAY/No. 11 AP). Since 2007, Dantonio has helped produce five consensus first-team All-Americans (2008: RB Javon Ringer; 2009-10: LB Greg Jones; 2011: DT Jerel Worthy; and 2013: CB Darqueze Dennard) and 16 NFL Draft picks, including six in 2012. From his first day on the job, Dantonio has pledged to support student-athletes as they pursue excellence, both in the classroom and on the playing field. In his first six seasons, more than 80 percent (86 of 106) of his Michigan State players who have completed their eligibility have earned their undergraduate degrees. In addition, 87 Spartans have earned Academic All-Big Ten honors, including six Academic All-Americans (Blair White, 2009 second team; Mike Sadler, 2013 first team, 2012 second team, 2011 second team; Max Bullough, 2013 first team, 2012 second team). Under Dantonio, Michigan State has produced a 38-11 record (.776) in home games, including a 15-game winning streak (7-0 in 2010, 7-0 in 2011, won first game in 2012). The Spartans have won 23 of their last 28 home games. Michigan State secured its third-straight winning campaign (7-6) in 2012 with a thrilling 13-point second-half comeback victory over TCU in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, defeating the Horned Frogs, 17-16. A total of 11 Spartans received All-Big Ten recognition last in 2012, including junior running back Le’Veon Bell, who garnered consensus first-team honors after leading the Big Ten and ranking No. 3 in the NCAA FBS in rushing with 137.9 yards per game. Known as one of the top defensive minds in the country, Dantonio and his staff assembled the No. 1 defense in the Big Ten for the second-straight season in 2012. The Spartan defense ranked among the NCAA FBS Top 10 in eight categories: touchdowns allowed (second with 16), pass efficiency defense (third at 98.8), total defense (fourth at 274.4 ypg.), pass break-ups (tied for eighth at 4.8 pg.), rushing defense (eighth at 98.6 ypg.), third-down defense (eighth at .305), pass defense (ninth at 175.8 ypg.) and scoring defense (ninth at 16.3 ppg.). In 2011, thanks to its 33-30 triple-overtime victory over Georgia in the 2012 Outback Bowl, Michigan State (113) finished No. 10 in the final USA TODAY Coaches Poll and No. 11 in the final Associated Press Poll. It marked MSU’s third Top 10 finish in the history of the USA TODAY Coaches Poll and its first since 1999 (No. 7 with a 10-2 record). Michigan State’s 11 wins in 2011 tied a then-school single-season record, as the Spartans became bowl eligible for a school-record fifth consecutive year. MSU won the Big Ten Legends Division title outright with a 7-1 conference record. The Spartans came up just short of their first Rose Bowl appearance since 1988, falling to Wisconsin, 42-39, in the inaugural Big Ten Championship Game. Michigan State defeated five bowl-bound teams, including a victory over the Badgers earlier in the season on Oct. 22 in Spartan Stadium, 37-31, on a last-second, 44-yard touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins to Keith Nichol. MSU also beat No. 11 Michigan for the fourth-

straight year on Oct. 15 in Spartan Stadium, 28-14, a first for the program since 1959-62. Other landmark victories included a 10-7 win at Ohio State on Oct. 1, MSU’s first win in Ohio Stadium since 1998, and a 3721 victory at Iowa on Nov. 12, the Spartans’ first triumph in Kinnick Stadium since 1989. Following the successful 2011 campaign, six Spartans were selected in the 2012 NFL Draft, the most since 2000: Worthy (Green Bay Packers, second round), Cousins (Washington Redskins, fourth round), Keshawn Martin (Houston Texans, fourth round), Trenton Robinson (San Francisco 49ers, sixth round), Cunningham (Miami Dolphins, sixth round) and Edwin Baker (San Diego, seventh round). Dantonio, who led Michigan State to a then schoolrecord 11 wins in 2010 and a share of its first Big Ten Championship since 1990, was named the Dave McClain Big Ten Coach of the Year, as selected by the conference’s media panel. A finalist for the Paul “Bear” Bryant, Eddie Robinson and Liberty Mutual National Coach of the Year Awards, Dantonio helped manage the thirdbiggest turnaround among NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision teams during the regular season, as the Spartans improved from 6-7 in 2009 to 11-1 in 2010. He was also named the AFCA (American Football Coaches Association) Region 3 Coach of the Year, and earned National Coach of the Year honors from CBSSports.com, Scout. com and Rivals.com. Thanks to its 28-22 victory at Penn State in the regularseason finale, Michigan State recorded its first win in State College since 1965 and finished in a tie with Wisconsin for the 2010 Big Ten Championship. MSU also dealt Wisconsin its only loss of the 2010 regular season, 34-24, in the Big Ten opener. The Spartans finished the season ranked No. 14 in both The Associated Press and USA TODAY/ Coaches’ Polls. One of 15 semifinalists for the George Munger Coach of the Year Award, Dantonio had a breakthrough season as a head coach in 2008. Under his leadership, the Spartans went 9-3 in the regular season and compiled a 6-2 record in the Big Ten, the best league mark for the program since 1999. In his first season as head coach at Michigan State, Dantonio sparked a three-game turnaround as the Spartans finished the 2007 regular season with a 7-5 record, securing the program’s first bowl bid in four years with a berth against Boston College in the Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando, Fla. The 57-year old Dantonio established himself as one of the nation’s up-and-coming coaches during his threeyear tenure at Cincinnati, where he compiled an 18-17 overall record and led the program in its transition from Conference USA to the BIG EAST Conference. Prior to his appointment at Cincinnati, Dantonio served as the defensive coordinator under Jim Tressel at Ohio State for three seasons, where his defensive unit helped the Buckeyes to a combined record of 32-6. Dantonio assembled the defense which led Ohio State to the 2002 National Championship. Dantonio spent six years (1995-2000) as Michigan State’s secondary coach, including five seasons under Saban and one under Bobby Williams. For Dantonio’s complete bio, please visit msuspartans. com.

COACHING STAFF

PAT NARDUZZI ASSISTANT HEAD COACH/ DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR SEVENTH SEASON

Now in his seventh season as Michigan State’s defensive coordinator, Pat Narduzzi has developed the Spartans into one of the top defensive teams in the nation. Narduzzi was promoted to assistant head coach on March 4, 2013.

Now in his seventh season at Michigan State, Dave Warner was promoted to co-offensive coordinator on March 4, 2013. He also coaches the running backs. Warner previously coached the quarterbacks for six seasons.

Narduzzi has helped construct the No. 1 defense in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision this season. Through 13 games, Michigan State’s defense ranks No. 1 in the FBS in total defense (248.2 yards per game), rushing defense (80.8 ypg.) and opponent third-down conversions (.277). MSU has been ranked No. 1 in the nation in total defense for 13 consecutive weeks. The Spartans also rank among the national leaders in pass efficiency defense (second with 91.5 rating), first downs defense (fourth at 14.5 pg.), scoring defense (fourth at 12.7 ppg.) and passing defense (sixth at 167.4 ypg.).

The Spartan offense has steadily improved all season long, culminating with a strong performance in the Big Ten Championship Game as Michigan State compiled 438 yards of total offense and 34 points against No. 2 Ohio State. First-year starting quarterback Connor Cook, a second-team All-Big Ten selection by the coaches, has won 11 of his first 12 games under center and was named the Most Valuable Player in the Big Ten Championship Game after throwing for a career-high 304 yards and three touchdowns.

Narduzzi was named the winner of the 2013 Frank Broyles Award, which is awarded annually to the nation’s top assistant coach. He is the first MSU coach to win the award, which started in 1996. The Spartans are one of just four NCAA FBS schools, along with Alabama, Florida State, and Florida, to rank among the Top 10 nationally in total defense the past three seasons (No. 4 in 2012, No. 6 in 2011).

In his first year working with Jeremy Langford, Warner has helped developed the junior into one of the top running backs in the Big Ten. Langford, who hadn’t started a game entering the season, has emerged as a dynamic scoring threat, as he leads the Big Ten with 17 rushing touchdowns. The Wayne, Mich., native ranks first on the team with 1,338 rushing yards and has rushed for more than 100 yards in a school-record eight consecutive games.

MSU’s defense has allowed just 3.94 yards per play and 2.70 yards per rushing attempt, both of which rank No. 1 in the FBS.

MSU’s offense also features a balanced passing attack. The Spartans are one of only two teams in the Big Ten to have seven players with at least 16 receptions, and nine different players have caught touchdown passes this season.

Michigan State has held six opponents without scoring a touchdown (South Florida, Purdue, Illinois, Michigan, Northwestern, Minnesota), and the Spartans shut out six of their eight Big Ten opponents in the second half. Through 13 games in 2013, the Spartans have allowed 19 touchdowns (seven rushing, 12 passing), tied for fourth fewest in the FBS.

The offensive line, which rotates in eight different players, has been one of the top units in the country this season and is a key reason why MSU ranks fifth in the FBS in time of possession (33:38). In addition to a strong running game, the Spartans have only allowed 13 sacks, second fewest in the Big Ten and tied for 13th fewest in the FBS.

The Spartans feature five first-team All-Big Ten selections on defense, which is tied for the most in school history (1966). Bullough, sophomore defensive end Shilique Calhoun, senior cornerback Darqueze Dennard, junior safety Kurtis Drummond and senior safety Isaiah Lewis all garnered first-team accolades from the league’s coaches, while Bullough, Calhoun and Dennard were also on the media’s first team. Eight of MSU’s starters received All-Big Ten recognition (second team: senior linebacker Denicos Allen; honorable mention: junior defensive end Marcus Rush, sophomore cornerback Trae Waynes).

Six starters earned All-Big Ten recognition on the offense, including Cook (second team, coaches), senior offensive guard Blake Treadwell (second team, coaches and media), sophomore center Jack Allen (second team, media), senior offensive tackle Fou Fonoti (honorable mention), senior offensive guard Dan France (honorable mention) and Langford (honorable mention).

Calhoun was named the Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year, while Dennard was named the Big Ten Defensive Back of the Year. Dennard also won the Jim Thorpe Award (nation’s best defensive back) and Jack Tatum Award (nation’s top defensive back by The Touchdown Club of Columbus), and was one of five finalists for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy (nation’s best defensive player). Narduzzi has been named the National Coordinator of the Week four times in his career three for his game plans in wins over Michigan (2010, 2011, 2013), including this season, when the Wolverines were sacked seven times and were held to a school-record low minus-48 yards rushing, and also for his role in helping MSU defeat Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game. The Spartans held the previously undefeated and second-ranked Buckeyes to a season-low 374 yards of total offense and 24 points. During Narduzzi’s tenure at MSU, his players have earned All-Big Ten honors 56 times, including 11 different first-team selections. For the second straight year, Michigan State featured the best defense in the Big Ten in 2012. The Spartans ranked among the NCAA FBS Top 10 in eight categories: touchdowns allowed (second with 16), pass efficiency defense (third at 98.8), total defense (fourth at 274.4 ypg.), pass break-ups (tied for eighth at 4.8 pg.), rushing defense (eighth at 98.6 ypg.), third-down defense (eighth at .305), pass defense (ninth at 175.8 ypg.) and scoring defense (ninth at 16.3 ppg.). In addition, MSU also led the Big Ten in six defensive categories (touchdowns allowed, total defense, scoring defense, pass efficiency defense, rushing defense and thirddown defense).

100TH ROSE BOWL GAME • MICHIGAN STATE VS. STANFORD

COACHING STAFF Jim Bollman, who has 36 years of coaching experience, both at the collegiate and professional levels, including 11 years as the offensive coordinator/offensive line coach at Ohio State (2001-11), was named co-offensive coordinator on March 4, 2013. He also coaches the tight ends.

Harlon Barnett, a four-year letterwinner at Michigan State (1986-89) as a defensive back who was named a captain and All-American as a senior, is in his seventh season as the Spartans’ secondary coach. Barnett returned to East Lansing with seven years of professional playing experience and nine seasons of coaching experience under his belt.

Bollman will be coaching in his ninth BCS Bowl and 18th postseason game overall as the Spartans take on No. 5 Stanford in the 2014 Rose Bowl. He was the offensive coordinator for the Buckeyes during their 2002 National Championship season and has coached in three BCS National Championship Games. Under the tutelage of Bollman, the Spartan tight ends have shown tremendous growth during the 2013 season. The entire group had a combined five starts entering the season, but the trio of red-shirt freshman Josiah Price and juniors Michael Dennis and Andrew Gleichert all have contributed with multiple starts in helping create the position into a strength for the offense. Price has caught 16 passes for 201 yards and ranks second on the team with four touchdown receptions. JIM BOLLMAN CO-OFFENSIVECOORDINATOR/ TIGHT ENDS FIRST SEASON

A former offensive line coach at Michigan State, Bollman also has been instrumental in developing one of the top offensive lines in the country. All five starters have received postseason recognition and the group has given up just 13 sacks, which is second fewest in the Big Ten. Bollman and Dantonio have coached together before on three previous occasions: Youngstown State (1986-90), Michigan State (1995-97) and Ohio State (2001-03). Bollman was the offensive line coach for three seasons (1995-97) at MSU under Nick Saban while Dantonio was the secondary coach. Dantonio and Bollman both arrived at Ohio State for the 2001 season. Dantonio spent three years (2001-03) as the defensive coordinator under Jim Tressel, while Bollman went on to coach 11 years (2001-11) for the Buckeyes, both as an offensive line coach and offensive coordinator. Dantonio and Bollman first coached together at Youngstown State for four seasons (1986-90). The Buckeyes compiled a 100-28 overall record (.781) during Bollman’s tenure as offensive coordinator from 2001-11 (Ohio State had to vacate 12 wins from the 2010 season). The Buckeyes achieved seven 10-win (or more) seasons during that stretch, and he coached in 11 bowl games, including eight BCS games (2003 BCS National Championship, 2004 Fiesta, 2006 Fiesta, 2007 BCS National Championship, 2008 BCS National Championship, 2009 Fiesta, 2010 Rose, 2011 Sugar). Under Bollman’s offensive direction at Ohio State, his players earned first-team All-Big Ten honors 23 times, including quarterback Troy Smith, who captured the 2006 Heisman Trophy and also earned the Walter Camp Award, Davey O’Brien Award, AP Player of the Year, Sporting News Player of the Year and Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year his senior season.

THE BOLLMAN FILE

HARLON BARNETT SECONDARY SEVENTH SEASON

Barnett has mentored one of the top secondaries in the nation the past three seasons, as the Spartans are one of just two NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision Schools, along with Alabama, to rank among the nation’s top 15 in pass defense in 2011 (ninth at 175.8 ypg.), 2012 (11th at 176.9 ypg.) and 2013 (sixth at 167.4 ypg.). After ranking third in pass efficiency defense last season with a 98.8 rating, the Spartans are No. 2 in the FBS entering the bowls in that same category with a 91.5 rating. MSU also ranks third in the Big Ten and tied for 19th in the FBS with 16 interceptions.

All four of MSU’s starting defensive backs received All-Big Ten recognition, including three first-team All-Big Ten selections. The group is led by senior captain Darqueze Dennard, the first-ever cornerback at Michigan State to earn consensus first-team All-America honors. Dennard is also the first Spartan to win the Jim Thorpe Award, which is given annually to the nation’s best defensive back. In addition, Dennard was named the winner of the Jack Tatum Award, which is presented to college football’s top defensive back by The Touchdown Club of Columbus. The lock-down corner, who was a finalist for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and named the Big Ten Defensive Back of the Year, ranks among the Big Ten leaders in interceptions (4), pass break-ups (10) and passes defended (14). Senior strong safety Isaiah Lewis and junior free safety Kurtis Drummond were also selected All-Big Ten First Team by the coaches, while sophomore cornerback Trae Waynes garnered honorable mention. Barnett’s players have earned All-Big Ten honors 20 times since his arrival as secondary coach at MSU, including six first-team selections (Otis Wiley in 2008; Trenton Robinson in 2011; Johnny Adams in 2011-12; Darqueze Dennard in 2011-12, Kurtis Drummond in 2012; Isaiah Lewis in 2012). The past four seasons alone, Spartan defensive backs have picked up All-Big Ten recognition on 15 occasions, and all four of MSU’s starters in the secondary garnered All-Big Ten recognition during the 2010, 2011 and 2013 seasons.

Rucker (2011, Indianapolis Colts, sixth round), and Robinson (2012, San Francisco 49ers, sixth round). In June 2012, Barnett was one of eight football coaches to participate in the Champion Forum, the top tier of the NCAA’s coaching academy programs, held in conjunction with the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) Convention in Dallas. Barnett, who spent three seasons as secondary coach on Mark Dantonio’s staff at Cincinnati, landed his first collegiate coaching job as a graduate assistant at LSU in 2003 under Nick Saban, where he was a part of the Tigers’ National Championship campaign. A native of Cincinnati, Barnett was a three-year starter for Coach George Perles at MSU. He was a member of the 1987 Big Ten and 1988 Rose Bowl championship team and earned first-team All-America recognition by The Sporting News as a senior in 1989. Following his impressive career at MSU, Barnett was taken in the fourth round of the 1990 NFL Draft by Cleveland, where he played for three seasons (1990-92).

COACHING STAFF

RON BURTON DEFENSIVE LINE FIRST SEASON

Ron Burton, a 21-year coaching veteran who also played four seasons in the NFL, has made an immediate impact in his first year on the Spartan staff as the defensive line coach. Burton previously spent the past 10 seasons as the defensive line coach at Air Force.

Brad Salem, a former head coach at NCAA Division II Augustana College in Sioux Falls, S.D., is in his fourth year on the coaching staff at Michigan State and his first as quarterbacks coach. He is also in his third year as the program’s recruiting coordinator.

Michigan State’s defensive line has shown significant improvement in its productivity under Burton, increasing its totals in sacks (+11.5) and tackles for loss (+4) from last season. In his first year as a starter, sophomore Shilique Calhoun earned second-team All-America honors from numerous organizations and was named the Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year. Calhoun leads the team in sacks (7.5) and ranks second in tackles for loss (14), leads the Big Ten with four fumble recoveries, and is one of only two players in the FBS this season to score three defensive touchdowns.

Salem has been instrumental in helping the development of Connor Cook in his first season as the starting quarterback. Cook, who took over the starting role in Week 2 against South Florida, has won 11 of his first 12 games at quarterback and ranks among MSU’s single-season leaders in passing touchdowns (tied for fifth with 20), pass completions (eighth with 201) and passing yards (11th with 2,423). His progress was on full display in the Big Ten Championship Game, as Cook took home Most Valuable Player honors after completing 24-of-40 passes for a career-high 304 yards and three touchdowns.

Junior Marcus Rush garnered honorable mention All-Big Ten accolades for the third year in a row, while senior defensive tackles Micajah Reynolds and Tyler Hoover have both delivered their most productive seasons wearing the Green and White. In addition, Burton has helped develop sophomores Damon Knox and Mark Scarpinato, who have each filled in as starters and added quality depth to the defensive front. During his 10 seasons at Air Force, Burton helped the Falcons to a combined record of 67-57 (.540), including a school-record six consecutive postseason bowl appearances (2007-12), while developing some of the top defensive linemen in school history. Burton also served as the program’s NFL liaison. In 2008, Jake Paulson became the first-ever defensive lineman at Air Force to earn first-team All-Mountain West honors after recording 14.5 tackles for loss and nine sacks. One year later, nose guard Ben Garland was a second-team All-MWC selection and signed a free agent contract with the Denver Broncos. In the Falcons’ 2010 Independence Bowl victory over Georgia Tech, defensive lineman Rick Ricketts, a second-team All-MWC choice, was named the defensive most valuable player of the game. Burton also coached two-time Academic All-American (defensive end) Ryan Carter. Before arriving at Air Force, Burton spent one season (2002) at Grand Valley State and helped lead the Lakers to a perfect 14-0 record and the 2002 NCAA Division II National Championship, the first in school history. Burton has Big Ten coaching experience, as he spent five seasons as the linebackers coach at Indiana from 1997-2001. A four-year letterman (1982-86) at North Carolina, Burton helped the Tar Heels to three bowl appearances during his career and was named team captain and best defensive lineman as a senior. He graduated from UNC with a bachelor’s degree in industrial relations in 1987.

Bell had a career year in 2012, winning the Big Ten rushing title and ranking third in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision, averaging 137.9 yards per game. Named a first-team All-American by CollegeFootballNews.com, Bell compiled 1,793 rushing yards, the second-highest single-season total in MSU history. The first-team All-Big Ten selection finished his career ranked among MSU’s all-time leaders in rushing TDs (sixth with 33), rushing attempts (sixth with 671), rushing yards (seventh with 3,346), 100-yard rushing games (eighth with 12) and all-purpose yards (ninth with 4,114).

Baker was selected in the seventh round of the 2012 National Football League Draft by the San Diego Chargers. Under Salem’s direction in 2010, Michigan State’s running backs improved their totals from 2009. The resurgent running game was led by Baker, who became just the sixth sophomore in MSU history to reach the 1,000-yard milestone as he compiled 1,201 rushing yards. A first-team All-Big Ten honoree by the media, Baker ranked fourth in the Big Ten and 30th nationally in rushing, averaging 92.4 ypg.

100TH ROSE BOWL GAME • MICHIGAN STATE VS. STANFORD

COACHING STAFF Terrence Samuel, a 15-year coaching veteran who played his collegiate football at Purdue, is in his third year as wide receivers coach at Michigan State. Perhaps no position group on the team has seen as much improvement as the wide receiver corps. A season after having to break in as many as four starters, the unit has solidified itself as one of the best in the Big Ten. The Spartans are one of only two teams in the conference, along with Illinois, to have seven players with at least 16 receptions. In addition, nine different Spartans have caught touchdowns in 2013, led by fifth-year senior Bennie Fowler, who has hauled in six. Junior Tony Lippett has recorded career highs in receptions (39) and receiving yards (519), while Macgarrett Kings Jr. also has 39 catches for 461 yards and three scores. Fowler also has registered a career-high 525 receiving yards.

TERRENCE SAMUEL WIDE RECEIVERS THIRD SEASON

After a record-breaking season in 2011, Samuel had the difficult challenge of restocking MSU’s receiving corps as only 23 percent of the team’s receptions and 16 percent of the team’s receiving yards returned in 2012. The young Spartans – featuring four new full-time starters and no seniors – improved significantly as the season progressed. Michigan State was the only team in the Big Ten to feature six players with at least 29 receptions, and three receivers recorded their first career touchdown catch. Samuel made an immediate impact at MSU in his first season. He helped tutor fifth-year senior B.J. Cunningham, who became the school’s all-time leader in receptions (218) and receiving yards (3,086). Under Samuel, Cunningham had his finest season as a Spartan, setting career highs in receptions (79), receiving yards (1,306) and touchdown catches (12). Those marks also ranked among MSU’s single-season leaders in receptions (tied for first), receiving yards (third) and touchdowns (tied for third). In addition, he set an MSU singleseason record with eight 100-yard receiving games. Cunningham was a second-team All-Big Ten selection by the coaches and media, and also earned All-America honors from Phil Steele (fourth team) and SI.com (honorable mention). Senior Keshawn Martin, an honorable mention All-Big Ten pick, also produced his best year, recording career highs in receptions (66) and receiving yards (777). A multi-dimensional threat, Martin finished his career ranked second in MSU history in punt return yards (659), eighth in kick return yards (1,100), 10th in all-purpose yards (4,013), 11th in receptions (127), 16th in receiving yards (1,714) and tied for 17th in touchdown receptions (10). Cunningham (79 catches) and Martin (66) combined for 145 receptions in 2011, the most ever by a receiving duo in a Michigan State season (previous record: 124 by Charles Rogers (67) and Herb Haygood (57) in 2001). Cunningham (1,306 yards) and Martin (777) also produced the most receiving yards of any receiving duo in an MSU season, teaming up for 2,083 receiving yards in 2011 (previous record: Plaxico Burress (1,142) and Gari Scott (843) with 1,985 receiving yards in 1998). Both of those marks by Cunningham and Martin (145 receptions; 2,083 receiving yards) ranked first among receiving duos in the Big Ten in 2011. Martin was selected in the fourth round of the 2012 National Football League Draft by the Houston Texas, while Cunningham was picked in the sixth round by the Miami Dolphins. Samuel spent the 2010 season at Central Michigan under former Spartan quarterback and assistant coach Dan Enos. For Samuel’s complete bio, please visit msuspartans.com.

Mark Staten is in his seventh year on the coaching staff at Michigan State and his third as the offensive line coach. He was promoted to offensive line coach in February 2011 after serving as the tight ends/tackles coach and recruiting coordinator for four years. Staten adds a mix of professional playing experience with a solid coaching background. This season, Staten has helped mold the top offensive line in head coach Mark Dantonio’s tenure in East Lansing. The group, which sees as many as eight in the playing rotation, has been one of the main reasons why Michigan State has continued to improve MARK STATEN throughout the season on the offensive side of the OFFENSIVE LINE ball. All five starters received postseason recognition, SEVENTH SEASON including left guard Blake Treadwell (second-team All-Big Ten, coaches and media), center Jack Allen (secondteam All-Big Ten, media), right tackle Fou Fonoti (honorable mention All-Big Ten), right guard Dan France (honorable mention All-Big Ten) and left tackle Jack Conklin (first-team Freshman All-American, Sporting News and CollegeFootballNews.com). Junior center Travis Jackson, junior guard Connor Kruse and sophomore tackle Donavon Clark have also been instrumental to the line’s success. Michigan State has not only protected first-year starting quarterback Connor Cook, as the line has only given up 13 sacks (tied for second fewest in Big Ten and tied for 13th fewest in the FBS), but also has paved the way for Jeremy Langford, who leads the conference with 17 rushing touchdowns. When the game is on the line, the unit performs at its best – the Spartans rank 13th in the FBS in fourth quarter rushing (62.4 ypg.). In addition, MSU ranks fifth in the nation in time of possession (33:29 per game). MSU had to deal with multiple injuries throughout the first half of 2012, including the loss of starters Fonoti and Jackson. The Spartans used six different starting combinations along the offensive line, but still managed to pave the way for first-team All-Big Ten selection Le’Veon Bell, who led the Big Ten and ranked third in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision in rushing, averaging 137.9 yards per game. The line showed signs of improvement toward the end of the season, as Bell averaged 183.0 rushing yards when the Spartans used the same starting five up front for the last four games. For the second-straight season, Staten mentored a Freshman All-American, as Allen earned first-team honors from both Sporting News and the Football Writers Association of America. Jackson earned Freshman All-America honors in 2011. Heading into 2011, Michigan State’s offensive line had to replace three starters, but Staten helped develop a young group that featured just one senior starter into one of the best in the Big Ten. Although the Spartans had to use four different starting combinations on the offensive line, including three different starting centers, the unit allowed just 16 sacks, second-fewest in the Big Ten and 19th-fewest in the FBS. As tight ends/tackles coach, Staten’s players collected All-Big Ten honors on seven occasions, including second-team tackle Pete Clifford (2007), second-team tackle Jesse Miller (2008), second-team tight end Charlie Gantt (2010) and second-team tackle D.J. Young (2010). As recruiting coordinator, Staten helped put together a 2009 recruiting class that analysts ranked among the nation’s Top 25 (MaxPreps/Tom Lemming No. 12, PrepStar No. 15, Rivals. com No. 17 and Scouts, Inc. No. 21). The Spartans followed that effort with another stellar class in 2010 that was ranked among the nation’s Top 30 (MaxPreps/Tom Lemming No. 22, Rivals.com No. 29).

COACHING STAFF Mike Tressel is in his seventh year as the linebackers and special teams coach at Michigan State. The impressive play of the linebackers is one of the main reasons why Michigan State has led the Big Ten in rushing defense and total defense the past two seasons and continues to rank No. 1 in both of those categories in 2013. In addition, the Spartans are one of just three NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision Schools, along with Alabama and Florida State, to rank in the Top 10 nationally in total defense, rushing defense and scoring defense the last three years. MIKE TRESSEL LINEBACKERS/SPECIAL TEAMS SEVENTH SEASON

Senior captain Max Bullough, a two-time first-team All-Big Ten selection, is the quarterback of the nation’s top-ranked defense. A third-team All-America honoree by The Associated Press, Bullough has started 40 consecutive games at middle linebacker and ranks among the team leaders in tackles (76) and tackles for loss (9.5). He also ranks 11th in school history in tackles for loss (30.5) and 18th in tackles (299). Fellow three-year starter Denicos Allen picked up second-team All-America accolades from SI.com. Allen, who is right behind Bullough with 39 straight starts, leads the team in tackles (91) and tackles for loss (15) and ranks third in the school record book with 44.5 career tackles for loss. Junior Taiwan Jones, the starter at Star (weakside) linebacker, ranks tied for fourth on the team with 59 tackles and has six tackles for loss. Tressel also oversees a successful special teams unit that has been one of the best in the Big Ten since his arrival. Junior punter Mike Sadler, who was selected a first-team All-American by CBSSports.com and ESPN.com, has proven to be a valuable weapon, as he leads the nation with 22 punts downed inside the 10-yard line and ranks third with 30 placed inside the 20. True freshman placekicker Michael Geiger stepped into the starting role in Week 4 and has risen to the challenge. Geiger has made 12 consecutive field goals entering the Rose Bowl Game and his .933 field-goal percentage is tops in the Big Ten. He was an honorable mention All-America pick by SI.com. The past seven years, MSU has had two first-team All-Big Ten placekickers (Conroy and Brett Swenson), two first-team All-Big Ten punters (Sadler and Aaron Bates), and has featured conference leaders in both kick returns (Devin Thomas) and punt returns (Keshawn Martin). In 2011, Michigan State led the Big Ten in rushing defense (100.5 yards per game) and total defense (277.4 ypg.) en route to winning the Big Ten Legends Division title. For the first time since 1990, all three of MSU’s starting linebackers garnered All-Big Ten honors. Allen, who ranked second in the Big Ten in sacks with 11 and fourth in tackles for loss with 18.5, was named second-team all-conference by the media. Bullough picked up second-team accolades from the coaches after leading the Spartans with 89 tackles and junior Chris Norman was named honorable mention after recording career highs in tackles (76) and tackles for loss (6.5). Tressel arrived at Michigan State following the 2006 regular season, as he was one of eight assistants to follow Dantonio to MSU from Cincinnati.

The fourth annual Orange Bowl game wasn’t nearly as close as the final score might indicate as Auburn dominated play on both sides of the football in recording a shutout victory, 6-0, over Michigan State. It still ranks as the lowest-scoring game in Orange Bowl history. Auburn wasted two scoring opportunities in the first quarter. Jimmy Fenton’s 25-yard run gave the Tigers a first-and-10 at the MSU 12, but the Spartan defense responded by stuffing three-straight running plays and Lyle Rockenbach broke up Fenton’s fourth-down pass. Tom McShannock’s interception and 29-yard return ended Auburn’s second scoring threat. The game’s only touchdown came in the second quarter and it was set up by George Kenmore’s 28-yard pass to Ralph O’Gwynne to the MSU 2. Auburn fullback Pel Sitz netted only 1 yard on three carries before O’Gwynne scored on a 1-yard run around left end on fourth-and-goal. The Tigers had several chances in the second half to break the game open. Auburn turned the ball over on downs at the MSU 16 in the third quarter after Dutch Heath’s 12-yard interception return to the MSU 24. Michigan State failed to record a first down until late in the third quarter when Ed Pearce broke a 29-yard run. Auburn drove inside the MSU 30 twice in the fourth quarter but failed to put points on the scoreboard. The Spartans’ only other first down came on a 23-yard pass from John Pingel to Usif Haney midway through the fourth quarter. Auburn outgained Michigan State in total yards, 278-67. Fenton and Speck Kelly combined for 137 of the Tigers’ 197 rushing yards, gaining 76 and 61 yards, respectively. Auburn held Pingel, MSU’s All-America halfback, to 12 yards rushing on seven carries. A sellout crowd of nearly 19,000 attended the game at Miami’s brand-new $360,000 Roddy Burdine Stadium. SCORING SUMMARY Second Quarter AU – Ralph O’Gwynne 1 run (kick failed).

Dave Kaiser converted his first career field-goal attempt, a 41-yarder with seven seconds left, to give No. 2 Michigan State a 17-14 win over No. 4 UCLA in the 1956 Rose Bowl. Michigan State found itself in an early hole as Earl Morrall’s pass on the first play from scrimmage was intercepted by Jim Decker and returned 4 yards to the MSU 16. Four plays later, Bob Davenport scored on a 2-yard run over left guard to give the Bruins a 7-0 lead with 11:48 left in the first quarter. Midway through the second quarter, Michigan State put together an 11-play, 80-yard drive to pull even at 7. Walt Kowalczyk’s 30-yard run to the UCLA 17 set up Morrall’s 13-yard touchdown toss to Clarence Peaks.

Gary Beban ran for two touchdowns and threw for 147 yards to lead No. 5 UCLA to a 14-12 upset win over No. 2 Michigan State in the 1966 Rose Bowl. Michigan State committed four first-half turnovers, with the first coming late in the first quarter as Don Japinga fumbled away a punt at the Spartan 6 that UCLA’s John Erquiaga recovered. On the opening play of the second quarter, Beban scored on a 1-yard sneak to give the Bruins a 7-0 lead. UCLA then surprised the Spartans with an on-sides kick that Bruin Dallas Grider recovered at the MSU 42. Beban hooked up with Kurt Altenburg for a 27-yard pass to the MSU 1. Beban capped off the five-play, 42-yard drive with another 1-yard sneak as UCLA scored twice in 3:07 to build a 14-0 lead. Michigan State rallied late in the fourth quarter, scoring twice in the final 6:13. Steve Juday’s 42-yard strike to Gene Washington set up Bob Apisa’s 38-yard TD run. Juday’s two-point pass attempt failed and the Spartans trailed 14-6. The Spartan defense held on the next series and Bubba Smith partially blocked Larry Cox’s punt to give MSU possession at the UCLA 49. Juday finished off the 14-play scoring drive with a 1-yard sneak with 31 seconds left. On the two-point try, Apisa was stopped short of the goal line by Grider and Bob Stiles. UCLA stopped the Spartans on fourth-and-1 plays three times in the second half, including twice in the fourth quarter. Michigan State outgained UCLA in total yards, 314-212. The Spartans picked up 204 yards on the ground, with Clinton Jones rushing for 113 yards on 20 carries.

Wishbone quarterback Nate Sassaman rushed for 136 yards on 28 carries to lead Army, making its first-ever bowl appearance, to a 10-6 triumph over Michigan State in the 1984 Cherry Bowl. Michigan State had an early scoring chance after Phil Parker intercepted a rare Army pass and returned it 18 yards to the Cadet 43. Three plays netted only 8 yards and Ralf Mojsiejenko’s 52-yard field-goal attempt missed wide left. The Spartans put together a nine-play, 58-yard drive but early in the second quarter on third-and-goal from the Army 5, Dave Yarema’s pass was intercepted in the end zone by Kermit McKelvy. A Michigan State fumble near midfield led to Army’s only touchdown. Cadet Clarence Jones capped off an eight-play, 46-yard drive with a 4-yard run off right tackle to give Army a 7-0 lead with 6:41 left in the first half. Early in the third quarter, Sassaman rushed eight times for 37 yards during a 14-play, 49-yard drive, but Craig Stopa’s 32-yard field-goal try went wide right.

Facing a third-and-8 from the MSU 30, McAllister eluded a heavy rush and completed a 36-yard pass to Rison for a first down at the USC 34. Blake Ezor carried the ball six straight times to the USC 18 to set up Langeloh’s game-winning field goal. USC took the ensuing kickoff and drove to the MSU 30, but Peete fumbled away the center snap and Todd Krumm recovered. John Miller iced the game for the Spartans, intercepting Peete’s “Hail Mary” pass at the MSU 13 with only :03 left. USC dominated the final stats, outgaining MSU, 410-276, in total yards but the Trojans committed five turnovers while the Spartans managed to play error-free football.

Courtney Hawkins accounted for 216 all-purpose yards and caught a touchdown pass to lead No. 22 Michigan State to a 17-16 win over No. 21 Southern Cal in the 1990 Sun Bowl. MSU dodged a bullet early as Mike Iaquaniello intercepted a Todd Marinovich pass in the end zone on USC’s first series. Late in the first quarter, the Trojans put together an eight-play, 60-yard drive to take a 7-0 lead on Marinovich’s 7-yard pass to Gary Wellman. After a Spartan fumble, USC was again knocking on the door, but on a fourth-and-inches play from inside the MSU 1, Marinovich mishandled the snap from center and Alan Haller recovered the fumble in the end zone for a touchback. MSU took advantage of the turnover and Hyland Hickson capped a 10-play, 80-yard drive with an 18-yard TD run with 2:22 left in the first half. USC opened the second half with an 18-play, 80-yard drive that lasted nine minutes but it had to settle for a 20-yard field goal from Quin Rodriguez. The Spartans responded by scoring 10-straight points. On a third-and-13 play from the MSU 26, Dan Enos hit Hawkins on a post pattern for a 41-yard gain and a first down at the USC 33. Four plays later, Hawkins scored on a 21-yard pass from Enos that gave MSU its first lead at 14-10. Freddie Wilson’s interception at the USC 34 late in the third quarter led to a 52-yard field goal by John Langeloh as the Spartans built a 17-10 advantage. The Trojans got field goals of 54 and 43 yards from Rodriguez in the fourth quarter to cut the deficit to 17-16. MSU iced the game with two rushing first downs in the final three minutes. Hawkins caught six passes for 106 yards and a score to earn Sun Bowl MVP honors. Enos connected on 9-of-17 throws for 131 yards, including eight-straight completions during one stretch.

Jeff Brohm completed 19-of-29 passes for 197 yards and a touchdown to lead Louisville to an 18-7 win over Michigan State in the 1993 Liberty Bowl. Michigan State’s only touchdown came on the game’s first series. The Spartans took the opening kickoff and drove 79 yards in 11 plays with Duane Goulbourne twisting into the end zone on a 1-yard run over left guard. Spartan QB Jim Miller started with a hot hand, hitting all four pass attempts for 50 yards on the first series. Louisville also scored on its first possession as an eight-play, 56-yard march ended with David Akers’ 31-yard field goal. Midway through the second quarter, the Spartans missed out on a scoring chance when Bill Stoyanovich misfired on a 31-yard field-goal attempt. Louisville put together a 14-play, 74-yard drive in the third quarter, but failed to put points on the scoreboard as Akers missed a 23-yard field-goal try. Brohm directed a seven-play, 59-yard drive for the go-ahead score early in the fourth quarter, hitting Reggie Ferguson on a crossing pattern for a 25-yard TD pass. A 24-yard interception return by Darius Watson gave Louisville the ball back at the MSU 33 but seven plays later, the Spartan defense stopped Anthony Shelman short of the goal line on fourth-and-1.

Paul Edinger kicked a 39-yard field goal as time expired to give No. 9 Michigan State a 37-34 victory over No. 10 Florida in the 2000 Florida Citrus Bowl. It marked Michigan State’s first New Year’s Day bowl victory since the 1988 Rose Bowl and it ended a fourgame losing streak in postseason play. There were five lead changes in the contest. The Spartans opened the scoring as an eight-play, 36-yard drive resulted in a 46-yard field goal by Edinger. Florida took a 7-3 lead as Travis Taylor scored on a 12-yard toss from Doug Johnson. Michigan State jumped out to a 17-7 lead in the second quarter on Bill Burke’s 37-yard TD strike to Plaxico Burress and a 24-yard fumble return by T.J. Turner. The Gators pulled to within 17-14 on Johnson’s 8-yard TD pass to Taylor. Edinger’s second field goal, a 20-yarder, gave the Spartans a 20-14 lead, but Johnson scored on a 1-yard sneak to put Florida ahead at the half, 21-20.

The Spartan defense bounced back in the second half, allowing only 106 total yards while holding Nebraska scoreless. Michigan State’s offense came to life midway through the fourth quarter. Smoker completed five-straight passes for 39 yards and Tyrell Dortch gained 16 yards on two running plays as the Spartans marched to the Cornhusker 17. After a personal-foul penalty pushed the Spartans back 15 yards, Pat Ricketts ended the scoring threat when he picked off Smoker’s throw intended for Aaron Alexander at the Nebraska 24. The Cornhuskers limited Michigan State to a season-low 174 total yards – nearly 210 yards below its season average. Nebraska sacked Smoker five times for 37 yards and forced three interceptions.

Matt Ryan completed 22-of-47 passes for 249 yards and three scores to lead No. 14 Boston College to a 24-21 victory over Michigan State in the 2007 Champs Sports Bowl. The Eagle defense forced five turnovers, including two interceptions by All-American Jamie Silva. Michigan State started the game with a bang, as Devin Thomas returned the opening kickoff 79 yards to the BC 18. Three plays later, Kellen Davis scored on an 18-yard strike from Brian Hoyer as the Spartans jumped out to a 7-0 lead. A fumble inside the MSU 20 set up BC’s first score, a 1-yard toss from Ryan to Jon Loyte that tied the game at 7 with 36 seconds left in the first quarter. Boston College took the lead for good on its next possession as a 10-play, 70-yard drive resulted in Ryan’s second TD pass, a 29-yarder to Rich Gunnell, with 8:54 remaining in the second quarter. Late in the first half, Michigan State caught a break as Johnny Ayers shanked a 12-yard punt that went out of bounds at the BC 30. Three plays netted only 8 yards and the Spartans had to settle for a 39-yard field goal from Brett Swenson to pull to within 14-10. On its opening possession of the third quarter, Michigan State put together an 11-play, 54-yard drive that resulted in Swenson’s 23-yard field goal and cut its deficit to 14-13. Boston College answered on its next series as Steve Aponavicius capped an 11-play, 69-yard drive with a 28-yard field goal to extend its lead to 17-13. Ryan’s 68-yard bomb to Gunnell early in the fourth quarter gave the Eagles a 24-13 lead. Midway through the fourth quarter, Greg Jones sacked Ryan and forced a fumble that Oren Wilson recovered at the BC 37. Three plays later, Hoyer hooked up with Deon Curry for a 14-yard scoring pass as the Spartans rallied to within 24-21 with 6:04 left in the game. Michigan State got the ball back twice in the closing minutes but failed to enter BC territory. The Spartans outgained Boston College in total yards, 303-276.

Matthew Stafford completed 20-of-31 throws for 250 yards and three touchdowns to lead No. 16 Georgia to a 24-12 victory over No. 19 Michigan State in the 2009 Capital One Bowl. Michigan State took the opening kickoff and drove the ball to the Georgia 39-yard line, but Dwayne Holmes was stopped short of a first down on a fake punt. The Bulldogs responded with an eight-play, 48-yard drive of their own and took a 3-0 lead on Blair Walsh’s 32-yard field goal with 9:26 left in the first quarter. Georgia’s second possession resulted in a turnover, as Kendell Davis-Clark returned his first career interception 24 yards to set up Brett Swenson’s 20-yard field goal that tied the score at 3 with 4:50 to play in the opening quarter. The Spartans forced two turnovers in the first quarter but managed to produce only a field goal. Late in the first half, another Georgia miscue – a mishandled snap by punter Brian Mimbs – gave the Spartans great field position at the UGA 40. However, Michigan State had to settle for a 32-yard field goal from Swenson and a 6-3 halftime lead after Brian Hoyer was sacked by Jarius Wynn for a 5-yard loss on a third-and-6 play from the Bulldog 10. Georgia’s offense came to life in the second half, as Stafford connected on 14-of-17 passes for 179 yards and three scores. Stafford capped off a 10-play, 96-yard drive with a 35-yard TD strike to Michael Moore as the Bulldogs took the lead for good at 10-6 with 3:31 remaining in the third quarter. Prince Miller’s 38-yard punt return plus a 15-yard personal-foul penalty set up Stafford’s second scoring pass, a 21-yarder to Aron White with 0:09 to play in the third quarter to build a 17-6 advantage. Early in the fourth quarter, Michigan State pulled to within 17-12 as Javon Ringer finished off a 10-play, 54-yard drive with a 1-yard plunge for his school-record 22nd TD run of the season. Georgia answered with an 11-play, 67-yard drive and iced the game on Stafford’s 21-yard TD toss to Knowshon Moreno, who made the grab over Greg Jones at the front corner of the end zone. The Bulldog defense held Michigan State to a season-low 236 total yards, including just 31 yards on 34 rushing attempts. SCORING SUMMARY First Quarter UGA – Blair Walsh 32-yard field goal, 9:26 left.

MSU responded with a quick strike, as Kirk Cousins hooked up with Keshawn Martin for a 48-yard scoring play with 8:06 left in the first half. A 38-yard field goal by Williams gave Texas Tech a 20-14 halftime lead. The Red Raiders’ Eric Stephens fumbled the second-half kickoff and Brett Swenson recovered the ball at the Texas Tech 26. Five plays later, Keith Nichol scored his first career rushing TD on a 7-yard keeper up the middle as MSU took its first lead at 21-20. Midway through the third quarter, Texas Tech put together a nine-play, 92-yard drive and regained the lead at 27-21 on a 14-yard TD pass from Potts to Jacoby Franks.

Mark Ingram and Eddie Lacy combined to rush for 145 yards and four touchdowns to lead No. 15 Alabama to a 49-7 victory over No. 7 Michigan State in the 2011 Capital One Bowl. Alabama scored on its first four possessions to build a 28-0 halftime lead. The Crimson Tide took the opening kickoff and drove 79 yards in 11 plays and jumped out to a 7-0 lead on Ingram’s 1-yard TD run. On its opening series, Michigan State drove to the Alabama 24 but on a third-and-18 play, Kirk Cousins’ pass attempt was intercepted by Robert Lester. Trent Richardson capped off an eight-play, 62-yard drive with an 8-yard TD run with 14:33 left in the second quarter. Trailing 14-0, a 28-yard completion from Cousins to Brian Linthicum gave MSU a first-and-goal at the Crimson Tide 7. Facing third-and-goal from the 8-yard line, Cousins fumbled while being sacked by Courtney Upshaw as the play resulted in a 30-yard loss and took the Spartans out of field-goal range. Ingram reached paydirt on a 6-yard run and Julio Jones scored on a 35-yard reverse around left end as Alabama took a 28-0 lead to the locker room. Greg McElroy hooked up with Marquis Maze for a 37-yard scoring play and Lacy added TD runs of 12 and 62 yards as the Crimson Tide built a 49-0 lead. The Spartans avoided a shutout as Bennie Fowler scored on a 49-yard pass from Keith Nichol with 5:45 remaining in the fourth quarter. Alabama limited MSU to a season-low 171 total yards – nearly 236 yards below its regular-season average. Upshaw recorded five tackles with three resulting in losses (29 yards), including two sacks, to earn game MVP honors.

Dan Conroy converted a 28-yard field goal in the third overtime and Anthony Rashad White blocked Blair Walsh’s 47-yard field-goal attempt to give No. 12 Michigan State a 33-30 victory over No. 18 Georgia in the 2012 Outback Bowl. The Spartans rallied from a 16-0 halftime deficit to snap a five-game bowl losing streak. Georgia jumped out to a 16-0 lead as Brandon Boykin tackled Keshawn Martin for a 2-yard loss and a safety on MSU’s first play from scrimmage, Aaron Murray hit Tavarres King for an 80-yard touchdown, and Boykin returned a punt 92 yards for a touchdown. The Spartan defense helped set the tone in the second half, as Georgia’s first possession ended with Darqueze Dennard’s interception at the Bulldog 48. Nine plays later, Le’Veon Bell scored on an 8-yard run around right end, and with Kirk Cousins’ 2-point pass to Brian Linthicum, the Spartans had cut Georgia’s lead in half at 16-8. Late in the third quarter, Dennard returned his second interception 38 yards for a touchdown as MSU pulled to within 16-14. Trailing 19-14 early in the fourth quarter, Cousins’ 50-yard completion to Linthicum set up his 7-yard TD strike to Keith Nichol on a third-and-goal play. The Bulldogs responded with a five-play, 81-yard drive to take a 27-20 lead on Murray’s 13-yard TD toss to Boykin. Down seven with 1:55 remaining and no timeouts, Cousins engineered a 10-play, 85-yard drive, as the Spartans rallied to send the game into overtime on Bell’s 1-yard TD run with 14 seconds left in regulation. Cousins accounted for 84 of MSU’s 85 yards on the scoring drive, connecting on 6-of-8 passes for 64 yards and scrambling for another 20 yards. After a scoreless first overtime, the teams traded field goals in the second overtime. SCORING SUMMARY First Quarter UGA – Brandon Boykin safety, 12:07 left.

Dan Conroy hit a game-winning 47-yard field goal with 1:01 remaining in the fourth quarter as Michigan State defeated TCU, 17-16, in the 2012 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. Le’Veon Bell led all players with 145 yards rushing on 32 carries, including a 4-yard touchdown run, and was named the Offensive Player of the Game. William Gholston earned Defensive Player of the Game honors after leading MSU with a season-high nine tackles, including a 5-yard sack. TCU jumped out to a 7-0 lead as Matthew Tucker capped a nine-play, 73-yard drive with a 4-yard TD run with 5:45 left in the first quarter. The Horned Frogs added to their lead after Jared Oberkrom connected on field goals of 47 and 31 yards in the second quarter. Michigan State got on the board with 34 seconds left in the third quarter as Connor Cook capped MSU’s longest touchdown drive of the season and longest in bowl history (14 plays, 90 yards) with his first career TD pass, a 15-yard strike to Aaron Burbridge. Trailing 13-7 midway through the fourth quarter, the Spartans took advantage of a crucial TCU turnover as RJ Williamson recovered a fumbled punt return by Skye Dawson at the TCU 4-yard line. Two plays later, Bell scored on a 4-yard run, giving MSU a 14-13 lead with 7:00 remaining. TCU regained the lead, 16-14, on Oberkrom’s 53-yard field goal with 2:42 left in the game, but Cook led MSU on an eight-play, 45-yard scoring drive capped by Conroy’s 47-yard field goal with just over a minute remaining. On the ensuing possession, the Spartans held the Horned Frogs without a first down to seal the 17-16 win.
