FIRST-AND-10 – • 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. The Spartans have won back-to-back bowl games for the first time since the 1989-90 seasons (MSU defeated Georgia, 33-30, in triple overtime in the 2012 Outback Bowl). • MSU’s 29 wins over the last three seasons ties for 13th most among NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision teams and is second most in the Big Ten during that same period; in addition, it’s the winningest three-year stretch in school history. The Spartans have posted three consecutive winning seasons, a first for the program since recording six in a row from 1985-90. MSU has won 29 of their last 40 games (.725), dating back to the beginning of the 2010 season. • Michigan State has appeared in a school-record six consecutive bowl games (2007 Champs Sports Bowl, 2009 Capital One Bowl, 2010 Alamo Bowl, 2011 Capital One Bowl, 2012 Outback Bowl, 2012 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl). The six-year bowl streak is currently tied for the 18th longest in the NCAA FBS and second longest in the Big Ten. • In the past four seasons, MSU has recorded 27 Big Ten victories, the most of any team in the conference. The Spartans produced back-to-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 won the inaugural Big Ten Legends Divisions title in 2011. • Michigan State returns seven starters and 11 players with starting experience from the Big Ten’s top-ranked defense 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 addition, MSU also led the Big Ten in six defensive categories (touchdowns allowed, total defense, scoring defense, pass efficiency defense, rushing defense and third-down defense). • The Spartans are one of just five NCAA FBS schools, along with Alabama, Florida State, Florida and LSU, to rank among the Top 10 nationally in total defense the past two seasons. Michigan State ranked fourth in total defense in 2012 (274.4 ypg.) and sixth in 2011 (277.4 ypg). • MSU has also ranked in the NCAA FBS Top 10 the past two seasons in rushing defense (eighth in 2012 at 98.6 yppg.; ninth in 2011 at 100.5 ypg.) and scoring defense (ninth in 2012 at 16.3 ppg.; 10th in 2011 at 18.4 ppg). Michigan State, Alabama and Florida State are the only schools in the nation to rank among the NCAA FBS Top 10 in total defense, rushing defense and scoring defense the past two seasons. • In addition, MSU has ranked among the NCAA FBS Top 15 in pass defense in 2011 (11th at 176.9 ypg.) and 2012 (ninth at 175.8 ypg.). Michigan State and Alabama are the only two programs in the country to rank in the NCAA FBS Top 15 the past two seasons in total defense, rushing defense, passing defense and scoring defense. • The Spartans return five players who received All-Big Ten recognition on defense in 2012, including first-team selections Max Bullough (LB) and Darqueze Dennard (CB). Senior linebacker Denicos Allen, senior strong safety Isaiah Lewis and junior defensive end Marcus Rush earned honorable mention All-Big Ten accolades from the coaches and media.

FIRST AND 10 CONTINUED – • Michigan State returns nine starters and 12 players with starting experience on offense. Seven players have starting experience on the offensive line, including left tackle Dan France (24 starts), center Travis Jackson (15), right tackle Skyler Burkland (14), right tackle Fou Fonoti (13), center/guard Jack Allen (12), left guard Blake Treadwell (10) and left tackle Donavon Clark (2). Michigan State had six different starting combinations in 13 games on the offensive line last season. Jackson started five games at center before missing the remainder of the season following a knee injury/broken leg he suffered in week five against Ohio State; Fonoti started the first two games at right tackle but was ruled out for the season after he injured his foot in practice during the third week of the year. INSIDE THE NUMBERS – • The offense must replace first-team All-Big Ten running back Le’Veon Bell, who led the Big Ten and ranked third in the NCAA FBS in rushing, averaging 137.9 yards per game. Bell was one of three juniors on MSU’s 2012 roster to forgo his senior season and enter the NFL Draft (defensive end William Gholston, tight end Dion Sims). Bell accounted for 92 percent of the team’s rushing total in 2012, as he recorded 1,793 rushing yards, the second-highest single-season total in MSU history. Bell also had 12 of the team’s 13 rushing touchdowns. Bell rushed for 3,346 yards and 33 TDs in 40 career games. He 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) and all-purpose yards (ninth with 4,114). Bell had 12 career 100-yard rushing games, which is eighth most in MSU history. Bell also had 78 career receptions for 531 yards (6.8 avg.) and one score. • Although the Spartans lost Bell, MSU returns fifth-year senior quarterback Andrew Maxwell, who ranked among MSU’s Top 10 single-season leaders in pass attempts (second with 446), pass completions (fourth with 234), passing yards (seventh with 2,606) and total offense (eighth with 2,500 yards) during his first year as a starter. Maxwell completed 53 percent of his passes (234-of-446) for 2,606 yards, 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions and had six 200-yard passing games in 2012. He ranked fourth in the Big Ten in passing (200.5 yards per game) and sixth in total offense (192.3 ypg.). • After having to replace nearly its entire receiving corps in 2012, Michigan State will return four of its top six reception leaders in 2013. Keith Mumphery (515 yards) led the team with 42 receptions last season, followed by Bennie Fowler, who had 41 for a team-high 524 receiving yards. Tony Lippett (36 catches for 392 yards) and Aaron Burbridge (29 catches for 364 yards) also return for the Spartans. Last season, Michigan State was the only team in the Big Ten to have six players with at least 29 receptions. • Based on cumulative opposition, Michigan State’s 2012 schedule ranked as the Big Ten’s toughest and nation’s fourth-most difficult, according to NCAA figures. MSU’s regular-season opponents had a combined record of 78-48 (.619) against other NCAA Bowl Subdivision teams. The Spartans went 4-4 (.500) in games played against bowl-bound teams. • Michigan State lost five Big Ten games in 2012 by a combined total of 13 points, including one in double overtime (Iowa) and two within the last 10 seconds of regulation (Michigan, Nebraska). During one stretch, MSU had seven-straight games decided by four points or fewer, the longest such streak in school history and the longest by an FBS team since at least 1996. • Michigan State has compiled a 44-17 record (.721) in games played against non-conference opponents since 1999. Mark Dantonio is 21-9 (.700) against non-conference opponents, including a 16-2 record (.889) in Spartan Stadium. Overall, the Spartans have won 27 of their last 37 non-league games (.722). • Eleven Spartans received 2012 All-Big Ten recognition on first team, second team or honorable mention. First-team All-Big Ten selections included: RB Le’Veon Bell (coaches and media), DB Johnny Adams (coaches), LB Max Bullough (coaches), DB Darqueze Dennard (coaches) and P Mike Sadler (coaches). The five first-team selections were the most for Michigan State since 1999.

DANTONIO ANNOUNCES RESTRUCTURING OF COACHING STAFF – • Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio announced on March 4 the hiring of Jim Bollman and also the restructuring of his staff for the 2013 season. 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), will be the co-offensive coordinator, while also coaching the tight ends. • Defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi, the architect of the Big Ten’s top defense the past two seasons, was promoted to assistant head coach. Narduzzi enters his seventh year as Michigan State’s defensive coordinator in 2013. • Dave Warner, who coached the Spartan quarterbacks for the last six seasons, was promoted to co-offensive coordinator, filling the position left by Dan Roushar, who was named running backs coach for the New Orleans Saints in February. In addition to his new role as co-offensive coordinator, Warner will now coach the running backs. • Brad Salem, who has been the running backs coach for the past three seasons and also serves as the program’s recruiting coordinator, will now coach the quarterbacks. • Ron Burton, a 21-year coaching veteran who also played four seasons in the NFL, was named the defensive line coach on Feb. 8. Burton has spent the past 10 seasons as the defensive line coach at Air Force. • For complete bios on all of the assistant coaches, please visit msuspartans.com or pages 72-78 of the spring prospectus.

MARK DANTONIO: PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS – • Seventh-year head coach Mark Dantonio owns a 51-28 (.646) record at Michigan State. He already ranks among MSU’s all-time leaders in career wins (sixth) and winning percentage (sixth). • Michigan State is 15-9 (.625) in Big Ten road games under Dantonio, including a 9-3 record (.750) since 2010. • A trademark of his Michigan State teams has been their ability to produce wins late in the regular season. Under Dantonio, Michigan State has compiled a 14-5 record (.737) in November. His teams have won eight of the last 10 games in November (3-0 in 2010; 4-0 in 2011; and 1-2 in 2012). In 2012, MSU lost back-to-back games (Nebraska and Northwestern) in November for the first time since 2006 when the Spartans dropped three in a row. In the four seasons (2003-06) prior to Dantonio’s arrival, MSU went just 2-11 (.154) in November. • Dantonio recorded 51 wins from 2007-12, the most by a Spartan head coach in his first six seasons (“Biggie” Munn ranks second, with 45 wins from 1947-1952). • Dantonio is the first head coach in MSU history to win at least nine games three times in his first five seasons (9 wins in 2008; back-to-back 11-win seasons in 2010 and 2011). • Dantonio has won at least nine games in a season three times (9 in 2008, 11 in 2010, 11 in 2011), tying him with the most seasons of at least nine wins of any coach in MSU history (“Biggie” Munn, 1951, 1952, 1953; Duffy Daugherty, 1955, 1965, 1966). • Since 2007, Dantonio has helped produce 20 First-Team All-Big Ten selections, four consensus First-Team All-Americans (2008: RB Javon Ringer; 2009-10: LB Greg Jones; and 2011: DT Jerel Worthy) and 13 NFL Draft picks, including six in 2012. It marked the most NFL Draft selections for the Spartans since seven players were taken in 2000. • 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 five seasons, nearly 80 percent (72 of 91) of his Michigan State players who have completed their eligibility have earned their undergraduate degrees. In addition, 70 Spartans have earned Academic All-Big Ten honors, including four Academic All-Americans (2009: Blair White, first team; 2011-12: Mike Sadler, second team; 2012: Max Bullough, second team). • Under Dantonio, Michigan State has produced a 31-11 record (.738) in home games. The Spartans have won 16 of their last 21 home games. At 2-5, MSU finished the 2012 season with a losing record at home for only the 10th time in Spartan Stadium history and the first time since 2006 (also went 2-5). With its 20-3 victory on Sept. 15, Notre Dame snapped MSU’s 15-game home winning streak - the fifth-longest in school history. • Dantonio has led Michigan 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).

4 2013 MICHIGAN STATE SPRING FOOTBALL

2013 SPARTAN SPRING FOOTBALL SPARTAN DEFENSE ONE OF THE TOP IN THE NATION – • Michigan State has led the Big Ten in total defense and rushing defense the past two seasons. • The Spartan defense ranked among the NCAA FBS Top 10 in eight categories in 2012: 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.), thirddown 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 third-down defense). • In 2012, the Spartans surrendered 16 offensive touchdowns (six rushing, 10 passing) – the second-fewest allowed in the NCAA FBS. Only Notre Dame (15) permitted fewer TDs. MSU only allowed five offensive touchdowns in the second half in 2012 (Ohio State, Iowa, two by Nebraska, and Northwestern). • MSU also ranked tied for third in the nation in rushing touchdowns allowed (6), along with Rutgers and Utah State. Notre Dame ranked first (4), followed by BYU (5). • Michigan State allowed its opponents just 31 trips into the red zone – tied for the fourth fewest in the NCAA FBS. Of those 31 trips into the red zone, opponents scored just 10 touchdowns – the fewest TDs allowed in the nation. • Michigan State led the Big Ten and ranked eighth in the NCAA FBS in rushing defense, allowing just 98.6 yards per game. The season rushing average (98.6 ypg.) marked one of the top defensive efforts in Spartan history (10th-fewest allowed). The last time MSU surrendered less than 100 yards rushing per game in a season came in 1999 (76.2 ypg.). • The Spartans led the Big Ten and ranked No. 9 in the NCAA FBS in scoring defense, allowing just 16.3 points per game. The last time MSU permitted a lower scoring average came in 1989 (13.6 ppg.). • Michigan State led the conference and ranked No. 4 in the NCAA FBS in total defense, permitting just 274.4 yards per game, which was the lowest season average (total defense) since 1987 (241.0 ypg.). • Michigan State held its opponents scoreless in 23 of 52 quarters (44 percent). In addition, the Spartans forced their opponents to go three-and-out on 68 of 167 possessions (41 percent; 5.23 per game – fourth in the NCAA FBS ). • Michigan State’s defense allowed just 74 points in the second half/overtime last season (five touchdowns, 13 field goals). The Spartans shut out three opponents in the second half (Boise State, Eastern Michigan, Indiana). • Michigan State held four opponents (Boise State, Central Michigan, Michigan, Minnesota) without an offensive touchdown in 2012. • Michigan State allowed only 85 points in its six games played away from Spartan Stadium (14.2 points per game) in 2012: 7 by Central Michigan, 27 by Indiana, 12 by Michigan, 13 by Wisconsin, 10 by Minnesota and 16 by TCU. Interception returns for touchdowns (by CMU and Minnesota) accounted for 14 of those 85 points. • The Spartan coaching staff was adept at making halftime adjustments, as MSU blanked 10 of its 13 opponents in the third quarter in 2012. MSU outscored its 13 opponents, 57-27 (+30 margin), in the third quarter. • In the 17-13 season-opening win over No. 24 Boise State, the Spartans held the Broncos without an offensive touchdown for the first time since 1997. They also limited the nation’s highest scoring offense since 2000 to 206 yards of total offense and 37 rushing yards, both lows in the Coach Chris Petersen era at BSU; the 13 points scored are the third fewest under Petersen. • Since the beginning of 2011, Michigan State has held 15 opponents under 100 rushing yards (seven in 2011; eight in 2012), which ranks fifth most in the NCAA FBS (Alabama: 21; Florida State: 19; Stanford: 17; LSU: 16). In addition, MSU has held eight opponents under 50 yards rushing (three times in 2011; five in 2012) since 2011. • Since the beginning of the 2010 season, Michigan State’s defense has held 10 opponents to less than 10 points. • Michigan State has forced at least one turnover in 62 of 79 games over the last six seasons (78 percent of the games played since 2007).

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Le’Veon Bell ran for 210 yards on 44 carries, helping No. 13 Michigan State outlast No. 24 Boise State 17-13. The junior’s second touchdown of the night - a 5-yard run with 8:12 remaining - helped the Spartans avoid an upset on a night Bell outgained the Broncos all by himself. After Bell’s touchdown put the Spartans ahead, the Broncos drove to the Michigan State 42, but Joe Southwick’s pass on fourth-and-2 was broken up. The Spartans then ran off the final 6:32. Boise State was sluggish in its first game after losing standouts Kellen Moore and Doug Martin from last season’s explosive offense. The Broncos’ only touchdown came on Jeremy Ioane’s 43-yard interception return in the second quarter. Michigan State held Boise State without an offensive touchdown for the first time since the Broncos were shut out by Washington State, 58-0, on Sept. 27, 1997. The 13 points marked the Broncos’ second-lowest point total under Chris Petersen (10 vs. Washington in 2007), and the 37 rushing yards and 206 yards of total offense for BSU were both lows in the Petersen era. Bell became Michigan State’s undisputed top running back when Edwin Baker left to enter the NFL Draft after last season. His 44 carries more than doubled his previous career high of 20, and he also had six receptions for 55 yards. The Spartans outgained Boise State 461 yards to 206 but turned the ball over four times. The Broncos had won six straight against BCS-conference teams. Michigan State leaned on Bell, especially after new starting quarterback Andrew Maxwell threw three first-half interceptions. Maxwell finished 22-of-38 for 248 yards. Southwick, replacing Moore at quarterback, went 15-of-31 for 169 yards with an interception. Bell started Michigan State’s go-ahead drive with a 7-yard run and later caught a pass for 11 yards. He even blocked a pass rusher to allow Maxwell to find Dion Sims for an 18-yard pass on third down that put the ball at the Boise State 7. Two plays later, the Spartans had the lead. Boise State looked overmatched at the start. After a quick three-and-out, the Broncos punted and let Michigan State drive 60 yards in 12 plays for a 7-0 lead on Bell’s 1-yard touchdown run. The Spartans never really took control, though. Maxwell completed his first four passes, but his slant attempt was dropped by Tony Lippett right into the arms of Boise State’s Jamar Taylor. The interception led to a field goal, which the Spartans answered when Dan Conroy made a 50-yarder to give Michigan State a 10-3 lead. In the second quarter, the Broncos drove to the Michigan State 9-yard line, but Southwick’s third-down pass was deflected by Isaiah Lewis and intercepted by fellow defensive back RJ Williamson, who was on his back in the end zone. The Spartans quickly returned the favor when Maxwell’s screen pass bounced off intended receiver Larry Caper right to Ioane, who returned the interception for a touchdown. Boise State took a 13-10 lead on Michael Frisina’s 19-yard field goal with 4:23 left in the half.

SCORE BY QUARTERS Michigan State (2-0) Central Michigan (1-1)

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) - For a second straight week, Michigan State held an opponent without an offensive touchdown as the 11th-ranked Spartans routed Central Michigan 41-7. William Gholston had a sack, and Michigan State intercepted two passes and stopped the Chippewas three times on fourth down. Andrew Maxwell threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns for the Spartans, who scored 10 points in the final minute of the first half to take a 24-0 lead. Michigan State was playing at Central Michigan for the first time, part of a decade-long series of games against the Chippewas, Eastern Michigan and Western Michigan. Le’Veon Bell had 70 yards on 18 carries with two touchdowns, shouldering a lighter load after carrying 44 times for 210 yards in Michigan State’s opener against Boise State. The only two touchdowns the Spartans have allowed this season have some on interception returns. This was the first road game of the season for Michigan State, but there were plenty of green-clad fans in attendance about 70 miles from the Spartans’ campus. Central Michigan beat Michigan State as recently as 2009, but the Spartans won the matchup 45-7 last year and this one wasn’t close either. Bell carried Michigan State at times in a 17-13 win over Boise State, and he scored on runs of 1 and 7 yards in the first half to give the Spartans a 14-0 lead. But it wasn’t until late in the second quarter that the game slipped away from the Chippewas for good. Maxwell threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Dion Sims with 57 seconds left, and Central Michigan’s Ryan Radcliff threw an interception moments later, setting up a Michigan State field goal. Maxwell threw a 7-yard scoring pass to Bennie Fowler early in the third. Nick Hill’s 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth made it 41-0. Central Michigan’s only points came on Jason Wilson’s 55-yard interception return for a touchdown off Michigan State back-up quarterback Connor Cook.

SCORE BY QUARTERS Notre Dame (3-0) Michigan State (2-1)

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Everett Golson threw a touchdown pass and ran for a score in the first half to help No. 20 Notre Dame beat No. 10 Michigan State 20-3. The Fighting Irish snapped a six-game losing streak against ranked teams and beat a Top-10 opponent for the first time in seven years. The Spartans had won 15 straight at home. The streak included a win over the Irish in 2010 on a fake field goal in overtime. Michigan State had its worst showing on offense at home since losing 20-3 to Central Michigan in 1991. Golson was 14-of-32 for 178 yards and a TD, a 36-yard pass to John Goodman. He ran for a 6-yard TD early in the second quarter to give Notre Dame a 14-0 lead. Andrew Maxwell was 23-of-45 for 187 yards and Le’Veon Bell had 77 yards rushing on 19 carries for the Spartans. The Irish shook off a sloppy start that included George Atkinson running into a teammate on a kickoff return, a false start and a timeout before their first snap. Golson missed an opportunity to connect with wide-open receiver Chris Brown on what would’ve been a TD, but the first-year starter made up for it with his arm and legs. On Notre Dame’s second drive, Golson eluded a rush as he rolled to the right and threw back across the field on a 36-yard TD pass to Goodman for a 7-0 lead. Maxwell threw a pass on the ensuing possession into the end zone that Bennie Fowler dropped in what proved to be the Spartans best shot to score more than a field goal. Maxwell didn’t have as much time to pass as he did in wins over Boise State and Central Michigan, and Bell couldn’t run all over the Irish as he did in the opener against the Broncos. Maxwell was sacked three times in the second quarter alone - after not getting sacked in his first two games - and one of those hits behind the line forced a punt that gave Notre Dame good field position. Golson took advantage, scoring on a 6-yard run on a play that was designed to be a pass to cap a 51-yard drive and give the Irish a 14-0 lead early in the second quarter. Michigan State responded with a 13-play drive that ended with Dan Conroy making a 50-yard field goal to match his career high and make it 14-3 late in the first half. The third quarter included four punts for each team in a defense-controlled game. The Spartans had a shot to force Notre Dame to punt early in the fourth, but Cierre Wood went left and cut back to the right on a 26-yard gain. Kyle Brindza made a 29-yard field goal at the end of a time-consuming drive that took 6:21 off the clock and gave the Irish a 17-3 lead. Michigan State’s slim comeback hopes were dashed when Bell was going out of bounds and his lateral was caught by linebacker Manti Te’o with 4:20 left in the game to set up Brindza’s 47-yard field goal that made it 20-3. Te’o had a game-high 12 tackles, one for a loss, and broke up two passes, playing just a few days after the deaths of his girlfriend, who had a long battle with leukemia, and his grandmother. Notre Dame won its second straight in the series by more than a TD after nine of the previous 11 were closely contested games.

SCORE BY QUARTERS Eastern Michigan (0-4) Michigan State (3-1)

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Le’Veon Bell rushed for 253 yards and a touchdown but No. 21 Michigan State didn’t feel much like celebrating after the Spartans struggled to put away winless Eastern Michigan. Trailing for most of three quarters, Michigan State beat the Eagles 23-7. Dan Conroy kicked three field goals for the Spartans, who had failed to score a TD for more than seven quarters before Andrew Maxwell hit tight end Dion Sims on a 10-yard pass with 7:19 left. Maxwell was 16-for-29 for 159 yards and wasn’t sacked or intercepted. But Michigan State struggled mightily until he finally found Sims three times for 73 yards in the fourth quarter. The Spartans finished with a 428-183 edge in total offense. Bell carried 36 times and also took over as his team’s primary punt returner in the second quarter. The Eagles came as close as they ever have to beating a ranked team, equaling a 16-point loss at Ball State in 2008. This time, they led 7-6 until 1:11 was left in the third quarter. Tyler Benz made his first start at quarterback for Eastern Michigan and was 13for-26 for 137 yards and a touchdown. He hit Donald Scott for a 23-yard score late in the second quarter to give his team the lead. But Scott dropped what would have been a 44-yard TD in the fourth quarter. Conroy opened the scoring in the second quarter with a 35-yard field goal, cut the deficit to 7-6 with a 44-yarder early in the third quarter and put his team ahead to stay with a 35-yarder. The Spartans made just enough plays on defense until the offense arrived. Michigan State’s defense held its fourth-straight opponent to 300 yards or less. But it wasn’t able to force a turnover for the second-straight week until Denicos Allen knocked the ball away from Javonti Greene and Jairus Jones recovered at the Eagles 36 in the third quarter. The Spartans held Eastern Michigan to 2-for-14 success on third down. The Eagles managed just 46 rushing yards, 1.6 per attempt.

SCORE BY QUARTERS Ohio State (5-0, 1-0) Michigan State (3-2, 0-1)

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Andrew Maxwell passed for 269 yards and one touchdown, but the 14th-ranked Buckeyes held off the 20th-ranked Spartans 17-16, giving Urban Meyer a win in his first Big Ten game as Buckeyes coach. Braxton Miller threw for 179 yards and ran for 136. He put Ohio State ahead 17-13 with a 63-yard touchdown pass to Devin Smith in the third quarter, and the Buckeyes’ maligned defense held Le’Veon Bell and the Michigan State running game in check. Michigan State took a 13-10 advantage in the third on a terrific individual effort by Keith Mumphery. With the ball on the Ohio State 29 after a personal foul call on the Buckeyes, Mumphery took Andrew Maxwell’s short pass and eluded four tacklers before dragging a couple more Buckeyes into the end zone. Still, it wasn’t enough and Michigan State’s lead didn’t last long. Miller barely picked up a first down with a run on third-and-1, then lofted a deep pass on the next play to Smith, who beat Johnny Adams along the right sideline to put Ohio State ahead to stay. Miller turned the ball over three times in Michigan State territory, including a fumble early in the fourth - but the Buckeyes actually caught a break on that play. The ball bounced right to Kurtis Drummond of the Spartans, who began running down the right sideline before the play was blown dead and Miller was ruled down. The call was reversed after a review, giving Michigan State the ball at its own 32 but the Buckeyes were saved from a big return that would almost surely have followed if the call had been correct to begin with. The Buckeyes then appeared to have stopped the Spartans when Maxwell underthrew a pass on fourth-and-1 from the Ohio State 44, but Travis Howard was called for defensive holding on the opposite side of the field, keeping the drive alive. Dan Conroy’s 48-yard field goal pulled Michigan State within a point with 7:07 remaining. Miller remained down holding his left knee after his fumble but was able to come back the next time Ohio State had the ball. The Spartans forced a three-and-out anyway and took over at their own 20 with 5:39 left, down 17-16. They could manage only one first down before having to punt, and they never got the ball back. Bell ran for only 45 yards on 17 carries for the Spartans. Ohio State had been ranked last in the conference in defense coming in. Ohio State drove 75 yards in eight plays to open the game, taking a 7-0 lead on Jordan Hall’s 1-yard scoring run. Miller had runs of 20 and 13 yards on the drive, but he was hit along the sideline at the end of the latter one and was shaken up. He had to leave the game but was back for his team’s next possession. The Spartans answered immediately with a 34-yard field goal by Conroy, and that was all the scoring for the half. Miller threw an interception and lost a fumble in second quarter, but Conroy missed a 42-yard attempt in the final minute.

SCORE BY QUARTERS Michigan State (4-2, 1-1) Indiana (2-3, 0-2)

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Andrew Maxwell passed for 290 yards and two touchdowns, and Michigan State rallied from a 17-point deficit to defeat Indiana 31-27. Aaron Burbridge caught eight passes for 134 yards and Le’Veon Bell ran for 121 yards and two touchdowns on 37 carries for the Spartans. Cameron Coffman passed for 282 yards and three touchdowns and Shane Wynn had 12 catches for 70 yards for the Hoosiers, who led 27-17 at the end of the third quarter. Indiana could have given second-year coach Kevin Wilson his first conference win, but the Hoosiers went three-and-out on critical back-to-back possessions in the fourth quarter. Michigan State, which gave up nearly 200 yards in the first quarter, held Indiana to 37 yards and two first downs in the second half. Indiana started Coffman over Nate Sudfeld at quarterback, and the Hoosiers’ nohuddle offense rolled right down the field against one of the nation’s best defenses. Coffman fired a 19-yard touchdown pass to Stephen Houston 77 seconds into the game. Two possessions later, Mitch Ewald’s 32-yard field goal made it 10-0 Hoosiers. After Michigan State was called for a roughing-the-punter penalty, Coffman took advantage with a 21-yard touchdown pass to Ted Bolser with 38 seconds left in the first quarter. Michigan State finally got it going in the second quarter. Bell scored from 2 yards out to cut Indiana’s lead to 17-7. Maxwell followed with a 15-yard touchdown pass to running back Larry Caper to trim Indiana’s lead to 17-14 with 6:26 left in the first half. Indiana came right back when Coffman found Wynn for a 17-yard touchdown pass. Indiana recovered an onside kick, and a 19-yard field goal by Ewald gave Indiana a 27-14 lead at halftime. Coffman completed 23-of-30 passes for 256 yards in the first half. Michigan State got the ball first in the second half, and a 46-yard field goal by Dan Conroy cut Indiana’s lead to 27-17. Michigan State went for it on fourth down at the Indiana 2 and Bell got a yard on a play that was reviewed. Two plays later, Bell scored from the 1, cutting Indiana’s lead to 27-24 with 7:49 to play. Coffman missed on three straight passes, and Michigan State got the ball back 20 seconds after the previous score. On the third play of the possession, Maxwell connected with Bennie Fowler for a 36-yard touchdown pass to give the Spartans a 31-27 lead. Indiana went three-and-out again and punted. Michigan State’s Nick Hill fumbled the fair catch but fell on it, and Indiana got a personal-foul penalty, giving the Spartans the ball at the 50. Michigan State ran out the clock, clinching the game on a fourth-and-1 conversion by Bell on the Indiana 9-yard line in the final minute.

SCORE BY QUARTERS Iowa (4-2, 2-0) Michigan State (4-3, 1-2)

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Mark Weisman ran for 116 yards and scored a tying touchdown in the final minute of regulation, and Iowa went on to beat Michigan State 19-16 in double overtime. Mike Meyer kicked field goals in both overtimes, including a 42-yarder in the second that gave the Hawkeyes their first lead of the game. Iowa then won it when Andrew Maxwell’s deflected pass was intercepted by Greg Castillo. Le’Veon Bell ran for 140 yards and a touchdown for Michigan State, but the Spartans couldn’t hold on late. Iowa drove 68 yards in nine plays and tied it at 13 on Weisman’s 5-yard scoring run with 55 seconds left in the fourth quarter. The Hawkeyes appeared to be in trouble late in the fourth when they faced secondand-26 from their own 16, but James Vandenberg found Keenan Davis single covered along the right sideline for a 35-yard gain. Weisman’s 37-yard run on third-and-6 gave Iowa the ball at the Michigan State 8 and set up the tying TD, which also came on third down. The teams traded short field goals in the first overtime. Michigan State could have won it with a touchdown in the second, but Maxwell’s pass appeared to be tipped at the line of scrimmage, then deflected off the hands of wide receiver Keith Mumphery and was intercepted by Castillo. It was the first interception for Maxwell since he threw three in the season opener against Boise State. On a rainy day at Spartan Stadium, Vandenberg threw an early interception when his pass was tipped by defensive lineman William Gholston and picked off by Denicos Allen. Michigan State took over at the Iowa 26 and gave the ball to Bell four straight times. His 14-yard touchdown run made it 7-0. The Hawkeyes trailed 10-0 in the second quarter when Jordan Cotton had a kickoff return for a touchdown nullified by an illegal block. Iowa still ended up with the ball near midfield and drove for a field goal. Michigan State missed a chance to score in the final seconds of the half because of a miscommunication. Maxwell completed a 19-yard pass to Mumphery to the Iowa 32 with 6 seconds left. The clock stopped momentarily because of the first down, but there was mass confusion among the Spartans, who needed only to stop the clock with a spike and bring their field-goal unit out.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Brendan Gibbons made a 38-yard field goal with 5 seconds left, lifting No. 23 Michigan to a 12-10 win over Michigan State. The Wolverines beat the Spartans for the first time since 2007 to avoid a schoolrecord, five-game losing streak in the series. Denard Robinson threw a 20-yard pass to Drew Dileo to set up the game-winning kick. Michigan State’s Dan Conroy made a go-ahead field goal with 5:48 left after a fake punt kept the drive alive. The Spartans forced the Wolverines to punt from midfield after going ahead, but couldn’t stop them when it mattered most in the final minute. Robinson, who had been shut down in his two previous starts against the Spartans, made just enough plays to help Michigan win. He was 14-of-29 for 163 yards with an interception, a harmless turnover on an up-for-grabs pass at the end of the first half, and ran for 96 yards on 20 carries. Dileo was his top target, catching four passes for 92 yards to set up scores on a day in which the defenses for both teams were dominant. Michigan State’s quarterback, Andrew Maxwell, played relatively well, but he threw an interception to Jordan Kovacs that helped the Wolverines take a 9-7 lead early in the fourth quarter. Maxwell was 21-of-34 for 192 yards with a TD - a 2-yard toss to Paul Lang - that put the Spartans ahead 7-6 midway through the third quarter. Le’Veon Bell, who was averaging 131 yards rushing a game, had just 68 yards rushing on 26 carries and gained no more than 8 yards on any attempts against a defense designed to stop him. Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio, who called a fake field goal in overtime to beat Notre Dame two years ago, pulled another play out of his bag of tricks at the right time. The Wolverines were completely fooled when punter Mike Sadler took a snap from the Michigan State 23 on a fourth-and-9 and ran to the right, all alone, on a 26-yard gain that set up a go-ahead field goal. That play, though, was not enough to beat Michigan. The Wolverines led 6-0 at halftime. In the first half, Robinson was held to just 17 yards rushing on 12 carries, and his longest went for 5 yards. He was 8-of-13 for 108 yards in the first half, connecting on a 22- and 15-yard passes to Dileo to set up Gibbons’ 24-yard field goal early in the second quarter and a 35-yarder to Dileo that led to Gibbons’ 48-yard kick late in the first half.

SCORE BY QUARTERS Michigan State (5-4, 2-3) Wisconsin (6-3, 3-2)

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Andrew Maxwell threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Bennie Fowler in overtime, giving Michigan State a 16-13 victory and snapping Wisconsin’s 21game home winning streak. The Spartans have now won four of the last six against Wisconsin, though this was their first win at Camp Randall since 2001. It was the first loss at home for the Badgers since Oct. 17, 2009, and only their fourth since Bret Bielema became coach in 2006. Only LSU, with 22-straight victories, had a longer home winning streak than Wisconsin. Wisconsin and Michigan State have been two of the Big Ten’s best in recent years. No school has won more conference games since 2010, and they’ve had a hand in the last two Big Ten Championships. They shared it in 2010, and Wisconsin beat the Spartans in the inaugural Big Ten title game last year. Their rivalry has been one of the highlights of the conference season, with the previous six games decided by all of 31 points. This was another close one, but it wasn’t exactly riveting. After rushing for 804 yards in its last two games, Wisconsin managed a measly 19 yards rushing, its fewest in five years. Montee Ball, who had averaged better than 125 yards rushing in his last three games, was held to 46 and didn’t get close to the end zone. Joel Stave was 9-of-11 for 127 yards, including a 31-yard touchdown pass to Jacob Pedersen that gave Wisconsin a 7-0 lead early in the second quarter. But Stave injured his left shoulder when he was sacked on the opening play of the second half and did not return. The Spartans struggled with penalties and negative plays all afternoon, and Wisconsin seemed to have the game in control late despite its own issues. Wisconsin cornerback Marcus Cromartie forced a fumble when he hit Lawrence Thomas hard, and Warren Herring recovered it at the Michigan State 18. But just as MSU had earlier in the game, the Badgers failed to muster any positive yardage and had to settle for Kyle French’s 39-yard field goal after a drive that went minus-3 yards. Maxwell responded by driving the Spartans down the field, capping an 8-of-9 performance with a 5-yard pass to Le’Veon Bell, who bulldozed his way into the end zone to tie the game at 10 with a minute left. Michigan State won the toss in overtime and deferred. The Badgers scored on a 43-yard field goal after Isaiah Lewis broke up Danny O’Brien’s pass to Pedersen on third-and-long. The Spartans kept it simple, handing the ball off to Bell repeatedly before Maxwell found Fowler for the winning score.

SCORE BY QUARTERS Nebraska (7-2, 4-1) Michigan State (5-5, 2-4)

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Darqueze Dennard intercepted a pass and appeared to run it back for a 96-yard touchdown - then the return was negated by a penalty. Later, Michigan State allowed a 38-yard pass on fourth-and-10 when a stop would have put the game out of reach. Finally, when Dennard seemed to have broken up a third-down throw to the end zone, he was called for pass interference. At that point, the Spartans had given No. 21 Nebraska one chance too many. Taylor Martinez threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jamal Turner with 6 seconds left, giving Nebraska a 28-24 win over Michigan State that kept the Cornhuskers tied with Michigan atop the Big Ten Legends Division. The Cornhuskers scored two touchdowns in the final 7:02 to erase a 24-14 deficit. The winning score was set up by a pass interference call in the end zone on Dennard, which gave Nebraska the ball at the 5 when the Cornhuskers would have otherwise had to attempt a tying field goal. Le’Veon Bell ran for 188 yards and two touchdowns for Michigan State. Martinez rushed for 205 yards and two touchdowns, becoming Nebraska’s career leader in total offense. Nebraska is unbeaten in seven meetings with Michigan State, but the Cornhuskers never led this one until the end, after they took over at their own 20 with 1:20 remaining and went 80 yards in nine plays. Martinez kept the drive alive with a 38-yard completion to Kyler Reed to the Michigan State 20 on fourth-and-10. On third down from the 20, Martinez threw down the right sideline for Kenny Bell, but Dennard was there in coverage. It looked like Dennard turned around in plenty of time to make a play on the ball, but he may have impeded Bell’s progress with his right arm. The flag came out, giving Nebraska a new set of downs. Martinez found Turner on an out pattern at the left edge of the end zone. Dennard’s penalty wasn’t the only one that cost Michigan State. With the score 24-14, Dennard intercepted a pass at his own 4 and weaved his way back for what looked like a long touchdown return. It was nullified by a personal foul during the return on Michigan State’s Johnny Adams. The Spartans ended up having to punt, and Martinez made it 24-21 with his 35-yard touchdown run with 7:02 to play. Less than a minute later, Michigan State was punting again. The Spartans stopped Nebraska on fourth down near midfield with 3:12 remaining, but the Cornhuskers had timeouts remaining and forced one more punt - on fourth-and-2 from the Nebraska 39. After a low snap, Mike Sadler kicked the ball into the end zone, giving Nebraska plenty of breathing room to start the winning drive.

2012 GAME RECAPS GAME 11 • NORTHWESTERN 23, MICHIGAN STATE 20 Game 11 vs. Northwestern Nov. 17, 2012 • East Lansing, Mich. Spartan Stadium • Att: 75,101

SCORE BY QUARTERS Northwestern (8-3, 4-3) Michigan State (5-6, 2-5)

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Jeff Budzien kicked a 27-yard field goal with 7:30 remaining, and Northwestern was able to hold on to this fourth-quarter lead, beating Michigan State 23-20. Trevor Siemian threw for 165 yards, including a 41-yard pass to Dan Vitale that helped set up the winning kick. The Wildcats then forced a punt near midfield, and by the time Michigan State got the ball back at its own 20, there was only 1:29 left. Northwestern lost fourth-quarter leads in gut-wrenching losses to Penn State, Nebraska and Michigan, but this time Michigan State’s Andrew Maxwell threw four-straight incompletions to seal the Spartans’ fate. It was Northwestern’s first win over Michigan State since 2007. The Wildcats spoiled Michigan State’s home finale despite what was announced as an upper extremity injury to running back Venric Mark, who didn’t play in the second half. Siemian and Kain Colter split time at quarterback for the Wildcats. Colter went 13-of-20 for 81 yards and a touchdown. Northwestern led 13-5 early in the third quarter after David Nwabuisi returned an interception 43 yards for a touchdown. Maxwell seemed shaken up on the play, but he was able to keep playing and quickly led the Spartans on a sharp 65-yard drive that ended with his 15-yard scoring pass to Aaron Burbridge. A 2-point conversion pass to Keith Mumphery tied it at 13. Colter’s 6-yard touchdown pass to Tim Riley gave Northwestern a 20-13 lead, but the Spartans tied it again on a 6-yard scoring pass from Maxwell to Tony Lippett with 9:22 left in the fourth. Michigan State lost the ball twice inside the Northwestern 5-yard line in the first half. A fumble on the snap gave the Wildcats the ball at their own 2 late in the first quarter, but Colter was hit in the end zone by Max Bullough and William Gholston for a safety that made it 3-2. Michigan State led 5-3 in the second and had the ball at the Northwestern 1, but star running back Le’Veon Bell was dropped for a loss of 3 on fourth down. The Wildcats took a 6-5 lead into halftime when Budzien made a 43-yard field goal in the final minute of the quarter, and Michigan State’s Dan Conroy missed from 37 at the other end.

SCORE BY QUARTERS Michigan State (6-6, 3-5) Minnesota (6-6, 2-6)

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Le’Veon Bell rumbled for a career-high 266 yards and a fourthquarter touchdown to put the game away, leading Michigan State to a 26-10 victory over Minnesota to secure a spot in a bowl game. Bell carried 35 times on a cold afternoon and Dan Conroy made four of his five fieldgoal attempts, three of them from 43 yards or longer, to help the Spartans wear down the Gophers. Aaron Hill’s 33-yard interception return for a touchdown gave Minnesota a lead it kept for more than 18 minutes in the first half, but Jordan Wettstein’s season-long 48-yard field goal was the only offensive score for the Gophers, who had a season-low 96 total yards - and just 4 yards rushing. Philip Nelson threw three interceptions, two by Johnny Adams, and was replaced in the fourth quarter by Max Shortell, who was picked off too. Despite the single-digit margin that lasted until 7:25 was left, when Bell patiently waited for an opening around left end and jogged across the goal line, this was downright domination for the Spartans considering how close all their games were this season. They lost five times in conference play by a total of 13 points, and their other two Big Ten wins were by seven points combined. For all the work the defense did to keep the Gophers competitive, there were two costly lapses. In the second quarter, Andrew Maxwell went 5-for-7 for 74 yards to lead an 82-yard touchdown drive capped by a 40-yard catch and run for the score by Bennie Fowler off a tipped pass. Fowler finished with seven receptions and 101 yards. Then there was the clinching march, when Bell ran eight straight times to close from 8 yards out and stretch the lead to 16 points. The junior became the seventh rusher in Spartans history to pass the 3,000-yard mark for his career. Maxwell was intercepted twice in the first half, including one by Brock Vereen in the end zone. Hill’s slick grab in the flat was the third pick returned for a touchdown against Maxwell this season. He has 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions this season. He went 13-for-29 for 143 yards.

SCORE BY QUARTERS TCU (7-6) Michigan State (7-6)

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Dan Conroy kicked a 47-yard field goal with 1:01 left, Le’Veon Bell ran for 145 yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown, and Michigan State rallied to beat TCU 17-16 in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. Michigan State labored through the first half before going on the longest touchdown drive in the school’s bowl history, a 90-yard march capped by freshman Connor Cook’s 15-yard TD pass to Aaron Burbridge in the third quarter. The Spartans recovered a muffed punt by TCU’s Skye Dawson at the 4-yard line midway through the fourth quarter and Bell scored two plays later by racing around left end for a 14-13 lead. TCU rallied to set up Jaden Overkrom for a 53-yard field goal with 2:42 left, but left Conroy too much time for his second straight postseason game-winner after beating Georgia with a 28-yard kick in the third overtime of last year’s Outback Bowl. Trevone Boykin threw for 201 yards on 13-of-29 passing with an interception for the Horned Frogs. TCU and Michigan State came to the desert with an awful lot of similarities. The Horned Frogs opened their first season in the Big 12 with four straight wins before losing four of their final six games. Michigan State started 4-2, then lost four of six down the stretch. Michigan State had the nation’s fourth-best defense and was 10th in scoring defense during the regular season. TCU was 18th in total defense and 10th against the run. The biggest difference between the teams was Bell. The junior was third nationally with 137.3 yards rushing per game and had 1,648 on the season, second-most in Michigan State history and 242 fewer than TCU had as a team. In the third quarter, the Spartans grinded out a 14-play scoring drive led by Cook, who replaced Andrew Maxwell for the second time in the game. They had their biggest play on a floating pass from Bell to fullback TyQuan Hammock (29 yards), then Cook threw his first career touchdown pass, a 15-yarder to Burbridge on a crossing route that cut TCU’s lead to 13-7. TCU had 30 yards of offense in the third quarter and continued to labor in the fourth before its last-ditch drive ended in the closing seconds.

SPARTAN COACHING STAFF MARK DANTONIO HEAD COACH SEVENTH SEASON

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 to a school-record six consecutive bowl appearances. In the past four seasons, MSU has recorded 27 Big Ten victories, the most of any team in the conference. The Spartans produced back-to-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 won the inaugural Big Ten Legends Divisions title in 2011. Dantonio has 33 years of collegiate coaching experience and coached in his 17th bowl game as the Spartans defeated TCU in the 2012 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl in Tempe, Ariz., leading MSU to back-toback bowl victories 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 participated in three New Year’s Day games as a head coach (2009 Capital One Bowl, 2011 Capital One Bowl, 2012 Outback Bowl). Dantonio owns a 51-28 record (.646) at Michigan State since his arrival in 2007, which marks the most wins by a Spartan head coach in his first six seasons. He has won at least nine games in a season three times (9 in 2008, school-record 11 in 2010, school-record 11 in 2011), tying him with the most seasons of at least nine wins of any coach in program history; he is also the first Spartan coach to accomplish that feat within his first five years. MSU’s 29 wins over the last three seasons ties for 13th most among NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision teams and second most in the Big Ten during that same period and is the winningest three-year stretch in school history. The Spartans have posted three consecutive winning seasons, a first for the program since recording six in a row from 1985-90. 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 five seasons, nearly 80 percent (72 of 91) of his Michigan State players who have completed their eligibility have earned their undergraduate degrees. Michigan State secured its third-straight winning campaign (7-6) in 2012 with a thrilling 13-point secondhalf comeback victory over TCU in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, defeating the Horned Frogs, 17-16. The Spartans placed five players on the All-Big Ten First Team in 2012, the most first-team selections for the program since 1999. Since 2007, Dantonio has helped produce 20 All-Big Ten first-team selections. A total of 11 Spartans received All-Big Ten recognition, 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 addition, MSU also led the Big Ten in six defensive categories (touchdowns allowed, total defense, scoring defense, pass efficiency defense, rushing defense and third-down defense). Seven starters, including first-team choices Johnny Adams (cornerback), Max Bullough (linebacker) and Darqueze Dennard (cornerback), earned All-Big Ten accolades. The Spartans are one of just five NCAA FBS schools, along with Alabama, Florida State, Florida and LSU, to rank among the Top 10 nationally in total defense the past two seasons. In addition, MSU and Alabama are the only two programs in the country to rank in the NCAA FBS Top 15 the past two seasons in total defense, rushing defense, passing defense and scoring defense. Michigan State defeated four bowl-bound teams in 2012, with victories over No. 24 Boise State, Central Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. The Spartans snapped Wisconsin’s 21-game home winning streak at Camp Randall Stadium on Oct. 27 with a 16-13 overtime victory against the Badgers. Michigan State became bowl eligible for a school-record sixth-straight season while playing the toughest schedule in the Big Ten and the fourth hardest in the FBS, according to NCAA figures, as MSU’s opponents compiled a 78-48 (.619) record during the regular season. In 2011, thanks to its 33-30 triple-overtime victory over Georgia in the 2012 Outback Bowl, Michigan State (11-3) 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). It also marked the third time in four years that MSU appeared in the final polls, as the

2013 MICHIGAN STATE SPRING FOOTBALL

Spartans ranked No. 24 (both polls; 9-4 record) at the conclusion of the 2008 season and No. 14 (both polls; 11-2 record) in 2010. Michigan State’s 11 wins in 2011 tied the school singleseason 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, improving to 14-2 in Big Ten play during the 2010 and 2011 seasons. 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 lastsecond, 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.

SPARTAN COACHING STAFF Defensive tackle Jerel Worthy earned consensus firstteam All-America honors, marking the fourth-straight year Michigan State had a consensus first-team AllAmerican (Javon Ringer: 2008; Greg Jones: 2009, 2010), establishing a school record. On the offensive side of the ball, quarterback Kirk Cousins and wide receiver B.J. Cunningham re-wrote the Michigan State record book. Cousins, the winningest quarterback in school history with 27 victories as a starter, finished his career as MSU’s alltime leader in touchdown passes (66), passing yards (9,131), completions (723), passing efficiency (146.1 rating), 200-yard passing games (26) and total offense (9,004 yards). He also set a single-season MSU record with 25 passing TDs in 2011. Cousins’ favorite target was Cunningham, who left East Lansing as Michigan State’s career leader in both receptions (218) and receiving yards (3,316). In his senior year, Cunningham tied a school record with 79 receptions and posted eight 100-yard receiving games, the most in an MSU single-season. The Spartans were rewarded for their excellent season as 19 players received All-Big Ten recognition on the first team, second team or honorable mention, including a school-record 11 on defense. The Spartans had four first-team All-Big Ten selections: cornerback Johnny Adams (coaches), offensive guard Joel Foreman (coaches and media), safety Trenton Robinson (media) and Worthy (coaches and media). Following the successful 2011 campaign, six Spartans were selected in the 2012 National Football League 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). A total of 13 Spartans have been drafted under Dantonio. Dantonio, who led Michigan State to a school-record 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 third-biggest 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. With successive wins over Minnesota, Purdue and Penn State to close out the regular season, the Spartans posted a perfect 3-0 record in November for the first time since 1999. 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. A total of 16 Spartans received All-Big Ten recognition on the first team, second team or honorable mention, including senior linebacker Greg Jones, senior punter Aaron Bates, sophomore running back Edwin Baker

and sophomore placekicker Dan Conroy, who each earned All-Big Ten first-team honors from the media. One of the top linebackers in school history, Jones was named a first-team consensus All-American for the second-straight season, becoming only the third Spartan to accomplish the feat. He also became just the seventh player in program history to receive firstteam All-Big Ten honors three times. Jones (New York Giants) and cornerback Chris L. Rucker (Indianapolis Colts) were selected in the sixth round of the 2011 National Football League Draft. Led by Jones and one of the most explosive offenses in the Big Ten, the Spartans earned their third consecutive bowl bid in 2009. A consensus first-team All-American, Jones became the first Spartan to win Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year accolades after recording 154 tackles, finishing first in the conference and third nationally in 2009. He also led the team and ranked among the national leaders in tackles for loss (14 for 69 yards) and sacks (9 for 53 yards). Jones was rated the No. 1 linebacker in the nation by CollegeFootballNews.com and earned the Linebacker Trophy (Linebacker of the Year) by the College Football Performance Awards. In addition, Worthy was named a Freshman AllAmerican, marking the third-straight year a Spartan landed on a Freshman All-America Team, and cornerback Jeremy Ware was chosen by the Oakland Raiders in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft. 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. Michigan State defeated five bowl-bound teams, with victories over Florida Atlantic, Notre Dame, Iowa, Northwestern and Wisconsin. The Spartans, who made their first New Year’s Day Bowl appearance in nine seasons (Capital One Bowl vs. Georgia), finished the season ranked No. 24 in both the Associated Press and USA Today Polls. Three Michigan State players were named first-team All-Big Ten by the league’s head coaches: senior running back Javon Ringer, senior safety Otis Wiley and Jones. A total of 15 Spartans received All-Big Ten recognition on the first team, second team or honorable mention. Ringer became MSU’s first consensus AllAmerican since 2004. 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. Dantonio became just the third first-year coach in Michigan State history to earn a postseason bowl bid, joining Saban (1995 Independence Bowl vs. LSU) and John L. Smith (2003 Alamo Bowl vs. Nebraska). Dantonio, who served as head coach at Cincinnati for three seasons prior to his return to East Lansing, became Michigan State University’s 24th head football coach on Nov. 27, 2006.

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.

The Spartans are one of just five NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision schools, along with Alabama, Florida State, Florida and LSU, to rank among the Top 10 nationally in total defense the past two seasons. In addition, MSU and Alabama are the only two programs in the country to rank in the NCAA FBS Top 15 the past two seasons in total defense, rushing defense, passing defense and scoring defense.

Warner has been a quarterbacks coach and/or offensive coordinator or passing game coordinator for 24 of his previous 29 seasons as a college assistant. This marks the second time in his career he will be an offensive coordinator, as he also held the same position at Connecticut for two seasons (19992000). He was also the passing game coordinator at Wyoming (1998) and Houston (2001-02).

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 third-down defense). Seven starters, including first-team choices Johnny Adams (cornerback), Max Bullough (linebacker) and Darqueze Dennard (cornerback), earned All-Big Ten accolades. During Narduzzi’s tenure at MSU, his players have earned All-Big Ten honors 48 times, including eight different first-team selections. The foundation of Michigan State’s defense is stopping the run, and Narduzzi’s unit once again proved it could stop the rush in 2012. The Spartans led the Big Ten and ranked eighth in the NCAA FBS in rushing defense, allowing just 98.6 yards per game, which also marked one of the top defensive efforts in Spartan history (10th-fewest allowed). Five teams (Boise State, Eastern Michigan, Wisconsin, Northwestern, Minnesota) posted their season lows in rushing against the Spartans, and MSU held eight opponents to under-100 yards rushing. MSU has finished in the top 25 nationally in rushing defense three of the past four seasons (24th in 2009; ninth in 2011; eighth in 2012). Since the beginning of 2011, Michigan State has held 15 opponents under 100 rushing yards (seven in 2011; eight in 2012), which ranks fifth most in the NCAA FBS. In 2011, Narduzzi’s defense led the Big Ten in rushing defense (100.5 yards per game), total defense (277.4 ypg.), interceptions (18) and third-down defense (.337). MSU also ranked among the NCAA FBS Top 20 in seven statistical categories: sixth in total defense, seventh in sacks, ninth in rushing defense, 10th in scoring defense, 11th in pass defense, 14th in tackles for loss and 18th in pass efficiency defense. Every single MSU starter on defense in 2011 - which featured only two seniors received All-Big Ten recognition, either on the first team, second team, or honorable mention, establishing a school record. Three players earned first-team All-Big Ten honors, including junior defensive tackle Jerel Worthy, who also garnered consensus first-team All-America accolades. Worthy was the third Spartan to be named an AllAmerican under Narduzzi, joining Jonal Saint-Dic (2007) and Greg Jones (2009-10). Worthy was selected in the second round of the 2012 National Football League Draft by the Green Bay Packers, while Trenton Robinson was chosen in the sixth round by the San Francisco 49ers. A total of six Spartan defensive players have been drafted in Narduzzi’s tenure. Narduzzi has served as a defensive coordinator under Dantonio the past nine seasons, including three years at Cincinnati (2004-06). For Narduzzi’s complete bio, please visit msuspartans.com.

SPARTAN COACHING STAFF Ron Burton, a 21-year coaching veteran who also played four seasons in the NFL, is in his first year on the Spartan staff as the defensive line coach. Burton has 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.

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.

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 AllMWC choice, was named the defensive most valuable player of the game. Burton also coached two-time Academic All-American (defensive end) Ryan Carter. RON BURTON DEFENSIVE LINE FIRST SEASON

Burton has Big Ten coaching experience, as he spent five seasons as the linebackers coach at Indiana from 1997-2001. Burton mentored two Butkus Award nominees, Jabar Robinson and Justin Smith, during his time with the Hoosiers. Robinson led the team in tackles two-straight years and is eighth in school history with 339 career tackles, while Smith played one season (2003) in the NFL and ranks ninth in IU history with 326 tackles. Burton also coached linebackers at Eastern Michigan for two seasons (1995-96) and landed his first full-time coaching position as the defensive backs coach at Morehead State (1994).

2013 MICHIGAN STATE SPRING FOOTBALL

SPARTAN 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.

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 fulltime 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.

Sophomore Keith Mumphery led MSU in receptions (42) and ranked second in receiving yards (515), while junior Bennie Fowler ranked first on the team in TD catches (4) and receiving yards (524), and second in receptions (41). True freshman Aaron Burbridge, who ranked fifth on the team in receiving yards (364) and sixth in receptions (29), was named to Big Ten All-Freshman Team by ESPN.com and BTN.com. Burbridge set an MSU single-game record for a freshman with 134 receiving yards on eight catches at Indiana. After spending a majority of the 2011 season at cornerback, sophomore Tony Lippett returned to concentrate on offense in 2012 and finished with 36 catches for 392 yards. Samuel made an immediate impact at MSU in his first season. He helped tutor fifthyear 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 single-season 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 multidimensional 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 pass 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.

THE SAMUEL FILE

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. Michigan State had to deal with multiple injuries throughout the first half of 2012, including the loss of starting right tackle Fou Fonoti and center Travis Jackson. The Spartans used six different starting combinations along the offensive line, but still MARK STATEN managed to pave the way for first-team All-Big Ten OFFENSIVE LINE selection Le’Veon Bell, who led the Big Ten and SEVENTH SEASON 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 Jack Allen earned first-team honors from both Sporting News and the Football Writers Association of America. Allen started five games at left guard, then started the last seven games of the season at center while replacing Jackson, who earned Freshman All-America honors in 2011. In addition, senior right guard Chris McDonald, the only Spartan offensive lineman to start every game last season, earned honorable mention All-Big Ten accolades for the second straight year. He closed his career by starting in 30 consecutive games. Heading into 2011, Michigan State’s offensive line had to replace three starters, but Staten helped mold 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. Fifth-year senior Joel Foreman, who anchored the line from left guard, garnered firstteam All-Big Ten honors by the coaches and media to become MSU’s first All-Big Ten first-team selection on the offensive line since 2004. Foreman also received national recognition, getting named on All-America teams by Yahoo! Sports (second team), Phil Steele (third team) and SI.com (honorable mention). He started more games (49) on the offensive line than any other Spartan in school history and tied the school record for most starts at any position. 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). In addition, Staten also helped Kellen Davis have his most productive year as a Spartan in 2007. Davis, a fifth-round NFL Draft pick by the Chicago Bears, recorded career highs in receptions (32), receiving yards (513) and touchdowns (6) as a senior, and recently completed his fifth season playing for the Bears. 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).

SPARTAN COACHING STAFF Mike Tressel is in his seventh year as the linebackers and special teams coach at Michigan State.

MIKE TRESSEL LINEBACKERS/SPECIAL TEAMS SEVENTH SEASON

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. 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 in 2011 and 2012. MSU ranked fourth in the FBS in total defense (274.4 ypg.), eighth in rushing defense (98.6 ypg.) and ninth in scoring defense (16.3 ppg.) last season.

Junior Max Bullough, a two-time second-team All-Big Ten selection, led the Spartans in tackles for the second year in a row with a career-high 111 stops, which ranked ninth in the conference. Bullough was also second on team and tied for ninth in the Big Ten with 12.5 tackles for loss (45 yards). Junior Denicos Allen picked up honorable mention All-Big Ten accolades after ranking second on the team in sacks (3) and third in tackles (79) and tackles for loss (10). Bullough, who has started 27 straight games, enters his senior year with 223 career tackles, while Allen has started in 26 consecutive games and already ranks 10th in school history in sacks (14) and 11th in tackles for loss (29.5). Tressel also oversees a successful special teams unit that has been one of the best in the Big Ten since his arrival. Placekicker Dan Conroy, a first-team All-Big Ten honoree in 2010, set a MSU single-season record with 23 field goals last season, including the game-winner with just 1:01 remaining against TCU in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. He finished his career ranked among MSU’s all-time leaders in scoring (fourth with 283 points), field goals (fourth with 55) and PATs (sixth with 118). In addition, Conroy closed out his career with a school-record 80 straight PATs, which is the 10th-longest streak in Big Ten history, including all 25 in 2012. Punter Mike Sadler earned first-team All-Big Ten honors from the coaches after leading the Big Ten and ranking 21st in the FBS with his 43.3-yard punting average. Sadler, who also led the Big Ten with 19 punts of 50-plus yards, finished with 3,422 punting yards, good for second most in a MSU single-season. He ranked second in the conference with 31 punts downed inside the 20. The past six 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).
