The Michigan State Spartans traveled to Northwestern and beat up on the Wildcats to lock up a Legends Division title, winning 30-6.

It was another dominating Spartan performance, as the defense shut down the Wildcat running attack all day long and also forced three Wildcat interceptions.

But for Michigan State, the story of the day was the offense, which has continued it’s impressive improvement from the start of the season, where the unit struggled in all phases of the game.

The Spartans racked up 464 yards of total offense on the day with an extremely balanced attack, as they were able to throw and run the ball with ease against the Wildcat defense.

Connor Cook was very impressive on the day, completing 16-of-23 passes for 293 yards and two touchdowns, as he was in total control of the offense and made the right decisions all day long.

Spartan running back Jeremy Langford continued his impressive streak, posting his sixth straight 100-yard rushing game on the year, and also passing the 1,000-yard mark on the season as he carried the ball 25 times for 150 yard and two touchdowns.

This win locks up the Legends Division for Michigan State and secures a trip to Indianapolis, where the Spartans will play for the Big Ten Championship and a chance to go to the Rose Bowl.

The Spartans haven’t played in the Rose Bowl since 1987. It is undetermined who the Spartans will play in the game, but all signs point to it being the Ohio State Buckeyes.
