MADISON, Wis. — Well. Hmm. Not sure what’s left to say about this Michigan State offense.
Just as the Spartans begin to look like a normal competent football offense, with third-down conversions and a couple decent drives, they go backwards 23 yards from the 11-yard line and punt.
Penalties, play-calling (too much Nick Hill), clock management … this is simply an ugly operation, the offense failing to score a first-half touchdown for the fifth time in nine games.
Still, it’s 7-3. This defense deserves medal.
