At times, it wasn’t pretty. At times, it was a thing of beauty. But there’s no denying that Friday night’s 17-13 comeback over Boise State was an impressive victory for MSU. And here are links aplenty for you to digest.
Joe Rexrode recaps the game and the dominant night by the defense that held Boise State without an offensive touchdown for the first time since 1997. Here’s my column on what went wrong and what went right and grades for the Spartans. Obviously, Le’Veon Bell’s 210 yards rushing on 44 carries easily proved to be the night’s bright spot, and Brian Calloway looks at the junior running back’s monster game – in which he outgained the Broncos’ entire offense. Watch Bell and QB Andrew Maxwell talk about their performance.
Brian also looks at the special night for Sexton High grad Micajah Reynolds getting his first start. Rexrode caught up with Arthur Ray before the game. Paul Henderson has postgame video of Mark Dantonio, Pat Narduzzi and Dan Roushar. And here is a photo gallery from our esteemed Rod Sanford and Matthew Dae Smith.
Brian will have more on Sunday and all next week leading up to next Saturday’s game at Central Michigan. Who knows what other surprises are in store. As for me, I’m off to get married and will be back during Notre Dame week.
