EAST LANSING, MI (WTVB) - Michigan State is edging closer to a Big Ten title game appearance, but in the words of Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio on Tuesday at his weekly news conference, “I don’t want anyone to think we’ve arrived, we’re a long way from that.” MSU secured a share of the Legends Division title with their win last weekend at Nebraska, improving their record to 9-and-1 and 6-0 in league play. Michigan State will be on the road Saturday against Northwestern. The 13th ranked Spartans are number-one in the nation in total team defense for the tenth straight week.
The 13th week of the season kicked off last night with a couple of blowouts in the Mid-American Conference as Buffalo routed Miami, Ohio 44-7 and Kent State stopped Ohio U. 44-13. Tonight in the MAC, it’s unbeaten and 16th ranked Northern Illinois at Toledo.
