Michigan State didn’t win a beauty contest, but by the time it left Rutgers on Saturday afternoon, the Spartans were still unbeaten halfway through the regular season. It was a sloppy game overall, but No. 11 Michigan State rode a handful of big plays to knock off Rutgers, 31-13, in front of 41,117 at SHI Stadium to become bowl eligible, something that seemed like a major goal before the season but now feels like an afterthought for a team that is tied atop the Big Ten East.

Michigan State uses parade of explosive plays to down Rutgers on the road Spartan Tailgate
The Spartans, who spent much of the first half looking uncharacteristically unorganized and out of sync, had a day in which their shortest touchdown was 63 yards – twice, actually. Long scoring plays can be demoralizing in their own right — and MSU ripped off 63-, 63-, 65- and 94-yarders against the Scarlet Knights — and, coupled with precise timing, those highlight-reel moments can be devastating.
