It’s clear that the running game is a key piece of Michigan State’s offense, whether it be wearing out the defense, creating more open looks for Thorne or simply sustaining momentum. However, the Spartans finished with just 38 yards on 14 attempts against Minnesota. The week before, MSU ran for just 42 yards on 29 carries at Washington. Under Head Coach Mel Tucker, the Spartans are 1-8 when the team finishes with under 100 rushing yards.
