After defeating the Rutgers Scarlet Knights last week, the Michigan State Spartans conclude a two-game road trip this weekend against Indiana, and are hoping to head into the bye week at a perfect 7-0.

When returning starter Kalon Gervin entered the transfer portal on Sept. 27, it meant that every Spartans cornerback who regularly sees the field wasn’t on the team last year.

It doesn’t matter to Mel Tucker that Michigan State is 6-0 and one of 13 remaining unbeatens in college football. Or that the Spartans are back in the top ten heading to Indiana on Saturday. To him, his team remains “a work in progress.”

The Hoosiers’ recent resurgence under coach Tom Allen hit some resistance against top competition this season. The Hoosiers lost their opener, 34-6, at No. 2 Iowa, fell 38-24 at home against No. 4 Cincinnati and got shut out, 24-0, at No. 8 Penn State on Oct. 2. However, they also struggled to escape a road game at Western Kentucky, 33-31, and are expected to be without quarterback Michael Penix Jr. for an extended period of time with a separated throwing shoulder he suffered against the Nittany Lions.

Haladay, who finished with four tackles, had to sit out the first half after getting ejected in the fourth quarter of last Saturday’s win over Western Kentucky. “He plays hard, he knows the defense, he knows where he’s supposed to be. He can play fast, and he’s a tackler,” MSU coach Mel Tucker said. “It’s always good when we have productive players and they’re able to go out there and play.”

No. 11 Michigan State Improves to 6-0, Defeats Rutgers, 31-13 Michigan State Athletics
The Michigan State football team improved to 6-0 on the season with a 31-13 victory over Rutgers at SHI Stadium on Saturday afternoon. MSU (6-0, 3-0 Big Ten) used explosive plays all game to put away the Scarlet Knights, scoring touchdowns of 94, 65, 63 and 63 yards.

No. 11 Spartans (6-0) ride quick-strike offense to 31-13 win over Rutgers Detroit News
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.

The No. 11 Michigan State Spartans traveled to Piscataway, New Jersey to take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights for a Big Ten East showdown between two programs who like to use the manta “Keep Chopping.” When it was all said and done, MSU earned a 31-13 victory and improved to 6-0 on the season, already getting to bowl eligibility just six weeks into the season.

No. 11 Michigan State rides big plays to 31-13 win at RutgersMLive.com
Michigan State rode its big-play offense to another win to stay unbeaten. Jalen Nailor had three touchdown catches of at least 60 yards and Kenneth Walker III etched his name in the program record book with a 94-yard touchdown run to lead the No. 11 Spartans (6-0, 3-0 Big Ten) to a 31-13 win at Rutgers (3-3, 0-3 Big Ten) on Saturday afternoon.

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.
