In the much anticipated in-state showdown between Michigan and Michigan State, the Spartans scored on five straight possessions en route to a dominating 34-17 win over their arch rival Wolverines.  In short, just about everything we knew about Michigan State was confirmed, as was everything we knew about the Michigan defense.  Despite moving the ball effectively, the Wolverines were plagued by turnovers and unable to generate points in the red zone.
