Michigan State Wallops the Illini

Connor Cook threw for three touchdowns in 
a  nearly  flawless performance to lead  the Michigan State Spartans to a 42-3 
rout of the Illinois Fighting Illini in Big Ten play at Memorial Stadium. 

Cook had just a single incompletions on 16 pass attempts and tallied 208 yards 
for  Michigan State (7-1,  4-0 Big Ten). Jeremy Langford had 104 yards and two 
scores  on 22 carries and Keith Mumphery picked up 77 yards and a touchdown on 
just three catches. 

Nathan  Scheelhaase  finished with just 103  yards on 13-of-21 passing and was 
intercepted once for Illinois (3-4, 0-3). Spencer Harris brought in six passes 
for 46 yards. 

Taylor  Zalewski gave Illinois the first lead of the game when he made good on 
a 31-yard field goal early in the first quarter. 

The  Spartans would take  a 7-3 advantage early in the second period on a one- 
yard touchdown run from Langford. 

With  nine  seconds left  before intermission Cook  tossed a 29-yard touchdown 
pass to Bennie Fowler. 

In the third quarter it was Josiah Price's turn to score as he hauled in a 13- 
yard touchdown pass from Cook. 

Langford  scored his second touchdown of the contest later in the third period 
on a seven-yard touchdown run. 

Cook  struck  again, this time  on a 47-yard  connection to Mumphery, early in 
the fourth quarter as the Spartans continued to pull away. 

The points just kept coming for Michigan State as Delton Williams ripped off a 
42-yard touchdown run midway through the final period.
