Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott forced 10 missed tackles and ran for 91 yards after contact on Saturday against Minnesota.

Scott was considered questionable for the game against the Gophers, but you wouldn't know it watching him run on Saturday. The 6-foot-1, 230-pound bruiser ran around and through the Minnesota defense, as you can see from the stats above. The most impressive thing is that it came on a limited snap count. Scott should get more touches this week against Indiana

Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott (undisclosed) ran for 194 yards and two scores in a 30-27 victory over Minnesota on Saturday.

Scott missed last week's game against Michigan, but he certainly didn't look unhealthy against the Gopher defense. The 6-foot-1, 230-pound junior pounded the Minnesota front seven, and if not for the rotation with fellow tailback Madre London probably could have put up a 250-plus yard game. More games like this from Scott could make the Spartans a contender in the Big Ten East.

Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott (undisclosed) will play against Minnesota on Saturday.

Scott was considered questionable for the tilt against the Gophers, but the leading rusher for the Spartans will take the field on Saturday.
Oct 14 - 8:01 PM

Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott (undisclosed) is questionable for Saturday's game against Minnesota.

Spartans HC Mark Dantonio described Scott as being "nicked up." He dressed -- but did not play -- in Saturday's upset of Michigan. Madre London would likely see the bulk of the work in Scott's place if he is unable to play against the Gophs this weekend. Gerald Holmes is also in that conversation, though Holmes is questionable in his own right due to an ankle injury.

Michigan State redshirt senior RB Gerald Holmes (ankle) is uncertain for Saturday's game against Minnesota.

Holmes tweaked his ankle last Saturday against Michigan but was able to return to the game. Consider him a game-time decision tomorrow against the Gophers.
Oct 13 - 2:09 PM

Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott's status is up in the air for Saturday against Minnesota with an undisclosed injury.

The undisclosed injury kept Scott from playing against Michigan last week, and it sounds like it could keep the Spartan tailback from playing against the Golden Gophers as well. Fellow running back Gerald Holmes (ankle) also is questionable for the game on Saturday, which means we could see a lot of Madre London this week.
Oct 12 - 9:01 PM

Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott didn't play in Saturday night's upset win over Michigan due to an undisclosed injury.

Madre London and Gerald Holmes split carries in his absence. Scott's injury and his timetable to return from it are both unknown at this time. He did warm up just prior to Saturday's game against the Wolverines before he was scratched. HC Mark Dantonio said Scott was "nicked up" and likely could have played if needed. Sparty travels to Minnesota on Saturday.

Michigan State junior RB Madre London rushed for 59 yards on 10 carries while catching two passes for 19 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 14-10 win over Michigan.

London was the skill-position standout in this one, so much as anybody was a skill-position standout in this slog of a game. Both the 59 yards rushing and 19 yards receiving represented season-bests for the 6-foot-1, 216-pounder. Michigan State will look to improve to a 5-1 when they take on Minnesota next weekend.
Oct 7 - 11:38 PM

Michigan State redshirt sophomore QB Brian Lewerke completed 11-of-22 passes for 94 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 61 yards and an additional score in Saturday's 14-10 upset of Michigan.

It was a brutal offensive showing by both teams, but Lewerke and his Spartan teammates managed to come out on top -- this despite converting just 2-of-14 third-down conversions for the evening. Lewerke scored on a 14-yard run with 3:05 remaining in the first quarter and hit up Madre London for a 16-yard touchdown midway through the second quarter. And that would be that. Michigan State would not score again in the game following that touchdown toss. A win is a win is a win, though. Through five contests, the redshirt sophomore gunslinger has thrown for 1,057 yards with a 9/2 TD/INT ratio and has rushed for 309 yards and three scores.
Oct 7 - 11:33 PM

Michigan State redshirt sophomore QB Brian Lewerke completed 18-of-28 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 42 yards in Saturday's 17-10 win over Iowa.

With LJ Scott struggling (only 28 yards today), Lewerke (6'3/215) has had to shoulder almost all of the burden of moving this offense in the early going. Lewerke is a bit stretched as a one-man show, but make no mistake: He's been a godsend for Sparty this season. Lewerke has an 8/2 TD/INT rate on 63-percent completions and over seven yards per attempt. Perhaps more importantly, he's been a consistent rushing threat, running for 248 yards and two scores through four games.
Sep 30 - 8:17 PM

Michigan State junior WR Felton Davis III caught nine passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 17-10 win over Iowa.

In his first year as a major contributor in the passing game, Davis III has recorded at least four catches in all four games and has caught two touchdowns in two of the four. Last season, Davis had 12 catches for 150 yards in 12 games. He was a top-250 overall recruit coming out of high school.
Sep 30 - 8:10 PM

Michigan State received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 QB Dwan Mathis.

Mathis (6'4/185) had previously been committed to Iowa State in February before reopening his recruitment this summer. One factor which helped eventually sway him to the Spartans -- Michigan State HC Mark Dantonio told Mathis that he will have an opportunity to compete for a starting role immediately once he joins the team. During the offseason camp circuit, the dual-threat prospect came away with positional MVP honors at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in Columbus, where he showed off an impressive blend of athleticism. To whit, he even took part in wide receiver drills and looked a natural there. Rivals ranks him as the No. 82 overall prospect for the 2019 cycle.

Sep 27 - 5:02 PM

Michigan State redshirt sophomore QB Brian Lewerke completed 13-of-21 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 81 yards and two additional scores in Saturday's 28-14 win over Western Michigan.

Lewerke opened the game's scoring with a 61-yard dash to the end zone in the closing minutes of the first quarter. He followed that up with a 15-yard scoring toss to LJ Scott before halftime and an additional one-yard scoring run in the third quarter. Lewerke has shown friskiness as a runner in two games this season, having put up an even 150 yards on the ground in that space. He has also thrown for 411 yards with a 4/0 TD/INT ratio.
Sep 9 - 8:11 PM

Michigan State redshirt sophomore QB Brian Lewerke went 22-for-33 for 250 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 35-10 victory over Bowling Green.

Lewerke (6'3/215) also demoralized the Falcons with his legs, leading the Spartans with 69 yards on the ground. Not only a good performance, but a nice bit of leadership shown for a signal-caller of a team that badly needed to turn the page. Coming off a 3-9 season, Sparty dismissed four players over sexual assault allegations this past offseason. If this game was any indication, Michigan State will return to bowl season this winter.
Sep 2 - 4:14 PM

Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott fumbled twice and had only 39 yards on 15 carries in a 35-10 win over Bowling Green on Saturday.

The Spartans won easily, but Scott's cringe-worthy performance against a poor defense was a bit troubling. His first fumble was on the game's first drive near the goal line. QB Brian Lewerke finished with 30 more rushing yards on seven less attempts. The 6-foot, 233-pound Scott ran for 994 yards and six touchdowns while working to a 5.4 ypc average as a sophomore in 2016.
