Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott rushed for 30 yards on eight carries in Saturday's 48-3 loss to Ohio State.

Nothing doing whatsoever for Scott -- or anybody on Sparty's offense -- in this one. The junior went off for 194 yards rushing against Minnesota in mid-October, but otherwise has not topped 90 yards on the ground in a game this season. He has not put his best foot forward for a potential draft declaration, not in the slightest.
Nov 11 - 4:20 PM

Michigan State redshirt freshman TE Noah Davis (leg) is active for Saturday's game against Ohio State.

Davis returns after missing the last two games. Rated as one of the nation's top-20 tight ends coming out of high school by Rivals (No. 14) and ESPN (No. 19), Davis redshirted his first season on campus. He has only one catch this fall.
Nov 11 - 11:47 AM

Michigan State junior WR Felton Davis III caught 12 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown during Michigan State's 27-24 upset win over Penn State on Saturday.

This game was delayed for at least three hours and Michigan State returned as the better team. Felton made a number of ridiculous catches, diving jump and extending with Penn State in good position. It was a career game for the junior, and his 33-yard touchdown was a thing of beauty as he completely levitated and laid out for a catch. No other Spartan had more than five catches.

Saturday's match-up between Michigan State and Penn State is scheduled to resume at 4:00 EST after being delayed due to lightning.

The lightning delay came midway through the second quarter with Penn State holding a 14-7 lead. The contest will be played in soggy conditions when it resumes, hopefully with all lightning concerns now cast aside.

Saturday's match-up between Michigan State and Penn State is currently in a lightning delay.

Following an entertaining first quarter which ended with the Nittany Lions up by a 14-7 score, lightning in the area shut down the party. There is no restart time at this juncture, but we'll pass along an update when the game boots back up.
Nov 4 - 1:25 PM

Michigan State junior WR Felton Davis III caught eight passes for 98 yards and two scores in a 39-31 loss to Northwestern on Saturday in triple-overtime.

Davis III has now scored multiple touchdowns in three games this year, and has seven on the year. In other words, it's been boom-or-bust in terms of finding the end zone for the Spartan junior wideout. His second score was a massive one; a touchdown with under 30 seconds left that tied the game at 17-17 from Brian Lewerke. Davis will look to make it three games in a row with a score next week against Penn State.
Oct 28 - 7:43 PM

Michigan State freshman WR Cody White caught nine passes for 165 yards and two scores in a 39-31 triple-overtime loss to Northwestern on Saturday.

It's the second-straight big game for the freshman wideout, who is clearly developing a connection with quarterback Brian Lewerke. He scored from six-yards out to give the Spartans a 7-0 lead in the first, and he caught his second touchdown from 11-yards out in the second-overtime to give Michigan State a 31-24 lead. The future is clearly very bright for the 6-foot-3, 206-pound Davis. He'll look to stay hot next week against Penn State.
Oct 28 - 7:31 PM

Michigan State redshirt sophomore QB Brian Lewerke completed 39-of-57 passes for 445 yards and four touchdowns with an interception in a 39-31 triple-overtime loss to Northwestern on Saturday.

The Spartans could not run the football at all (95 yards on 30 carries, 30 of those yards belong to Lewerke), so it was up to the senior quarterback and the Spartans passing game to win this one. They almost did. Trailing 17-10, Lewerke threw a 12-yard strike with just 25 seconds left to Felton Davis III to tie the game at 17-17 and send the game into overtime. Unfortunately for Lewerke, the game ended on a sour note, as his interception in the end zone ended the game and gave Northwestern the win. Michigan State will look to bounce back next week against Penn State.
Oct 28 - 7:27 PM

Michigan State's CB duo of sophomore Justin Layne and freshman Josiah Scott is considered one of the best in the nation.

Layne is following in the footsteps of former Spartan Tony Lippett, who opened his career as a receiver before picking up cornerback and being drafted at that position. The two possess unusual height for the position, which helps Layne matchup against the opponents' tall receiver.
Oct 26 - 11:18 AM

Michigan State freshman WR Cody White caught six passes for 99 yards in Saturday's 17-9 win over Indiana.

White (6'3/206) was a receiving standout in a game which saw very little real passing action. The three-star true freshman entered the contest having caught just five passes for 50 yards. He'll try to make it back-to-back nice showings when Sparty takes on Northwestern next Saturday.
Oct 21 - 7:34 PM

Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott rushed for 87 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries in Saturday's 17-9 win over Indiana.

Scott did not start the contest as punishment for his being arrested for driving on a suspended license for the seventh time on Wednesday. He has a valid license, now, and after he rode the pine at the beginning of the contest, he went on to take on his typical workload. His touchdown came on a patient 18-yard run to the right in the fourth quarter, one which gave Michigan State a 17-9 lead with under two minutes remaining. Scott has largely disappointed this season outside of a 194-yard performance against Minnesota last weekend, but will try to finish up strong as he heads toward a potential draft declaration this winter.
Oct 21 - 7:27 PM

Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott (discipline) will not start in Saturday's game against Indiana.

This is the slap-on-the-wrist punishment for Scott's Wednesday arrest for driving on a suspended license (his seventh such arrest). While Madre London will start in his place on Saturday, Scott is still expected to play in the contest.
Oct 21 - 3:32 PM

Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio announced junior RB LJ Scott will play Saturday against Indiana.

On Wednesday, Scott was arrested for his seventh(!) driving infraction since 2016. "In what has been a lengthy process, LJ Scott now has a valid driver’s license, free of any restrictions," Dantonio said via a statement released 48 hours later. "He has resolved the matter completely, and has paid a price, both financially and publicly. His status will be affected for Saturday’s game, but he will play." Scott accepted a plea deal on Friday, paving the way for Dantonio's surprising decision.
Oct 20 - 3:27 PM

Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott was arrested for driving on a suspended license on Wednesday.

Remarkably, this is Scott's seventh arrest relating to either a suspended license or his driving without a license at all. Michigan State has yet to issue a statement regarding the 6-foot-1, 230-pounder's Wednesday arrest and his status for Saturday's game against Indiana is currently unknown. We'll pass along updates as they become available. After a slow start to the season, Scott finally busted out in a big way against Minnesota this past weekend, rushing for 194 yards and two touchdowns.
Oct 19 - 5:05 PM

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
