Defense carries Spartans to 14-0 win over Purdue
MICHIGAN ST 14, PURDUE 0

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Denicos Allen returned a fumble 45
yards for a touchdown, and Michigan State's offense finally
added an insurance score in the fourth quarter of a 14-0 win
over Purdue on Saturday.

The Spartans didn't make it past the Purdue 32-yard line until
the fourth, when receiver Tony Lippett threw a 5-yard touchdown
pass to Andrew Gleichert on a trick play.

Michigan State (6-1, 3-0 Big Ten Conference) remains atop the
Legends Division but clearly has work to do with the toughest
part of its schedule still to come. Purdue (1-6, 0-3) kept it
close after being routed by Wisconsin and Nebraska in its first
two conference games, but Paul Griggs missed two field goals.

The Spartans entered with the nation's top-ranked defense, and
Allen opened the scoring in the second quarter with Michigan
State's fifth defensive touchdown of the season. Max Bullough
hit quarterback Danny Etling, the ball popped free, and Allen
was able to scoop it up and score easily.

Purdue converted a fourth down thanks to a penalty, which gave
the Boilermakers the ball at the Michigan State 34 with 9
seconds left in the second quarter. That was as far into
opposing territory as either team advanced the ball in the first
half, but Griggs was short on a 51-yard field goal attempt.

Griggs also came up short from 41 yards in the third quarter,
and Michigan State scored again in the fourth. Connor Cook
completed a pass to Macgarrett Kings for 25 yards on
third-and-12, and a 26-yard catch-and-run by Josiah Price put
the ball at the Purdue 7.

Two plays later, Lippett took the ball on what looked like an
end-around, but he threw to an open Gleichert for a touchdown.

Cook went 13 of 25 for 107 yards, although at one point he had
only 17 yards on eight completions. Etling was 14 of 25 for 160
yards, but he also threw a crucial interception in the end zone
in the first quarter, after Purdue had reached the Michigan
State 37 with a fourth-down conversion.

Jeremy Langford had 131 yards on 24 carries for Michigan State.

While the Spartans were sputtering offensively, punter Mike
Sadler gave them a lift, landing three punts inside the 10-yard
line.
