Kirk Cousins leads Spartans' second-half charge as team goes 7-0
Michigan State's latest letdown lasted only a half -- and that's one sign these Spartans could be headed for a memorable season.
Kirk Cousins threw a 48-yard touchdown pass to B.J. Cunningham in the third quarter, helping No. 13 Michigan State to its best start in more than four decades with a 26-6 win over Illinois on Saturday. The Spartans started slowly a week after beating Michigan, but they outscored the Illini 23-0 in the second half.
