The Spartans (3-2, 1-1 Big Ten) entered with the nation’s top-ranked run defense and held Northwestern (2-3, 2-1) to 8 yards on the ground, but it didn’t matter. The Wildcats recovered from another second-half slip to beat No. 20 Michigan State 29-19 on Saturday.

After a closer-than-expected win over Utah State in the season opener, Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio pointed out that this was nothing new for the Spartans.

It was a little early for Michigan State to be playing a nail-biter. The 11th-ranked Spartans held off Utah State 38-31 on Friday night, but it was a dicey start for a Michigan State team that now has to go on the road for its next two games. The Spartans came through under pressure at the end, driving for the winning touchdown after falling behind in the fourth quarter — but there were certainly some warning signs in the closely contested opener.

Michigan State desperately needed a big play to avoid an upset and Felton Davis delivered. Davis made a fully extended, 31-yard catch to help set up Connor Heyward's second touchdown with 2 minutes left to put the 11th-ranked Spartans ahead and they held on to beat Utah State 38-31 on Friday night.
