MSU senior quarterback Tyler O'Connor talks to the media after the Spartans fall to Wisconsin 30 to 6 on Saturday afternoon.

Freshman Quarterback Alex Hornibrook lead Wisconsin to a 30 to 6 thumping of Michigan State at Spartan Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Hornibrook threw for 195 yards and a touchdown, outplaying MSU senior Tyler O'Connor, who had three interceptions on the day. 

The loss was the biggest for MSU at Spartan Stadium since 2009, when the Spartans lost to Penn State by 28 points. A road matchup against Indiana now awaits Mark Dantonio's team.
