The Michigan State Spartans offense sputtered for the second time in three weeks at home, as they fell to the Arizona State Sun Devils, 10-7. 

With the loss, MSU head coach Mark Dantonio will have to wait at least one more week before passing Duffy Daugherty as the all-time leader in wins at Michigan State. Dantonio is currently tied with Daugherty with 109 wins.
