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.

Mark Dantonio’s name will soon stand alone atop the list of all-time winningest football coaches at Michigan State.

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin Segment of the Day we pay tribute to one of our most memorable guests; amputee MMA fighter Ronald Mann. Mann was a former United States Army emergency room medic who lost his leg in a motorcycle accident during time off duty. Mann captured the Korea-wide Army Tae Kwon Do championship for his division, using martial arts as his release and main purpose in life.
