Sparty Drills Indiana, Wins Legends Division

(AP) Kirk Cousins threw for 273 yards and three touchdowns in just over a half as No. 12 Michigan State moved a step closer to the Big Ten championship game with a 55-3 rout of Indiana on Saturday. The Spartans entered the game with a one-game lead over both Nebraska and Michigan, who were playing at the same time in Ann Arbor. The Wolverines were leading in the fourth quarter, which would lock Michigan State (9-2, 6-1 Big Ten) into the conference’s first championship game because of its 28-14 win over Michigan on Oct. 15.

NU Tops Minnesota, Becomes Bowl Eligible

(AP) Dan Persa threw for 216 yards and two touchdowns, and Northwestern won its fourth straight, beating Minnesota 28-13 on Saturday. Venric Mark came through with two big kickoff returns as the Wildcats (6-5, 3-4 Big Ten) scored touchdowns on their first three possessions to build a 21-7 lead. That set the tone as Northwestern became eligible for its fourth straight bowl appearance. The Wildcats lost five in a row after winning their first two and appeared to be going nowhere, but they turned it around in a big way with lopsided wins over Indiana and Rice sandwiched around a tight stunner at Nebraska.
