Minnesota has been lauded for its feats this season. And rightly so. Michigan State also has received many plaudits for a stunningly successful season that saw the Spartans clinch the Legends Division today. Ohio State has been in the spotlight all season, stacking win after win after win. Impressive.
Michigan State’s Isaiah Lewis was ejected for targeting on this hit on Kain Colter in the first quarter of the Spartans game at Northwestern. Lewis was called for the foul after hitting Colter, who was attempting to catch a pass. Colter, who also plays quarterback, was playing wide receiver.
