No. 13 Michigan State's Le'Veon Bell ran for 57 yards and one touchdown in the first quarter, and the Spartans lead 10-3 after 15 minutes. Michigan State scored when Bell ran one yard to paydirt to cap off a 12-play, 60-yard drive, giving the Spartans the game's first score. A 17-yard drive that ended when Michael Frisina made a 23-yard field goal helped No. 22 Boise State narrow the deficit to 7-3. The Broncos started in good field position at Michigan State's 23-yard line when Jamar Taylor intercepted Andrew Maxwell's pass.

The Spartans expanded their lead to 10-3 thanks to a 10-play, 40-yard drive that ended when Dan Conroy kicked a 50-yard field goal. Maxwell's 23-yard pass to Bennie Fowler took Michigan State from the 38 and across midfield to ignite the drive.


Boise State will start the second quarter with the ball on its own 43-yard line.
