Back to .500: MSU-Illinois Postgame Thread

MSU gets the job done, taking Illinois down 24-14.  Larry Caper leads the way with 139 total yards and a TD.

Two reasons for concern:

  • Getting outscored 14-7 in the second half by a team that showed a complete lack of offensive cohesion.
  • Injuries: Glenn Winston, Larry Caper, Caulton Ray, A.J. Jimmerson, and Keith Nichol all got dinged up.  Winston's (sprained knee) and Nichol's (dislocated left elbow?) injuries looked particularly bad.

Still, our conference record stands at 2-1, which will be good for no worse than a tie for 3rd place in the league at the end of the day.
