Big Ten Championship Second Half Open Thread

Keith Mumphery makes the catch behind the defense for a 72-yard touchdown. - Andy Lyons

MSU leads 17-10 at half.

If you told me we'd have 15 rushing yards at halftime, I would think we would be in very deep trouble. Instead, the Spartans take a 7-point lead into the second half thanks to a 72-yard catch and run by Keith Mumphery and a 33-yard fade to Tony Lippett. Connor Cook's arm has been the key on offense, with 182 yards on 11 for 17 passing.

On the other side, the Spartan defense started out big, shutting Ohio State out for the first quarter (the first time that's happened this year for the Buckeyes). But a couple of scrambles by Braxton Miller have set up 10 points for them in the second quarter.

This is the second half open thread. You know the rules.
