Michigan State is now in the midst of a three-game losing streak following a 31-14 loss to BYU.
Head coach Mark Dantonio said it best during his postgame press conference in that it’s a lot easier to slide backwards than it is to climb forwards. The latter is what he hopes to get the Spartans doing more going forward, but it’s going to take a lot of work to get there.
"As I told our football team after the game, I believe this program has been built on a good, solid foundation. It's taken nine years to do that," Dantonio said. "The ride up the mountain's very difficult at times, and that ride down sometimes is very quick."

Up next for the Spartans: They resume Big Ten play with their Homecoming game against a 2-3 Northwestern team next Saturday.
