Kenneth Walker III's FIVE Touchdowns Lead Michigan State Past Michigan to Keep the Spartans Undefeated

Holy cow, what a game we witnessed between No. 6 Michigan and No. 8 Michigan State on Saturday afternoon. The Wolverines had a 30-14 lead in the third quarter, but the Spartans used a monster performance from Kenneth Walker III (23 carries, 197 yards, 5 TD) to mount the comeback for the win in the biggest game in this rivalry in recent memory.

Walker might be right at the top of the Heisman odds on Monday morning. The numbers he's putting up so far this season have been nothing short of phenomenal.

Michigan got the ball back at the end of the game with a chance to drive for the win, but the MSU defense came up with an awesome interception to seal the victory.

The job Mel Tucker has done at Michigan State in just his second season — the first of which was the Covid season that almost didn't even happen — is pretty unbelievable. If he's not the recipient of every national coach of the year award, I'd like to see who else could possibly win any of them.

The Spartans are now 8-0 with a couple massive showdowns looming with Ohio State and Penn State at the end of the season, but for now, every MSU fan should just sit back and enjoy where they are right now. This is a program which went 7-6 in back-to-back seasons before Tucker's arrival.

Both of the teams in this game are damn good football programs. Michigan still isn't out of the College Football Playoff race with a close road loss at the No. 8 team in the country and MSU is quite obviously in great shape going forward. That game was every bit the heavyweight battle it was billed to be.
