(EVANSTON, Ill.) — Connor Cook threw for a career-high 293 yards and two touchdowns as No. 13 Michigan State clinched a spot in the Big Ten title game with a 30-6 romp of Northwestern on Saturday.
“I’m happy to have the hat on and wear it for a couple of weeks and then turn it in,” Dantonio said after the game.
Jeremy Langford rushed for 150 yards and two scores for the Spartans (10-1, 7-0 Big Ten), who are now winners of seven straight.
One more victory will give Michigan State its third 11-win season in the past four years as the Spartans eye a trip to the Rose Bowl.
Trevor Siemian was intercepted twice for Northwestern (4-7, 0-7), who would go winless in Big Ten play if they don’t defeat Illinois next week.
“The Year ’13 is over here in a week — and good riddance,” coach Pat Fitzgerald said. “There’s something about that number I don’t like.”
