Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio held his weekly press conference Tuesday inside the Tom and Lupe Izzo Family Media Center at the Spartan Stadium North End Zone Complex. Dantonio previewed Saturday's showdown at No. 3/4 Oregon and talked about the matchup against the Ducks.
Opening night couldn't have gone better for eighth-ranked Michigan State, first and foremost because quarterback Connor Cook didn't sustain a devastating knee injury on the Spartans' first drive of Friday's 45-7 victory against Jacksonville State.
Call it a storybook beginning. MSU wide receiver AJ Troup's career took yet another odds-defying turn when his first catch as a Spartan resulted in a 17-yard touchdown for a 21-0 lead in the first quarter of the 45-7 season-opening victory against Jacksonville State.
Connor Cook threw three touchdown passes in the first quarter - and withstood a hit to his leg that left him momentarily hobbled - to help No. 8 Michigan State to an easy 45-7 victory over Jacksonville State on Friday night. | Post-Game Quotes | Stats | Post-Game Notes
