East Lansing, MI -  Michigan State University finished its 2015 non-conference football schedule with a game against in state rival Central Michigan University today.   The Spartans defeated the Chippewas 30-10 in front of a sold out crowd of 75,218 at Spartan Stadium on a perfect afternoon in East Lansing.   The final score really doesn't indicate on how well the game was played by the Chippewas from Mount Pleasant.   The Chips who have played a tough non-conference schedule to date hung with the Spartans for three quarters.

The Spartans who would jump out to a 17-0 lead would see the Chippewas come back to make the game interesting at 17-10 midway through the 3rd quarter.   Central Michigan University would out gain the Spartans in total yards 340-324 on the day.   It was going to be a battle of two talented quarterbacks who will put up some big numbers in the 2015 campaign for their respective schools.  Connor Cook the Michigan State quarterback would have a 11- 19 day passing and 1 touchdown.  His counterpart Cooper Rush would pass for 26 -39 and 1 touchdown also.  The game would see an unusual number of penalties called on both teams.   Michigan State now moves to 4-0 on the season is currently ranked #2 in all of the polls.   Central Michigan drops to 1-3 after facing three solid opponents in their start of the season. 

Devon Spalding would lead CMU in rushing on 15 attempts for 79 yards while Madre London would run the ball 13 times for MSU and 73 yards.   Gerald Holmes would score two short touchdown runs in the 4th quarter for MSU to put the game out of reach.   Michigan State now opens its Big Ten schedule next Saturday in it's Homecoming Game against Purdue.   Central Michigan now opens its Mid American Conference schedule against tough Northern Illinois also next Saturday.
