msu logo MSU Football Survives ScareKirk Cousins threw for 329 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 8 Michigan State rallied to beat Northwestern 35-27 and remain unbeaten on Saturday.

B.J. Cunningham made an acrobatic grab for the go-ahead touchdown with two minutes left. Edwin Baker added a 25-yard scoring run and Eric Gordon intercepted Dan Persa to seal a wild win.

Playing out of state for the first time this season, the Spartans scored 28 points in the second half.

They trailed the entire way until Cunningham’s grab with two minutes left on a ball that he and Northwestern’s Brian Peters tipped in the end zone.
