Spartans 44 , Florida Atlantic Owls 0

E. LANSING (WWJ/AP) – B.J. Cunningham has become Michigan State’s career leader in receptions following his first grab on the 17th-ranked Spartans’ first drive against Florida Atlantic as the Spartans go on to crush the Owls 44-0 Saturday.

Kirk Cousins threw for 183 yards and two touchdowns, and Michigan State held Florida Atlantic to one first down in the lopsided victory.

B.J. Cunningham caught five passes for 73 yards, breaking a tie with Matt Trannon for Michigan State’s career lead in receptions. The Spartans (2-0) led 27-0 at halftime and ended up outgaining FAU 434-48.

The Owls (0-2) have scheduled a brutal opening month. They opened at Florida and play at Auburn in two weeks.

Cousins finished 16 of 21, and backup Andrew Maxwell also played quite a bit.

Michigan State has held an opponent to one first down only one other time – against Maryland in 1944.
