Spartans top Gophers to complete unbeaten Big Ten season

East Lansing, MI ( - Jeremy Langford ran for a touchdown and Connor Cook threw for a score, as 11th-ranked Michigan State completed an undefeated Big Ten regular season with a 14-3 victory over Minnesota at Spartan Stadium.

The Spartans did just enough offensively, scoring on their first possession of the game and their initial series of the second half, in a tune-up for next week's Big Ten championship game against Ohio State.

Michigan State (11-1, 8-0 Big Ten) won its final eight games for its third unbeaten Big Ten regular season and first since accomplishing the feat in 1965 and 1966. The Spartans' lone loss came Sept. 21 in a 17-13 loss at Notre Dame.

Minnesota (8-4, 4-4) completed a successful regular season despite back-to- back losses after winning four in a row. The Gophers hadn't won as many as eight games in a season since the 2003 squad finished 10-3.
