No. 24 Michigan St batters No. 23 Michigan 29-6

Posted: Updated:

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Shilique Calhoun, Ed Davis and the rest of Michigan State's defense battered rival Michigan on Saturday, and the No. 24 Spartans remained unbeaten in the Big Ten with a 29-6 victory over the 23rd-ranked Wolverines.

Michigan State (8-1, 5-0 Big Ten) has won five of the last six meetings with the Wolverines, and this was the Spartans' most lopsided win in the series since 1967. They held Michigan (6-2, 2-2) to minus-48 yards rushing, the worst output in the Ann Arbor program's history.

Connor Cook threw for a touchdown and ran for one, but this game belonged to Michigan State's defense, which solidified its spot among the nation's best with an overwhelming performance on a rainy afternoon at Spartan Stadium.

Calhoun and Davis each had 2 1/2 sacks.
