Michigan State beats Youngstown State 28-6

B.J. Cunningham caught nine passes for 130 yards and a touchdown, moving into a tie for first on Michigan State's career receptions list in the No. 17 Spartans' 28-6 victory over Youngstown State on Friday night. Kirk Cousins threw for 222 yards for Michigan State, which tied for the Big Ten title last season but wasn't especially dominant against the Penguins of the Football Championship Subdivision. The Spartans led 14-6 in the third quarter when Cousins threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Cunningham, who held on despite tight coverage in the back of the end zone. Le'Veon Bell added his second 3-yard touchdown run of the game to make it 28-6 in the fourth. Cunningham has 148 receptions, equaling Matt Trannon's mark. (Copyright 2011 by The Associated Press.
