No big surprise here: The Spartans have built themselves into a tough Big Ten opponent again on the strength of their defense, but Barkley has scored a touchdown in 15 straight games, and Michigan State isn't in great shape to rally from any kind of significant early deficit. And while Barkley may still be the heavy Heisman favorite in the short-term, despite rushing for just 44 yards against the Buckeyes, Ohio State's victory may have given Barrett the inside track.

In between, Michigan State's Brian Lewerke answered with throwing score of his own to Darrell Stewart. He had 165 yards receiving against Northwestern, a school freshman record.

The tie didn't last long as Penn State scored on the following possession and benefited from poor tackling by Michigan State. Felton Davis caught a game-high12 passes for 181 yards and one touchdown for Michigan State.

Dowell came up with his second interception of the game and third overall for the Spartans, but Penn State responded by picking off Lewerke for the first time. The rushing total moved Barkley into No. 2 all-time in Penn State history with 3,436, passing Curt Warner (3,398; 1979-82). His eight grabs vaulted him into a tie for No. 11 all-time at Penn State, moving up four spots into a tie with Bryant Johnson (1999-2002) at 110 receptions.

CB David Dowell - Picked off Trace McSorley twice in the game and added four tackles.

Mark Hollis said during halftime there wasn't any talks about postponing the game to a later date when talking with Penn State Athletic Director Sandy Barbour, MSU Deputy Athletic Director Greg Ianni and MSU's police department.

Here are some other quick takeaways from Saturday's win against No. 7 Penn State.

Penn State returns to Beaver Stadium to host Rutgers for Homecoming Saturday at noon on BTN.
