ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- In front of 113,065, the second largest crowd in Michigan Stadium history, Michigan State beat Michigan for the third straight time, 34-17. The advantage of the home crowd vanished by the third quarter. They were stunned and silent.

The battle of the undefeated teams came down to better execution by Michigan State's quarterback, Kirk Cousins. He threw for a touchdown and Edwin Baker, Le'Veon Bell and Larry Caper each ran for one. The Spartans had 536 yards of total offense.

The Spartans (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten) trailed midway through the second quarter before their scoring binge, and MSU coach Mark Dantonio had a small smile from his spot in the press box. Dantonio is recovering from a heart incident of three weeks ago.

Heisman Trophy candidate Denard Robinson and Michigan (5-1, 1-1 Big Ten) struggled with three interceptions, two in the Red Zone. He was 17 of 29 for 215 yards. He only managed 86 yards on the ground in 21 attempts.

Cousins, avoided turning the ball over and threw for 284 yards. He recorded his 12th 200-yard passing game of his career, throwing for 284 yards, 18-25 and no picks.

After the game Dantonio said, “You embrace rivalries; that's the way I've coached wherever I've been. It's good for college football, and it's good for fans." It is the second week MSU has beaten a ranked opponent.

U-M coach Rich Rodriguez said, “We made too many mistakes against a good team to win today. There is a laundry list of things that we need to get better at, and we've got a good football team coming in. I think our guys will take it serious and know what we've got to work on. We'll start back to work on Monday.”

The teams play for the Paul Bunyan Trophy each year and at the end of the game with the Spartans celebrating in ‘The Big House’, ABC announcer, Sean McDonough had the best quip of the day, “They may just retire the Paul Bunyan Trophy to East Lansing with this victory.”
