By Frank Schwab
Against Central Michigan on Sept. 8, Michigan State redshirt freshman quarterback Connor Cook completed 5-of-6 passes for 47 yards and an interception in a blowout win. Those were the only passes he threw all regular season.

Cook wasn’t great on the game-winning drive, but he did enough to get the team into field-goal range. Then kicker Dan Conroy, just 22-of-31 during the regular season, nailed a 47-yarder with 1:01 left and Michigan State held on to win the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl 17-16.
