  After turning the ball over seven times in a loss to Rutgers last year, No. 11 Michigan State turned to the the big-play approach with its new cast of players. It worked to perfection. Jalen Nailor caught touchdown passes of 63, 63 and 65 yards from Payton Thorne and transfer Kenneth Walker scored on a school-record 94-yard run as the Spartans remained unbeaten with a 31-13 victory over the reeling Scarlet Knights on Saturday. Michigan State (6-0, 3-0 Big Ten) is off to its best start since it won its first eight games in 2015, when it reached the College Football Playoff. The loss was the third straight for Rutgers (3-3), all against ranked opponents. The Scarlet Knights fell to No. 9 Michigan two weeks ago and No. 7 Ohio State last week. Overall, Rutgers has dropped 33 straight to ranked teams since beating then-No. 23 South Florida 31-0 on Nov. 12, 2009. It was the fifth time in FBS history a team has had a 300-yard passer, a 200-yard rusher and a 200-yard receiver in the same game. - Michigan State/AP College Football

  The first time Jalen Nailor ever ran a double move is still seared into the memories at Bishop Gorman High School. It was his sophomore season, his first on varsity at one of the nation's powerhouse programs, located in Las Vegas. A quiet kid lined up out wide in a team drill as the ball snapped. He moved like a blur. Up the seam, diagonally to the sidelines and then back across the middle, Nailor made three motions look like one. "He runs that route like I've never seen," said former Bishop Gorman offensive coordinator Louie Rodriguez, who is now a head coach in Texas. "Running a corner-post route in the middle of the field at full speed is he transitions his feet and his body to do it full-speed. It's unfair to the DB." On 28 different occasions over the next three years, Nailor took the ball and outraced everyone to the end zone. He was the go-to receiver on a team won the state championship all three seasons. Over time, the people watching gave him a nickname: Speedy.

The name has stuck more than five years later, now that he's two time zones away. Now a redshirt sophomore, Nailor is the top returning weapon for a Michigan State offense hoping to become explosive. It's the feeling they get when they watch Nailor run. "Jalen Nailor, that's a guy," fellow starting receiver Jayden Reed said. "When I watch him, I try to model stuff he does and try to add it to my game. I look up to Jalen as a receiver because he can do a lot of stuff that I can't." - Lansing State Journal

  Jalen Nailor arrived at MSU as a gadget-play guy - a playmaker known only for his speed. Then he also became a deep threat, able to finish catches after burning by defenders. Now he's the entire package. His strong hands on a diving catch on an 11-yard out route, his savvy on the fade route for a touchdown, his move on a helpless Penn State defensive back to get open on a 45-yard TD pass - he looks like a true go-to receiver. There are other young weapons to like on MSU's offense. Tre'Von Morgan showed promise Saturday. Jayden Reed has been good most of the year. Jordon Simmons at running back, too. But Nailor, right now, looks like MSU's best mismatch and someone defenses are increasingly going to have to build game plans around. - Lansing State Journal

  Michigan State has hired Courtney Hawkins as wide receivers coach. Spartans coach Mel Tucker announced the addition to his new staff on Wednesday. Hawkins was the head coach and athletic director at Flint Beecher High School in Michigan, where he played receiver before going on to star at the position at Michigan State. Hawkins was a two-time All-Big Ten player for the late George Perles from 1988 to 1991 for the Spartans. He played in nine NFL seasons for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Tucker was hired away from Colorado last week by Michigan State, which more than doubled his total compensation with a six-year, $33 million contract. He retained assistants Mike Tressel and Ron Burton from coach Mark Dantonio's staff. Tucker brought one of his assistants with the Buffaloes with him on Monday, hiring Chris Kapilovic to be his offensive line coach and running game coordinator. Kapilovic had the same roles at Colorado under Tucker last year in his only season at the school. - AP College Football
