  Michigan State capped its turnaround from from a two-win season with a fourth-quarter comeback in the Peach Bowl. Payton Thorne's 22-yard touchdown pass to Jayden Reed gave No. 11 Michigan State the lead with less than three minutes remaining and the Spartans overcame an 11-point deficit to beat No. 13 Pittsburgh 31-21 on Thursday night in the Peach Bowl. Led by Thorne, the Spartans outscored the Panthers 21-0 in the final quarter. "The whole game, my teammates just kept telling me to stay up and keep chopping like we talk about," Thorne said. Linebacker Cal Haladay's 78-yard interception return for a touchdown with 22 seconds remaining ended Pitt fill-in quarterback Davis Beville's bid for a last-minute comeback in the game the Panthers played without star QB Kenny Pickett. Thorne threw two fourth-quarter touchdown passes as Michigan State (11-2) rallied after trailing 21-10. "We got stronger and stronger as the game went," second-year coach Mel Tucker said. "We...were able to find a way to get it done." Michigan State finished 2-5 in its pandemic-shortened 2020 season. - Michigan State/AP College Football

  It was a remarkable run, but Kenneth Walker III has decided his days at Michigan State have ended. The consensus All-American announced on social media Thursday that he will not play in the Peach Bowl on Dec. 30 as he prepares for next spring's NFL Draft. After transferring last year from Wake Forest, Walker proved immediately the impact he would have for the Spartans in 2021, scoring on a 75-yard run on the first play from scrimmage as he gained 264 yards and added four touchdowns in the season-opening win over Northwestern. Walker went on to rush for 1,636 yards, second in the nation, and score 18 rushing touchdowns in 12 games. He became the first Michigan State player to win the Walter Camp Player of the Year and the Doak Walker Award. He also finished sixth overall in the Heisman Trophy voting, the best showing for a Spartan since 1988. - Detroit News

  12/11/21 - Aaron BrulerSr/2023, Michigan State, 6-1, 230 (DS#16 OLB) + More +

  Michigan State has received a commitment from a potential difference-making transfer yet again. Mississippi State linebacker transfer Aaron Brule is a Spartan after taking an official visit to East Lansing last weekend. He has 142 career tackles, 18 of those for loss and eight sacks. "He's an amazing person as well as a great football player," said Steve Robertson of Mississippi State site Gene's Page. "He was a tremendous ambassador for Mississippi State on and off the field. His decision to enter the portal was a big loss for the Bulldogs on the field and in the locker room." Brule is being touted as an NFL prospect. - Detroit News
