Michigan State football throttles Akron, improves to 2-0

·1 min read

Michigan State took care of their business on Saturday night, dominating Akron, 52-0. This was the first shutout for the Spartans since 2019, when the Spartans shutout Rutgers 27-0.

The Spartans were led by their two headed rushing attack of Jalen Berger and Jarek Broussard. Berger would score three times while carrying the ball 17 times for 107 yards. Broussard added two touchdowns while carrying the ball 15 times for 81 yards.

Michigan State’s defense was also a huge part of allowing the Spartans offense to prevail, the Spartans defense forced four Akron turnovers in the game, with the offense capitalizing on all of them for touchdowns.

The Spartans will look to continue the momentum into next week’s clash in Seattle against the Washington Huskies.
