Kenneth Walker III shines in loss

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Michigan State fell on the road against Purdue on Saturday afternoon, but not due to a lack of effort from running back and Heisman Trophy contender Kenneth Walker III.

Walker III did his best to carry the Spartans on his back, rushing for over 100 yards for the second straight week and the sixth time this season to go along with a rushing touchdown. Walker is now inching closer to the 1,500-yard mark and is boosting his Heisman chances on a weekly basis. He’s guaranteed an invitation to New York, at the very least, at this point.
