It only took one play for the Spartans to find the scoreboard on Friday night.
Michigan State started off their season-opening match-up against Northwestern with a 75-yard touchdown run from new running back Kenneth Walker. It was Walker’s first carry as a Spartan after transferring to Michigan State from Wake Forest in the offseason.
The touchdown run gave the Spartans an early 7-0 lead over the Wildcats.
