Michigan State football drops third straight game to Maryland




 

Michigan State's defense held up their end of the bargain, but Michigan State's offense failed to show up in a road trip to College Park, Maryland. Maryland's defense shutout the Michigan State offense in the second half, leading the Terrapins to a 27-13 victory.

The first half was a back and forth show between the Terrapins and Spartans, with both teams trading two touchdowns, but a missed extra point was the difference for MSU, who trailed 14-13 in the second quarter.

A two-minute drill score for Mayland gave the Terrapins a 21-13 halftime lead.

Michigan State missed two field goals and one extra point in the first half, putting the Spartans way behind in this contest.

The second half was an offensive disaster.

MSU's defense only gave up two field goals in the second half and the offense was given the ball with the opportunity to make it a football game five times.

The first four times resulted in three-and-outs for the Spartans, while the fifth was a turnover on downs inside the Maryland redzone.

Michigan State will look to bounce back against Ohio State at Spartan Stadium next Saturday.
