I never saw any of it. No one was carrying the game on TV. Apparently being #5 in the nation for Michigan State didn't warrant getting covered, when it was just an early September sacrificial lamb. But you have to be careful with early games. The Michigan Wolverines on Thursday night lost to the Utah Utes 24-17, running about a touchdown behind the whole game, I gather.
But I promised to start off with the winning team's LJ icon, so here's the deal.
So the 11 o'clock news on Channel 3 WWMT had the Spartans scoring first, 7-0. On the kickoff, though, Western managed to run it back 100 yards. Tied, 7-7. I think they said the runner had a 70 yard return on his first place last season, too.
#5 Michigan State University -- 37 Western Michigan University -- 24Sounded like a good game. Though Western didn't actually anticipate winning, they did want to show well, and having been 17 points behind at one point, finishing within two TDs has to be considered a good performance. Close enough.
Good job, Broncos. Off you go -- have a great season!
