  • 11 wins, the most ever for MSU
  • A Big Ten Championship, the first since 1990
  • #8 BCS / #7 AP and USA Today ranking after the regular season
  • Beat Michigan for the third year running which MSU hasn’t done since ’65-’66-’67
  • Beat Penn State in Happy Valley for the first time since ’65

  • Beat Wisconsin handily, their only loss on the year
  • Became a team that finishes strong with big come-from-behind wins against Northwestern and Purdue
