#2 Michigan St. squeaks by Purdue


The Purdue Boilermakers put quite the scare into number-two ranked Michigan State today, staging a huge second-half comeback, before falling just short, 24-21.  Down 21-0 at halftime, the Boilers made it interesting, thanks in part to Markell Jones, who scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter.  The Purdues cut it to 21-14, with Jones' 68 yard TD run, and then after an MSU field goal, Jones hit paydirt again, to make it 24-21.  After holding on defense, they got the ball back with over 3 minutes left, and advanced to near midfield, before turning it over on downs.  Michigan State stays unbeaten, while the Boilers drop to 1-4.
