It was billed as the biggest event in the history of the city, but it didn’t take long for Michigan State to spoil the party at the home of Central Michigan.
Andrew Maxwell was much sharper in his second start, going 20-for-31 for 275 yards and two touchdowns as No. 11 Michigan State rolled to a 41-0 victory over Central Michigan at Kelly/Shorts Stadium on Saturday.
Maxwell wasn’t perfect and the timing with he and his receivers still needs work, but it was a much smoother performance than the three-interception game from a week ago.
Maxwell had touchdown passes to Bennie Fowler and Dion Sims while Le’Veon Bell had two touchdowns and gained 70 yards on 18 carries. Fowler had eight grabs for 99 yards for the Spartans (2-0).
Central Michigan (1-1) scored in the final minutes when Jason Wilson returned an interception of Michigan State backup quarterback Connor Cook 55 yards for a touchdown.
