Continued: Michigan State upsets Ohio State for Big Ten championship

On its next possession, Michigan State drove 90 yards for the go-ahead score, with Cook hitting tight end Josiah Price with a 9-yard touchdown pass with 11:41 remaining.

The Spartans defense stopped Ohio State on fourth down — with Denicos Allen making a huge play to corral Miller — and Michigan State never looked back. Langford sealed the win with a 26-yard burst up the middle for a touchdown.

“I think we’ve heard people talk bad about us all year,” Cook said. “This wasn’t the first week we heard people talking negatively about us. It really didn’t affect us any way shape or form.”
