Minnesota At Michigan State Score Update: Spartans Tie Gophers At 24

The Michigan State Spartans capitalized on MarQueis Gray's first truly bad pass of the afternoon, and they have tied the Minnesota Golden Gophers at 24 early in the fourth quarter in East Lansing.

On a third down play, Gray rolled out to his left and attempted to throw one across his body for first down yardage, but the pass was intercepted by Michigan State's Trenton Robinson at the Minnesota 41-yard line. It was the Gophers' first turnover of the afternoon, and the Spartans took advantage of it.

After an 18-yard pass for a first down, the Spartans' offense managed to gain just one more yard, and Kirk Cousins threw what should have been an interception in the end zone that was dropped by a Minnesota defender, but the Spartans had to settle for a 40-yard field goal from Dan Conroy that tied the score at 24.

Can the Gophers get their first victory over a ranked team on the road since their defeat of the Michigan Wolverines back in 2005? We'll have all of the updates for you right here as we try to find out!
