Michigan State Stifles Illinois In 42-3 Win
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Connor Cook threw for three touchdowns and Michigan State's defense locked down Illinois Saturday on the way to a 42-3 win.

The Spartans (7-1, 4-0 Big Ten) used a big defensive stand and a back-breaking drive to crush the Illini.

Illinois (3-4, 0-3) was trailing 7-3 midway through the second quarter when it failed twice to punch the ball in from the Spartans 1-yard line.

Michigan State took over and drove 99 yards for a touchdown. Cook found receiver Bennie Fowler from 18 yards for a 14-3 lead.

Cook finished an efficient 15-of-16 for 208 yards.

Tailback Jeremy Langford had 104 yards on 22 carries and two touchdowns.
