EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan State's defense scored two touchdowns and Andrew Maxwell hit A.J. Troup for the 46-yard winning score as the White beat the Green 24-17 in the spring game Saturday.
The Spartans, a disappointing 7-6 last season, came in with questions at quarterback, running back and receiver. Despite a few flashes, many of those battles for starting spots and backup roles are likely to continue in August.
Maxwell was 9 of 20 for 110 yards in his second spring game as the probable starter. Backup Connor Cook was 10 for 26 for 217 yards and a touchdown, with Aaron Burbridge catching five of those throws for 113 yards for the Green team.
Converted linebacker Riley Bullough carried 11 times for 48 yards for the Green, while Nick Hill gained 21 yards, including a 7-yard touchdown run.
