1. Katin Houser became a leader
While he very well may have been a team leader before Saturday’s game at Indiana, Katin Houser took steps toward becoming that future captain. This became his team against Indiana.
And it was the first time it really felt like that since the Rutgers game.
Although he did make some mistakes, including two interceptions, he still completed over 50 percent of his passes for a career-high 251 yards and three touchdowns. He was solid for the most part and put Michigan State in the best position to win.
Late in the game, he really ramped up his play. He scrambled to make some big plays, including the touchdown pass to Maliq Carr that was the difference in the final two minutes.
This is Houser’s team now and he proved that with a clutch win and a game-winning drive in the final minutes on Saturday afternoon.
