  • Michigan State running back Gerald Holmes pushes for extra yards in the first quarter of their Big Ten football game against Michigan State at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor on Saturday

The Land Grant Trophy is at stake as both teams are looking to bounce back from their first conference losses of the season.

Location: Spartan Stadium, East Lansing, Mich. NCAA rules allow halftime to be shortened if both schools agree to it, but Hollis said both Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio and Penn State James Franklin requested a full halftime to allow for adjustments and to help normalize the game for players. Laying waste to Pitt, pulling one out in Iowa, and clobbering MI in front of almost 111,000 fans - this team just seemed to have "it". This program was coming off a 3-9 campaign.

Penn State's Trace McSorley is second in the Big Ten in total offense averaging 297 yards per game.

Now, two scorned teams will face off in Week 10 for the second-place spot in their division.

No. 7 Penn State and No. 24 Michigan State are knotted at 14 with halftime finally in the books. The Nittany Lions get the win, and in spectacular fashion - they've got a point to prove after all.

Matt Coghlin kicked a 34-yard field goal as time expired to give Michigan State a 27-24 win over Penn State Saturday in a game that featured a weather delay of almost three and a half hours.
