Jeremy Langford ran for 177 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 8 Michigan State trounced rival Michigan again, 35-11 on Saturday.

The Spartans (7-1, 4-0 Big Ten) have won six of their past seven games against the Wolverines, only the second time Michigan State has accomplished that in a series that dates to 1898.

The Wolverines (3-5, 1-3) are in danger of missing the postseason in Brady Hoke's fourth year at the helm, and this game did little to ease Michigan's descent in 2014. The Wolverines were held to zero yards rushing in the first half.

Michigan State has won 14 straight against Big Ten opponents. The Spartans have next weekend off before hosting Ohio State in a rematch of last year's conference championship game.
