EAST LANSING, Mich., Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Connor Cook threw a touchdown pass and Jeremy Langford ran for a TD Saturday as No. 11 Michigan State beat Minnesota 14-3 to cap an undefeated Big Ten season.

Cook threw for 143 yards overall and Langford rushed for 134 yards for the Spartans (11-1, 8-0 Big Ten).

Michigan State won its final eight games of the season and will face Ohio State in next week's Big Ten championship game.
