Keon Coleman torches Michigan defense with pair of big grabs, including TD for MSU
Keon Coleman is hitting his stride against Michigan, and the Wolverines might need to consider making a switch to its man-to-man coverage in the secondary.
Michigan State had stalled out offensively on the first few possessions of the game in Ann Arbor. Then, the Spartans found some success late in the first quarter, particularly with the connection between Payton Thorne and Coleman.
Facing a 3rd-down, Thorne put up a pass into a one-on-one situation for Coleman down the sideline. Coleman came down with the jump ball for a huge first down and a 29-yard gain.
After a short gain on first down, Thorne and the offense came right back to Coleman. This time, the secondary of Michigan tried to rotate to the deep ball, but the safety over the top was a bit late.
The catch was impressive with Coleman scoring from 26 yards to make it 7-3, Spartans at the end of the first quarter.

There’s still a lifetime to go in this game, but the Spartans are doing what they need to in order to hang in this one.
