Connor Heyward is showing off some moves.

On Michigan State’s first drive against Maryland, the Spartans pieced together a 12-play, 79-yard scoring drive. It was capped by an 18-yard touchdown run from Connor Heyward, who showed off a few moves on his way to the end zone.

It was exactly the kind of start Michigan State wanted in College Park.

Heyward entered Saturday’s game with 201 yards and three touchdowns on 55 rushing attempts. He has appeared in all eight of Michigan State’s games this season.

The running back hasn’t been particularly effective the last two weeks, rushing for just 10 yards on five carries. He’s already making an impact in College Park.

Michigan State needs a big game from its backup ball carriers as LJ Scott was not available for the contest.
