Michigan State run defense rejoins nation's elite

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) When the Michigan State coaching staff dissected last year's unexpected collapse, they knew that one of the main culprits was an uncharacteristically porous run defense.

So far this season, it's proven to be a one-year anomaly. The 18th-ranked Spartans have returned to their old, hard-nosed, run-stuffing ways, paring more than 65 yards per game off their average.

"We go back to that `Spartan Dawg' thing I talked about all offseason: That's something that's a part of it. We're not allowing teams to run on us. We're priding ourselves on that, and that's our No. 1 goal, every week," middle linebacker Joe Bachie said. "Just playing with confidence. Last year, it maybe got away from us a little bit. But I don't really like to talk about that much. This year, we're flying around, having fun, and the confidence is growing."
