Each week during the season we'll give out Top Spartans honors to the following.
Top Spartan: The one player who played the biggest role in the success of the team in that week's game.
Top Spartan Offense: Player other than the Top Spartan who helped the offense to have success on the field.
Top Spartan Defense: Player other than the Top Spartan who helped the defense to have success on the field.
Chris Norman - Linebacker
Norman was third on the team by posting nine total tackles on the day with one sack, two tackles for loss, one pass break-up and a fumble recovery. In his final season the Detroit, Michigan native is off to a solid start.
Top Spartan Offense
Keith Mumphery – Wide Reciver
If there was one play Michigan State fans came away feeling good about on Saturday it was Mumphery's battle to reach the end zone carrying several Buckeyes with him in the process. On the day the Vienna, Georgia native posted five catches for 79 yards and one touchdown.
Top Spartan Defense
Max Bullough – Linebacker
The junior continues to be the man in the middle that gets things done. Against Ohio State the Mike linebacker posted 12 total tackles with one quarterback hurry and a forced fumble.
