Stock Market: Northwestern edition

Looking at the risers and fallers in MSU's 30-6 win at Northwestern as a few offensive players helped themselves, while a couple players didn't have their best showings of late.


Connor Cook

Cook continues to get stronger and stronger week by week. He might have had his best drive of the season, going 5 of 6 for 81 yards and finishing with a 15-yard strike to Josiah Price for a touchdown.

He finished 15 of 23 for a career-high 287 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He has been the X-factor and he is why Michigan State is playing so well lately – in large part.

Jeremy Langford

Langford and Cook are so much similar in their progressions. Both entered the season without being the certain starters, but now have cemented themselves nicely. Langford broke the 1,000-yard mark for the season Saturday, as he had 150 yards a week after putting up a career-high 151 at Nebraska.

He would have passed that mark if he played much late. He also had his third straight game with a fourth-quarter touchdown from at least 37 yards.

Aaron Burbridge

After not playing much since the Indiana win on Oct. 12, Burbridge made his return and had a pair of catches on a scoring drive. He finished with the two grabs for 22 yards.


MacGarrett Kings

Kings had a really bad drop Saturday. He was open with room to run but took his eye off the ball and dropped it. He also had a drop last week at Nebraska. After being so sure-handed for much of the year, he has struggled a little bit lately. (Maybe it's that winter cold for a guy from Florida?)

Ed Davis

Davis whiffed badly on a pair of tackle attempts on Northwestern quarterback Trevor Siemian, including one that he was juked on badly.
