Ringer surpasses 1,000 yard mark in win

In spite of a Northwestern Wildcats defense that stacked the deck with eight and nine men in the box, Ringer rushed for 124 yards and two touchdowns to lead MSU to a 37-20 win over the previously undefeated Wildcats.

EVANSTON, IL - Michigan State tailback Javon Ringer surpassed the 1,000 yard rushing mark late in the second quarter for the Michigan State Spartans becoming just the second Michigan State running back to surpass the 1,000 yard mark since T.J. Duckett did it back in 2000 and 2001.

In spite of a Northwestern Wildcats defense that stacked the deck with eight and nine men in the box, Ringer rushed for 124 yards and two touchdowns to lead MSU to a 37-20 win over the previously undefeated Wildcats.

After the game, Ringer was philosphic about his performance and give most of the credit to his offensive line for his record-setting performance.

"All the credit goes to my offensive line," said Ringer after the game. "They continue to produce and continue to tive me the holes that I need to be able to help move the ball down the field."

The feat was Ringer's fifth 100-yard game in seven contests. He'll have a tougher row to hoe next week when MSU (6-1, 3-0 Big Ten) takes on #12 Ohio State (6-1, 3-0 Big Ten) back home in East Lansing.
