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.
