KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) – Madre London ran for two touchdowns in the first several minutes of his college career to help the fifth-ranked Spartans build a big lead they needed to hold off Western Michigan for a 37-24 victory Friday night.
The Spartans (1-0) had a 27-7 lead in the second quarter and were up by 24 points in the third. The Broncos (0-1) pulled within 10 points early in the fourth by putting together two long TD drives.
After giving up a field goal and having a three-and-out possession, Western Michigan drove to the 7 with a chance to make the final minutes dramatic. Freshman cornerback Vayante Copeland, though, ended the suspense with an interception in the end zone.
”It’s our first game. We all have our struggles,” Spartans receiver DeAnthony Arnett said. ”Next week, we’ll come out more focused and more prepared.”
