Brian Lewerke Brilliant as Michigan St. Routs Washington St. in Holiday Bowl

The Michigan State Spartans extended the Big Ten's early dominance in the bowl season Thursday with a commanding 42-17 victory over the Pac-12's Washington State in the Holiday Bowl at SDCCU Stadium in San Diego.

Michigan State completed its turnaround from last year's 3-9 effort with its 10th win of the 2017 campaign thanks to an impressive performance from quarterback Brian Lewerke. The sophomore threw for 213 yards, ran for 73 more and connected with Cody White twice and Felton Davis III once on touchdown passes.

The Spartans propelled the Big Ten to 3-0 in the bowl season with five games remaining.
