Spartans thankful for positional depth

All eyes have been on the running back rotation for MSU, and rightfully so.

It’s easy to see how tailbacks LJ Scott, Gerald Holmes and Madre London impact the game, one way or another. Beat writers are constantly tweeting about who’s on the field. The Spartans have also run some sets with a pair of them on at the same time.

Holmes started against Western Michigan last week, a start head coach Mark Dantonio called “warranted.”

But it was Scott who led the way, bouncing back from his fumbling issues against Bowling Green. He had a pair of touchdowns — one receiving, one rushing — and totaled 86 yards rushing on 18 attempts.
