Highlights: Northwestern Falls to Legends Division Champ MSU on Senior Day

Big Ten Legends Division champion Michigan State (10-1, 7-0) earned a 30-6 victory over Northwestern in the Wildcats’ final home contest of 2013 Saturday afternoon in Evanston. Both teams, as well as a crowd of 40,013, braved unseasonably cold temperatures that hovered in the mid-20’s with wind chills dipping into the single-digits.

In his final game at Ryan Field, senior PK Jeff Budzien overcame the conditions to kick two field goals, along the way becoming Northwestern’s all-time scoring leader with 267 career points. Budzien’s total topped the previous mark of 262 held since 1998 by former kicker Brian Gowins. A Lou Groza Award candidate, Budzien also matched the school single-season record for field goals with 20 — tying both Gowins (1997) and Amado Villarreal (2008) — and has an opportunity to break the mark in next week’s game at Illinois.
