Michigan State got the job done and finishes the season with 10 wins and a contract extension for Mel Tucker. Penn State finishes 7-5 and Kirk Franklin gets a similar contract extension. Draw your own conclusions.
Both Penn State and Michigan State were fighting for championships this season. Penn State skyrocketed up and right back down again. Michigan State was trampling the schedule, including a devastating blow to Michigan, right up until the Purdue Spoilermakers knocked them down and the Buckeyes put them out of their misery. Both teams are solid, tough, and will likely play great bowl games, but the championships will have to wait another season.
