PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — No. 11 Michigan State won its sixth straight game, beating Rutgers 31-13.

Jalen Nailor caught touchdown passes of 63, 63 and 65 yards from Payton Thorne as the Spartans used their big-play offense to remain unbeaten.

Kenneth Walker, who came into the game leading all Football Bowl Subdivision players in rushing, ran for 233 yards, including a 94-yard touchdown.

That was the longest offensive play in Michigan State history.

The Spartans are off to their best start since 2015, when they reached the College Football Playoff.
