Michigan State Fans’ Celebration After Michigan Win Gets Dangerous
| Breaking News Updates | Yahoo news
Michigan state fans are celebrating the soccer team’s victory over Michigan on Saturday by burning mattresses and couches and overturning at least one vehicle among other acts of vandalism.
Photos and videos on social media showed the vandalism that took place in the streets of East Lansing shortly after the Spartans’ 37-33 victory backed by the five-touchdown game from full-back Kenneth Walker III. It was an undefeated team battle and it was Michigan State that got the better of the Wolverines.

Michigan state newspaper The State News was among those who captured the dangerous acts in East Lansing.
Several arrests were made and at least one SUV was run over, according to the Lansing State Journal.
“We were outnumbered,” East Lansing Deputy Police Chief Steve Gonzalez told the newspaper.
Walker ran for 195 yards on 23 carries and scored five touchdowns. Michigan led 30-14 with 6:47 left in the third quarter after Cade McNamara threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Mike Sainristil. But the Wolverines failed to stop one of the nation’s top running backs, who pleaded for the Heisman Trophy.

Walker scored three of his five touchdowns in the last 19 minutes of the game. He scored on the goal line in the third quarter with 3:58 to go. He then scored a 58-yard touchdown and a 23-yard touchdown with 5:08 left. The latter score came after JJ McCarthy’s fumble on Michigan’s previous possession.
Michigan attempted to respond to Michigan State on its penultimate haul. McNamara tried to get a first try on a passing game, but his pass was incomplete. Michigan State appeared to have committed a pass interference penalty in play, but the referees did not throw the flag.
Michigan State QB Payton Thorne finished the game 19 for 31 for 196 passing yards and two interceptions. Jayden Reed caught six of those passes for 80 yards.
It was all Walker for the Spartans in the end. Walker’s five touchdowns were a career high for him after scoring four touchdowns against Northwestern in the first week of the season.
McNamara of Michigan was 28 for 44 for 383 passing yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Andrel Anthony had two points among his six catches for 155 yards. Erick All had 10 catches for 98 yards.
