Coordinators Post-game: Warner and Narduzzi

EAST LANSING - With quarterbacks Connor Cook, Tyler O'Connor, and Andrew Maxwell combining for 94 passing yards, Michigan State's struggling pass offense was once again the focal point of the team's postgame press conference.

"The pass game continues to be a big concern," said co-offensive coordinator Dave Warner. "We had a couple throws down the field. I think we need to continue to push the ball down field. I think we dialed up some of those plays more this week than we had in the past. We've just got to make them successful. We're going to keep pushing forward and get things going in the right direction."

Warner is disappointed in the way his offense has performed in their first two non-conference game, but he remains upbeat about the long term potential of the unit.

"I mean certainly there is frustration there, but I'm going to remain absolutely positive," said Warner. "I still totally believe in us as an offense, in our players as an offense. There's frustration there, but at the same time we're going to get it taken care of, because our defense is playing so stinking good that we've got to find a way to help them along."

Michigan State scored its lone offensive touchdown on a two-yard run by Jeremy Langford with 10:12 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Nick Hill carried the ball 9 times for 63 yards. Michigan State rushed for 171 yards.
