But it did have it’s let down moments. On the Spartans first drive of the game, they were able to convert a third and eight with a 49-yard pass. The Spartans then finished of the drive with a 14-yard DeJon Packer run.
Two more low light moments for the defense happened with the game in hand for the Rams. Up 35 to seven with less than seven minutes left, the Rams allowed a 54-yard Malike Roberson touchdown run. The second moment came on the Spartans last drive of the game, where Josh Watson was called for targeting on a potential third down stop for the Rams.
The Rams now get a week off to rest up and prepare for a whichever bowl they are selected to. The Spartans will get to prepare for Wyoming, who may or may not be without Josh Allen.
