The Michigan State offense was struggling at the start of the spring game on Saturday.
The Spartans defense held a 9-7 lead with under a minute left in the first half and the team’s offense scored points after receiving the ball in the red zone. Aside from that scoring drive, the defense had been dominating.
With 2 minutes left in the first half, however, junior quarterback Brian Lewerke started leading a drive.
It ended with a 30-yard toss to Darrell Stewart, who scored to give the Spartans a 14-12 lead going into the second half.
Lewerke with the toss, Stewart with the snag.

The pass from the signal caller was a beauty, and the catch from Stewart wasn’t to be overlooked, either. It’s a spring game, so dropped passes are to be expected. As is the wonky scoring. For every 5 minutes that runs off the clock, the defense scores 3 points.
Regardless, Lewerke’s pass to Stewart was a highlight for the offense.
