Michigan State 27 Wake Forest 21: 5 Thoughts On The Pinstripe Bowl

By

4. Brian Lewerke’s big finish

The Spartan quarterback was a massive disappointment as a junior after a terrific sophomore campaign. He threw just eight touchdowns with 11 picks last year, but everything was supposed to be fine this year in a bounce back season.

Not really.

He wasn’t awful, but he wasn’t consistent, wasn’t accurate, and he threw 16 touchdown passes with 12 picks. However, the team was 3-0 when he threw for 300 yards or more.

He completed 26-of-37 passes for 320 yards and a score with a pick, and ran for 46 yards and a touchdown.

There were a few big connections, and his line gave him plenty of time to work, but this was a fantastic game to close out his career.
