Spartans make right call despite result

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Don Treadwell made the right call to go for the touchdown on fourth-and-1 from the Wisconsin 1-yard line.

His play call and the Spartans' execution were poor, as a tight end slipped on the play, but Treadwell is making good big-picture decisions today. Playing at home with the defense playing relatively well and the run game humming, you go for it.

The Spartans' defense picked up Treadwell by forcing a three-and-out, and Michigan State continues to win the field-position battle, which could be huge down the stretch.
