  1. File- This Nov. 4, 2017, file photo shows Michigan State running back LJ Scott (3) being tackled by Penn State linebacker Koa Farmer, left, during the first half of an NCAA college football game in East Lansing, Mich. Scott enters his senior season with some impressive career rushing stats: 2,591 yards and 25 touchdowns. A good final season could put him in the top four on the schools career list in both categories but he also has room for improvement. He was part of a team-wide fumbling problem that plagued the Spartans last year. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio, File)
