Michigan State fans got a real scare early in the Spartans’ opener against Jacksonville State. Right after throwing a long touchdown to Tony Lippett, starting quarterback Connor Cook took a nasty late hit from Gamecocks safety Folo Johnson.

Luckily, Cook was checked out on the sideline, and reentered the game, and has hit Lippett for a second touchdown, giving Michigan State a quick 14-0 lead. For a while there, it seemed like the Big Ten may have lost its second star quarterback, but luckily Cook is okay.
Connor Cook on the field and taking the snaps. Great news for Michigan State.

Cook is having himself a game early on. He is a perfect 4-for-4 passing, for 151 yards and two touchdowns.
