Cotton Bowl: Michigan State 42, Baylor 41

0

CFBFR Player of the Game: Shilique Calhoun, Michigan State DE
Three Things to Know…
1. Calhoun was unstoppable

Shilique Calhoun recorded one sack, his only tackle of the game. But that doesn’t even begin to describe the impact he had on Bryce Petty and the Bears’ offense.

Calhoun was a terror, lining up on both ends of the defensive line and recording a game-high 11 pressures (one sack, three hits, seven hurries). Incredibly, nine of Calhoun’s pressures came in the second half.

2. Cook was erratic, but got the job done

Cook did not make things easy on himself, making  a number of poor decisions and wild throws. Most notably, Cook’s sidearm toss while falling to the ground—apparently aimed at an offensive lineman—resulted in an interception which Taylor Young nearly took to the house.

10 of Cook’s 42 attempts were charted as uncatchable, a pitiful 23.8 percent. By comparison, Bryce Petty only uncorked three uncatchable passes in 50 aimed targets (six percent).

But when it mattered most, Cook was locked in, completing seven of 11 attempts on third and fourth down.

3. Petty strong despite offensive line

Baylor’s bookend tackles Spencer Drango and Pat Colbert combined to allow nine hurries, four hits, one sack and committed two penalties for 10 yards. It was an ugly performance which kept Petty on his heels.

But Petty delivered, completing 10 of 17 passes on his 22 dropbacks under pressure.

From the clean pocket, Petty picked apart the Michigan State secondary, completing 27 of 34 attempts for 268 yards. At that rate, with more consistent time in the pocket, the outcome could easily have swung in Baylor’s favor.
