Cousins finds Cunningham on two second-half TDs

EVANSTON - Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins knocked down a pair of records on the at Northwestern Saturday.
The fifth-year senior captain moved passed Jeff Smoker in career touchdown passes (62) and 200-yard pass games (24) after completing 14-of-20 passes for 214 yards and a pair of touchdowns on a rainy wet day on the road.

"I think it goes to show the stability we have in this program," said Cousins, who is now 8-0 as a starter in November the past two seasons. "It means a great deal more to the guys around me than to me, I think. We all care so much about one another.

Cousins found classmate B.J. Cunningham on both touchdown passes. The first of Cousins' two touchdown passes was 33-yard scoring strike on third-and-13.
