Michigan State fans celebrate the football team’s win over Michigan on Saturday by burning mattresses and couches and flipping over at least one vehicle among other vandalism acts.
Pictures and videos on social media showed the vandalism taking place in the streets of East Lansing soon after the Spartans’ 37-33 win buoyed by running back Kenneth Walker III’s five-touchdown game. The battle was between unbeaten teams, and Michigan State won the fight against the Wolverines.

Michigan State’s newspaper, The State News, was among those who captured the dangerous acts in East Lansing.
According to The Lansing State Journals, there were several arrests and one SUV was overturned.
East Lansing Police Chief Steve Gonzalez stated that they were “outnumbered”.
Walker ran for 195 yards and five touchdowns on 23 carries. Michigan held a lead of 30-14 at the end of the third quarter. Cade McNamara completed a 19 yard touchdown pass to Mike Sainristil. However, the Wolverines couldn’t stop Cade McNamara who rushed for the Heisman Trophy.

Walker was able to score three touchdowns during the closing 19 minutes. With 3:58 remaining in the quarter, he had scored a touchdown. The game was over when he ran a 58 yard touchdown and a 23 yard go-ahead touchdown. This score occurred after a J.J. McCarthy fumbled during the previous Michigan possession.
Michigan attempted to counter Michigan State during its second-tolast drive. McNamara attempted to gain a first down with a pass play. However, his pass failed. It appeared Michigan State may have committed a pass interference penalty on the play, but referees didn’t throw the flag.
Michigan State’s QB Payton Thone finished the game at 19-for-21 with 196 passing yards, and two interceptions. Jayden Reed snagged six of the passes, which totalled 80 yards.
The Spartans won the game by one point, with Walker as the winner. Walker’s five touchdowns were a career-high for him after he scored four touchdowns against Northwestern the first week of the season.
Michigan’s McNamara was 28-for-44 for 383 passing yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Andrel Anthony had all of these scores in his six catches that he made for 155 yards. Erick All caught 10 passes for 98 yards.
