MSU Passes First Test

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Jehuu Caulcrick's 93 rushing yards and career-high four touchdowns today helped Michigan State roll past Alabama-Birmingham, 55-18.
The game was Mark Dantonio's debut as Spartan coach, but ruined the start of new U-A-B coach Neil Callaway.
Michigan State (1-0) wasted no time unveiling its run-oriented offense. The Spartans had more than 500 yards of offense.
Caulcrick's four rushing TDs were tied for second-most in school history in one game. Blake Ezor had six rushing TDs against Northwestern in 1989.
Caulcrick's scores all came in the first half.
The Blazer's (0-1) were down 45-3 at the half at Spartan Stadium.
Michigan State quarterback Brian Hoyer completed his first 10 passes and also had a 44-yard touchdown pass to Devin Thomas.
