Michigan State quarterback Drew Stanton is facing a hefty dinner tab.
Stanton owes his offensive linemen a meal after setting a school record with 410 yards of total offense in yesterday's 51-17 win over No. 19 Minnesota in East Lansing, Mich.
"That's already planned," Stanton said of the upcoming dinner. "I'll get my piggy bank out, because I've got six hungry guys here."
The win kept bowl hopes alive for the resurgent Spartans (4-3, 3-1 Big Ten). The Golden Gophers (5-2, 2-2) have lost two straight.
Stanton passed for 308 yards and ran for 102 more. His yardage tops the previous school record of 393 set by Jeff Smoker against Fresno State in 2001.
Michigan State gained 407 yards in the first half, a school record, while taking a 31-10 lead. The Spartans finished with 636 yards of offense.
"We're putting up a lot of yards, and we've got good balance with the run and the pass," guard William Whitticker said.
The offense has clicked since Stanton entered the starting lineup four games ago. Stanton, a sophomore, was slowed early in the season because of a knee injury.
"He has all the confidence in the world, and we have the same in him on the field," center Chris Morris said.
The production came despite cold, rainy conditions with temperatures in the low forties at Spartan Stadium. The Spartans are 9-3 against ranked teams at home since 1998.
The Spartans rolled up 324 rushing yards. Jehuu Caulcrick had 94 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries.
Stanton was 20 of 31 with three touchdowns, including two to tight end Eric Knott. Terry Love also caught a touchdown pass. Stanton threw two interceptions.
Minnesota couldn't get its running attack untracked, finishing with 102 yards. Laurence Maroney had 54 yards on 13 carries and Marion Barber III had 36 yards on eight carries.
Minnesota entered the game averaging 301 yards rushing per game, third-best in the nation behind Rice and Texas.
Minnesota quarterback Bryan Cupito was 11 of 33 for 211 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
"They took it to us, and it kind of turned into an embarrassment," Cupito said.
* IOWA 33, OHIO STATE 7: In Iowa City, Drew Tate passed for three touchdowns and ran for another to help the Hawkeyes saddle the 25th-ranked Buckeyes with their third straight loss.

Ohio State (3-3 overall) is 0-3 in the Big Ten for the first time since 1988 after its worst loss since a 46-20 setback to Illinois in 1999. Only a touchdown with 2 minutes 19 seconds remaining kept the Buckeyes from being shut out for the first time since 1993.
