KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) -- Madre London ran for two touchdowns in the first several minutes of his college career to help No. 5 Michigan State build a big lead it needed to hold off Western Michigan for a 37-24 victory Friday night.
   The Spartans (1-0) had a 27-7 lead in the second quarter and were up by 24 points in the third. The Broncos (0-1) pulled within 10 points early in the fourth by putting together two long TD drives.
   After giving up a field goal and having a three-and-out possession, Western Michigan drove to the Michigan State 7 with a chance to make the final minutes dramatic. Freshman cornerback Vayante Copeland, though, ended the suspense with an interception in the end zone.
   The Spartans set a school record by scoring 30-plus points for the ninth straight game. They surpassed the 30-point mark in eight consecutive games, spanning the 1978 and 1979 season.
