EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Connor Cook threw three touchdown passes in the first half -- including one hauled in by Aaron Burbridge with a spectacular catch in the end zone -- and No. 4 Michigan State beat Air Force 35-21 on Saturday. Cook ended up throwing for 247 yards and four touchdowns, and Burbridge caught eight passes for 156 yards and three TDs. The highlight was Burbridge's 28-yard scoring reception in the second quarter, when he leaped to make the catch and, as his body stretched parallel to the ground, touched his left foot down in bounds. The Spartans (3-0) were coming off a big win over Oregon, and Air Force's option isn't easy to prepare for, but the Falcons (2-1) never mounted much of an upset threat.
