Photo by Todd Boone ANN ARBOR – Michigan State senior running back Gerald Holmes made 11 carries for 27 yards to help the Spartans beat state rival Michigan 14-10 at the Big House Saturday.

As always, the rivalry game was full of drama, including a downpour that soaked everyone heading into the fourth quarter. Michigan committed five turnovers, including three interceptions thrown by quarterback John O’Korn.

For his career, Holmes has racked up 1,147 yards rushing with 13 touchdowns. His average is 4.5 yards per carry. He’s also made three receptions for 38 yards and one touchdown this season.

Holmes is part of State’s triple threat running back contingent that includes LJ Scott and Madre London.
