Connor Cook's emergence has quieted many of the concerns about Michigan State's offense. The seventh-ranked Spartans are coming off a Rose Bowl victory last season, but even then it was the defense that led the way for the most part.

Van Noy, a second-round pick, was on the field watching the linebackers during individual practice drills Monday and Tuesday.
