Gary Harris scored 15 points and Keith Appling added 14 points before leaving the game with an injury to help No. 12 Michigan State bounce back from a poor first half to beat No. 18 Minnesota 61-50 Wednesday night.
The Minnesota Vikings had gone 12 years without taking a quarterback in the first round of the draft. With Brett Favre back to retirement, NFL free agency not yet begun and no other proven options on the roster, the Vikings grabbed gritty Christian Ponder from Florida State with the 12th overall pick on Thursday night.
