Utilizing a modified scoring system, the Spartans defense came up strong during the nearly three-hour, 183-play "situational" scrimmage on Sunday in Spartan Stadium and on the practice fields.
Four turnovers helped the defense who had fallen to the offense a week ago 67-63 in the first scrimmage of the preseason.
Lippett and Adams made the two biggest plays of the day with Lippett taking back his interception 33-yards for a touchdown, while Adams closed out the scrimmage with a 32-yard score of his own.
They were not alone in making big plays on the day as Tyquan Hammock showed why his move back to defense will be a positive this season with nine tackles to go with an interception he returned for 26 yards.
Taiwan Jones continued to show why he'll have a great chance of seeing early playing time by recording nine assisted tackles on the day.
Also adding to the defensive stats was Taylor Calero who recovered a fumble.
Overall, the first string defense was perfect in the day not allowing the Spartans offense a touchdown.
Offensively the Spartans saw Kirk Cousins complete 11-of-25 passes for 153 yards and an interception. Back-up Andrew Maxwell didn't fare much better going 10-of-23 for 126 yards and two interceptions on the day.
Redshirt freshman Nick Hill led the rushing attack for the second scrimmage in a row with 25 carries for 85 yards. Le'Veon Bell finished with 68 yards and Larry Caper added 66 of his own respectively.
