EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan State will be without
leading receiver B.J. Cunningham for the Capital One Bowl after he
broke his foot in practice.

The school says Cunningham hurt himself Saturday and had surgery
the next day. The junior is expected to recover in time for spring
practice.

The seventh-ranked Spartans face 15th-ranked Alabama in the
Capital One Bowl on Jan. 1.

Cunningham led the team with 50 receptions during the regular
season, for 611 yards and nine touchdowns. Michigan State does have
other options, though. Mark Dell caught 49 passes for 761 yards,
and Keshawn Martin added 29 catches.

Coach Mark Dantonio says wide receiver "is a position of
strength" and that the team can overcome Cunningham's injury.
