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.
