Michigan State (7-1-1, 1-0-0 Big Ten) capitalized on a counterattack opportunity to equalize on a goal from Allyson Krause in the 38th minute.
Michigan State's Annie Steinlage then headed in a corner kick in the 99th minute of overtime to give the Spartans the win.
Purdue suffered its second overtime loss of the season, both coming on the road, while playing in its fourth overtime contest overall. The Boilers are now 1-2-1 in games longer than 90 minutes this season.
In her Big Ten debut, Pawlik managed to score for the fifth time in the last four games since returning from an injury that sidelined her for the first two games of Purdue's recent five-game homestand.

Purdue returns to action on Friday at Nebraska. The game is set to begin at 5:30 pm.
