Michigan State beats Michigan on last-second fumble recovery TD
The Michigan State-Michigan rivalry has ended in many different ways over the course of its 108-year history, but never on a last-second fumble recovery touchdown.
With only 10 seconds left on the clock and a two-point lead, Michigan punter Blake O'Neill bobbled the long snap and Michigan State's Jalen Watts-Jackson scooped up the loose ball and scurried 38 yards to the end zone as time expired for the miraculous game-winning touchdown.
Here's a field level view of the final play:
The score gave the Spartans the 27-23 win to remain undefeated this season.
It was a stunning end to a riveting game and won't soon be forgotten among the many memorable Michigan State-Michigan games. With the win, the Spartans extended its win streak over the Wolverines to four, but Michigan still holds the all-time record at 68-35-5.
As you can imagine, the Michigan State sideline went absolutely crazy after Watts-Jackson scored and the final whistle sounded.
Even former Michigan State and current Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell couldn't contain his excitment after the play.
