If you didn’t watch the final play of the Michigan/Michigan State game, you probably would have been like 99 percent of the country and thought the game was over. I can’t really blame you for that either.
The Wolverines were up by 2 with ten seconds left and were punting the ball away with no man back for the Spartans. At best, the then-third ranked Spartans would have had a few seconds to try and get into the endzone, if any time at all.
That is when disaster struck for the Wolverines and the Spartans won the game on a fumbled snap. Apparently, everyone in the stadium weren’t the only ones that thought the game was over.
Jamal Spencer of WZZM 13 in Grand Rapids was on the scene outside the Big House in Ann Arbor. He reported that the Wolverines’ defense had shut down Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook, which was untrue, but they did shut down the rushing attack of the Spartans.
Spencer went on to report that the Wolverines had won, only to be corrected seconds later as the main anchor, who seemed very dejected, reported that the Spartans had returned a fumble for the touchdown. It was pretty hilarious.
Spencer reported that they would have “a lot more for them in Ann Arbor” as the night went on. Well, he wasn’t lying at all when he said that.
