The ending of last night's football match-up between the Irish and the Spartans was epic. The Spartans beat the Irish 34-31 in overtime on a fake field goal.
Ending Summary: The Irish are up 31-28 in OT with the Spartans about to kick a 46-yard field goal to tie. That's what everyone thought, until the punter (Aaron Bates) chucked the ball down field to his tight end (Charlie Gantt) for a 29-yard TD on a fake FG.
Now in it's 87th season, MICHIGAN STATE SPARTAN STADIUM has been a real home field advantage as the Spartans have won 69% of their games.
Michigan State's rushing attack features two backs, freshman Le'Veon Bell and Edwin Baker, that now have over 300 yards each. They were key in the win against Notre Dame because the Irish defense showed fatigue at the end. I believe it helped the gutsy call by the Spartan's Head Coach, Mark Dantonio, as the Irish were not physically or mentally prepared for the play.
College Football is going well for the top two Michigan teams with the Wolverines and Spartans, now each at 3-0. The Spartans are now ranked 25th in the AP Poll.
