Wild Finish in East Lansing!

Crazy finish to the end of the Michigan State - Wisconsin game tonight. The previously unbeaten Badgers rallied from 14 points down in the 4th quarter to tie the game at 31, but with 4 seconds remaining and the ball on the Badger 44 yard line Michigan State pulled off a stunning final play. Quarterback Kirk Cousins heaved a hail mary pass towards the end zone where it was deflected into the hands of senior wide receiver Keith Nichol, who hadn't caught a pass all game and hadn't caught a touchdown all year. Nichol brought the pass in at the one yard line and replays showed he just managed to extend it over the goal line for the winning score dealing the Badgers their first loss of the season.

 If you'll recall Michigan State also knocked Wisconsin from the ranks of the unbeaten last year when they upset them in Madison 34-24. The Spartans are now 6-1 on the year and unbeaten in the Big Ten (3-0) having slain Ohio State, Michigan and now Wisconsin in consecutive weeks.
