Spartans Lose In Final Seconds…Again

Michigan State was poised to continue its redemption.

After a rough start to the season – including last second losses to Iowa and Michigan – Sparty made a last second comeback of its own against Wisconsin.

They scored on the last drive against the Badgers and won it in overtime. 

The Spartans hoped it would be the spark that would carry them through the rest of the season.

But it wasn't to be.

The Spartans led against the 20th ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers…until the last second.

The last 6 seconds, to be accurate. 

The highly regarded Spartan defense folded in the final drive.

With 1:20 on the clock and no timeouts, Cornhusker quarterback Taylor Martinez started it with a 22-yard pass.

Then, on 4th and 10 with 40 seconds left, Martinez hit a receiver for another 38 yard pass.

Then, following a controversial pass interference call against MSU, Martinez found a man in the corner. They added the extra point.

Final score: Nebraska 28, MSU 24.

MSU drops to 5-5 overall and 2-4 in the Big Ten.

The loss destroys whatever slim hopes the Spartans had of winning the division.
