Many Spartans and Big Ten fans will remember the thrilling fourth quarter comeback that MSU was able to pull off, overcoming a 20 point deficit. Michigan State was able to successfully grab an onside kick, block a field goal, and score 21 unanswered points to pull off the shocking upset. I’m sure that many Spartan fans will tune in simply to relive the glory and resiliency of that win. As a Spartan fan myself, I can say it is surely a game we Spartans will never forget. Here’s to many more in 2015-2016. Go Green!


Here’s a quick recap in case you may have forgotten one of the best comebacks in College Football history.
