Twitter explodes following MSU-Nebraska controversial ending



On Saturday night, the Michigan State Spartans suffered their first defeat of the 2015-’16 football season, falling 39-38 to the Nebraska Cornhuskers on the road in Lincoln.

Nebraska scored 12 points in the final two minutes of the game, capped off by a controversial touchdown with 17 seconds remaining, where the Nebraska receiver appeared to step out of bounds before coming back into play and was the first to touch the ball. However, the referees said he was forced out by the Spartans defensive back, thus negating the rule and allowing the touchdown to stand.

To say it sparked a ton of chit chat in the cesspool known as Twitter would be the understatement of the century. From Spartan fans to rivals of MSU, mainly those who support the maize and blue, and everything in between, EVERYONE had an opinion on what transpired late Saturday night.

Here is former Vice President of Officiating for the NFL, Mike Pereira:
