With the Spartans down 23–21 to Michigan late in the fourth quarter, sophomore Jalen Watts-Jackson recovered a fumbled snap by punter Blake O’Neill and returned it 38 yards for a touchdown to give Michigan State a 27–23 victory.
Jackson turned a potential upset for the Wolverines into heartbreak in just mere seconds.
Some notable alumni lost their collective minds immediately afterward.
