One for the Ages. 
Michigan State defeated the Badgers in dramatic last-second fashion in an absolute game for the ages. If this game wasn't an Instant Classic for ESPN Classic, then nothing is.  (

Hero of the Day. 
Former Oklahoma QB Keith Nichol transferred to Michigan St. hoping to lead the Spartans to victory under center. Instead, he became a wide receiver and scored the dramatic last-second winning touchdown against Wisconsin, guaranteeing him football immortality in East Lansing. (The Lansing State Journal)

Let's Twist Again.
