    That was the biggest comeback in NCAA I-A History! They rallied from 35 points down in the third quarter, then Swenson kicked a game winning field goal. The Spartans snapped a four game losing streak.
    Before this game, the biggest comeback was: 31 points -- when Maryland beat Miami 42-40 on Nov. 10, 1984 and when Ohio State defeated Minnesota 41-37 on Oct. 28, 1989

    They disgust me. It totally doesn't matter so they win a meaningless game.

    It's nice that they won. The comeback is slightly more incredible than the way Notre Dame came back to beat them a few weeks ago.

    B.F.D!

    This game should re-open the eyes of a lot of pro scouts. I expect Stanton to have a pretty respectable pro career. Tough-as-nails, a great completion % regardless of all the dropped passes, will pull the ball in to get the 1st down on his own if no one's open, generally makes good decisions, and is a great team leader. He could have had an even better college career had John L not spent so many games playing not to lose.

    Tater...being a Sparty yourself...you have truly succumb to the dark side :starwars:

    The Sith is a myth, I believe.

    The dark side is the truth. The Sith grow in power all the time. Look around you. Soon you will transform into Darth Detteam.

    Hopefully Stanton's career isn't ruined by the Lions choosing to draft him.

    For anyone interested in seeing the replay of the Spartan's NCAA history making comeback last Sat...it's on ESPN Classics right now. Northwestern up 7-3 at the end of the first.

    The Wolverines won 17-3 over Northwestern. They gave them a scare, especially when we were thirty point favorites. Mike Hart ran for 95 yards and a touchdown. There offense wasn't clicking, but there defense made up for it. Everyone is still waiting for the No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup at Ohio State in mid November.
    Michigan State looked downright awful, losing 46-21. Kellen Lewis threw five touchdown passes, including a school-record four to James Hardy, and ran for another score. Indiana scored 46 stright points after Michigan state had a 7-0 lead.

    In defense of Michigan's sluggish offensive output today, the weather here was intensely crappy, they are starting their third-string tight end, and they're missing their number one big play option. there wasn't a whole lot to do besides grind it out on the ground and with short screens and that they did quite well.

    watching OSU demolish Minnesota right now... man, they are potent! If both teams are undefeated when they meet, it'll be a great game, but UM defense had really better bring it.
