Michigan State beat Michigan on the game's final play when Spartan DB Jalen Watts-Jackson recovered a fumble by Michigan punter Blake O'Neill and returned it 38 yards for an improbable touchdown.

Unfortunately, while Watts-Jackson's return made him a hero, it did not come without a steep price. After the game, MSU head coach Mark Dantonio told reporters that the redshirt freshman likely dislocated his hip on the play and had to be carted off the field.

This is very unfortunate. Let's hope Watts-Jackson heals fully and quickly.
