Earlier this year, Michigan State knocked off Michigan on the game's final play, preserving its undefeated season. Saturday night, the Spartans found out what it's like to lose a heartbreaker. Nebraska, behind two touchdowns in the game's final two minutes, defeated Michigan State at home. The Cornhuskers' final score came on a very controversial play.

With 17 seconds to play, Tommy Armstrong Jr. found Brandon Reilly for a 30-yard touchdown. Reilly went out of bounds before catching the ball, but the referees determined that he was "forced" out. Here's the replay - you can make your own decision.
