For the first time in a long time, the Spartans expected to beat Michigan in the rivalry matchup.
MSU had plenty of chances, but the Spartans found themselves trailing by 7 in the 4th quarter until a fumble by Chad Henne that sent the game into overtime, tied at 31.
The Spartans failed to score in their possession and all Michigan needed was a Garret Rivas 35-yard field goal for the win.
Thousands of fans were on hand in a jam-packed Spartan stadium and also tailgating outside.
East Lansing police say it was a well-behaved football Saturday. They confirm 3 arrests as of 6:30 p.m. and expect that number to rise as the night wears on.
