Phil Friend Lansing State Journal Published 3:25 PM EST Nov 10, 2018 EAST LANSING – By the time this game is over, we may put this play call in the same conversation as the fake punt in the 2015 Colts-Patriots game. With Michigan State only trailing 7-6 with 42 seconds left in the third quarter, the Spartans were pinned on their own 1-yard line on fourth-and-10. Thanks to some crafty Ohio State punts Saturday, MSU spent a lot of the third quarter deep in its own end of the field. To alleviate the issue, Michigan State elected for an intentional safety, as long snapper Ryan Armour deliberately snapped it over the head of punter William Przystup for a safety and a 9-6 OSU lead. However, no field position advantage was gained as Michigan State’s kickoff put the Buckeyes on the 50 and Drue Chrisman’s next punt put the Spartans back on their own 2-yard line. On the very next play, Blake Beuter’s shotgun snap went awry, hitting Laress Nelson, who was in motion in the end zone. Ohio State recovered for a 16-6 lead with 12:22 left in the game.
