EAST LANSING, Mich. (97.1 The Ticket) -- The rivalry showdown between Michigan and Michigan State took a turn early in the second half when the Spartans forced the game's first turnover, a Chris Evans fumble inside the Wolverines' own 10-yard-line.

Michigan State capitalized two plays later when head coach Mark Dantonio dipped into his bag of tricks, calling a "Philly Special" of sorts.

Quarterback Brian Lewerke took the snap and pitched to running back LJ Scott, who then flipped it to Darrell Stewart, Jr. He threw a pass to Lewerke, who snuck off to the right and was completely uncovered in the end zone for the game-tying score.

Michigan went on to bounce back, taking home the Paul Bunyan Trophy with a 21-7 win.
