Michigan State football blows game to Indiana, 39-31, in 2OT

EAST LANSING — It took Indiana lower than two minutes Saturday to put a serious scare into Michigan State football’s quest for bowl hopes. It appeared to be a minor blip.

It turned out to be extra than simply fleeting concern in the frigid air. It was a harbinger of an epic catastrophe to come.

The Spartans blew a 17-point lead in the second half in catastrophic trend, with breakdowns in each part of the game. A 79-yard landing run by the Hoosiers’ Shaun Shivers, then an 88-yard kickoff return by teammate Jaylin Lucas. A Payton Thorne interception on the following MSU play led to a area purpose. Then a floor march pulled Indiana right into a tie with Josh Henderson’s 1-yard landing early in the fourth quarter.
