The catch by Keith Nichols at the end of the game was a jaw-dropping and explosive one. Let's cover that in a moment. The offense performed their part well.
While Le'Veon Bell did fumble on the 25-yard line and they struggled in the first quarter against Wisconsin's defense, they truly stepped up in the second quarter and half of the game. Keshawn Martin scored a 34-yard rushing touchdown on a double-reverse play. This was a scoring drive that was created off of a safety. Martin also scored another TD on a 15-yard pass from Cousins.
B.J Cunningham scored a touchdown in the second quarter on a 35-yard pass on a 4th-and-two. He caught a pass from Cousins in the fourth quarter for a two-point conversion that gave Michigan State a two touchdown lead.
Then, with four seconds left, Michigan State and Wisconsin appeared to be heading into overtime. Kirk Cousins made a scramble to the right and threw a desperate heave into the end-zone as time expired. The ball bounced off Cunningham's face mask and into the hands of Keith Nichols.
It was the former quarterback's first touchdown catch of the season and the most memorable one of his career.
On a side note: Another amazing winner of the game was the fact that Michigan State did not commit a single penalty.
