Michigan State vs. Wisconsin
Nate and I went to the MSU vs. Wisconsin game yesterday with one of his football coaches and his son. It was a perfect day for college football. The colors at MSU had turned, it was just cool enough to feel like fall yet sunny enough to not have to wear a jacket.
We had great seats on the North End of the end-zone about the 20th row up. We were right up front to watch Javon Ringer run this one in.
MSU's offense was hurting a bit with Ringer recovering from the flu and Mark Dell injured, but it was still an amazing game to be Nate's first MSU football game ever. The crowd was on it's feet the whole fourth quarter going nuts, causing Wisconsin to take a couple of penalties due to the noise. The place went nuts when Wisconsin's coach drew penalties for his sideline behavior.
Winning the game with seven seconds left put the crowd over the top. There were high-fives and conversations with total strangers.
