Home cookin'? Controversial ruling on fumble goes Michigan State's way, wipes UM TD off the board
We have more controversy in East Lansing.
It looked like Michigan linebacker David Ojabo strip-sacked Michigan State quarterback Payton Thorne and Aidan Hutchinson recovered it in the end zone for a huge touchdown. But upon replay review, the referees decided Thorne’s shin was down before the ball came out — wiping out the touchdown to keep the Wolverines’ lead at 20-14.
What do you think?
Another review decision goes Michigan State's way.

It’s the second time Michigan State caught a break on a review. Earlier, Kenneth Walker III came dangerously close to fumbling at the goal line, which would’ve been a touchback since it was knocked out of bounds. The call stood, and Michigan State got on the scoreboard.
There was plenty of hype surrounding Michigan-Michigan State. It’s sure living up to the hype. Michigan leads 23-14 at halftime on FOX.
You won’t want to miss the second half.
