The offense of No. 10 Michigan State was in a tough battle against the defense of Indiana throughout Saturday’s game. The defense of Indiana held Michigan State to only 241 total yards accounted for and 14 first downs.

It would take some special and unique plays to get a productive offense going for the Spartans. That unique play came from a play where Michigan State quarterback Payton Thorne handed off the ball to the running back Jordon Simmons who then reversed it to a receiver.

He was met with immediate pressure. The receiver threw to Thorne where the QB made a great catch while being tightly contested.

The play would be ruled incomplete as Thorne’s catch was out of bounds, but a review overturned that call. The play went for 15 yards.

That catch from the quarterback earned great recognition and respect from ESPN as a ‘Moss’ catch over the defensive back.
