Talk about a double whammy for Michigan State.

Not only did the Spartans allow the go-ahead touchdown after blowing a 14-point lead, but the Spartans’ best player was ejected on the play.

Malik McDowell delivered a hit on Indiana quarterback Richard Lagow. The refs ruled that he led with the crown of his helmet.

After reviewing it, the call on the field of targeting stood.

If the targeting penalty holds during the week, Michigan State will be without its preseason All-American defensive tackle for the first half next week vs. BYU, as well.

Will it get overturned?
