SPARTY’S BIG HOUSE SHOCKER
Michigan appeared to be on its way to sending rival Michigan State to its first loss.
Instead, the Wolverines were left stunned in the Big House after one of the most unlikely endings to a college football game in recent years.
Jalen Watts-Jackson scooped up a flubbed punt attempt and lumbered 38 yards for a touchdown on the final play of the game, giving No. 7 Michigan State a shocking 27-23 win over No. 12 Michigan.
With the Wolverines ahead 23-21 and 10 seconds left, Michigan punter Blake O’Neill bobbled a low snap, and spun around to try and make the kick. But he was hit, the ball popped free and Watts-Jackson caught it, broke a few tackles in the final yards and made it into the end zone.
The Wolverines were seconds away from sealing the win after Sione Houma ran for two TDs, Kenny Allen kicked three field goals and forcing the Spartans to turn the ball over on downs with 1:47 left at its 45.
The Spartans had only one timeout left and used it after the next snap. Michigan had two and coach Jim Harbaugh used both, including one with 10 seconds left to set up the final punt.
Seth Russell did something for second-ranked Baylor only a Heisman Trophy winner had done before. Corey Coleman is well on the way to his goal of setting a standard for the Bears that will be hard to match.
Russell became the only Baylor quarterback other than Robert Griffin III in 2011 to throw for 300 yards and run for 100 in the same game, and Coleman caught three more touchdowns break the single-season school record as the Bears got a measure of revenge with a 62-38 victory over West Virginia.
Coleman matched and then broke Kendall Wright’s school record, his nation-leading 16th coming halfway through the regular season for the Bears.
He finished with 10 catches for 199 yards, his fourth consecutive game with multiple touchdowns and his seventh in a row with at least 100 yards receiving.
Russell was 20 of 33 for 380 yards and five TD passes, and ran 14 times for 160 yards with another score.
The Bears won their FBS-best 19th consecutive home game.
3-Interceptions returned for touchdowns by No. 10 Alabama against No. 9 Texas A&M, setting a school record.

When things looked bleak, Rutgers just kept punching.
Eventually, the swings started landing.
The Scarlet Knights erased a 25-point third-quarter deficit by converting three fourth-quarter turnovers into touchdowns and Kyle Federico delivered the knockout blow – a 26-yard field as time expired – for an incredible 55-52 victory at Indiana.
But the record-tying comeback was only part of a wild and crazy day that could have been much easier for Rutgers if Federico could have avoided having two extra points blocked.
With 5:25 left in the third quarter, Indiana looked like it would coast to the victory after scoring its fourth straight touchdown of the second half to take a 52-27 lead.
Instead, the Hoosiers botched the snap on a rare punt, Kemoko Turay scooped it up and scored on a 26-yard return – giving Rutgers (3-3, 1-2) the momentum it needed for the finishing flurry.
