The wildest ending in recent sports history came at a cost. Obviously, the biggest would belong to the Michigan Wolverines who can kiss any thoughts of making the College Football Playoff goodbye with their second loss of the season. The improbable win for Michigan State also cost them in the eyes of some coaches as even though they were victorious, they loss some votes in the Coaches Poll. An even bigger loss was suffered by the hero during the final play, Jalen Watts-Jackson. Watts-Jackson scored the winning touchdown for MSU but also suffered a fractured and dislocated hip when falling into the endzone. He underwent surgery on Sunday and will miss the remainder of his redshirt freshman season.
However, the biggest cost came at a fan’s expense who happened to be in The Big House during the game and final play. According to Dan Murphy, who covers the Big Ten for ESPN, a fan suffered a heart attack during the final play:
A spokesperson for Michigan says she doesn’t know if the fan was rooting for Michigan or Michigan State.
As of Sunday night there have been no further developments on the status of the fan.
