At kickoff, I believe we were a 10- or 11-point underdog.
It felt like a turd at the time, but that MSU team finished 13-1, #3 in the country.
MSU got called for pass interference about 5 times.
Of course, each one actually was pass interference, so they didn’t really have much to complain about.
So technically, that's true. But what should've been offensive pass interference was a big one in the end zone on, I think, third down. They got screwed on that one. Another was ticky tack I think. But the others they had nothing to complain about.
against. Only way we were able to score in that game is that we got calls against their very aggressive secondary. That game was under the radar at the time and for much of the remainder of the year because Mich St. didn't do much during the regular season but then jumped up the rankings with back to back wins over top 5 teams to end the season.
I could be wrong on that. I don't think we were undermanned in that contest. I believe we had the more talented team. It is one of the few games I thought BK did a decent job of calling plays.
ND dominated the line of scrimmage.
