Badgers lose to the Spartans on last-second field goal, 25-24
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan State avoided a letdown, keeping its hopes alive to play for the Big Ten title.
Brett Swenson kicked a 44-yard field goal with 7 seconds left, lifting the 22nd-ranked Spartans to a 25-24 comeback win over Wisconsin on Saturday.
Michigan State (8-2, 5-1 Big Ten) came out flat and seemed to be headed for a 1-5 record in games following its last six wins against Michigan, but took its only lead of the game when the game was on the line.
Wisconsin (4-5, 1-5) hurt its chances of playing in a seventh straight bowl game after leading in the fourth quarter for the seventh time in nine games.
