he is trying to retain some time on the clock so that in the event of a score. c.j. beathard and his offense have a chance with the football in their hands. >> gus: the running game for michigan state has had almost no success early in the game. but it's the body blows. >> joel: time after time after time. you force the defense to answer the bell. right now all of those body blows are taking huge -- paying huge dividends for michigan state. i would run it again on 3rd and 2 and force iowa to stop me. i won't throw the football unless i am forced to on a 4th down opportunity. >> gus: michigan state 4 for
the freshman running back scott. 233 out of hoy. they give it to him looking. they knock him backwards. wow!ohio. they give it to him looking. they knock him backwards. wow! there is an injured spartan. >> joel: that's conklin and he throws him to the side. right there in the hole to make the pli. the play of the drive so far from iowa. they force one snap of the football for all of the fumbles. >> gus: 4th down and 2 at the 5 yardline for michigan
keeler the right tackle. number 79. michigan state still has 3 timeouts. even if the event they fail, they could fet the ball back. but they would still need that touchdown. >> joel: they ran the ball so effectively on this series. you wonder if mark dantonio will put the ball in the hands of a senior quarterback or his true freshman running running who has been the work horse on this series. >> [crowd noise]
>> gus: 1st down. michigan state. ferentz said come on, guys. the 5th year senior. >> joel: two ways you could think about this. if you are ferentz allowed the touchdown to try to get c.j. beathard back on the field or put it in the hands of the 6th best punt defense in the country and try to have a goal kick. >> referee: 1st down ruling under review. >> joel: they are going to take a look at that spot. nothing jumps off the replay to me that said that was a poor spot. i mentioned that the ball was in his left arm. it's very important to note. as he is spinning. that that's the down field
mike in los angeles, what do you think? >> mike: i agree, joel. we have looked at every angle 3 or 4 times. down. not until his butt gets down is he down. i think it's right at the 3. maybe they were slightly generous in my opinion. down. i don't see anything they being change here at all. >> referee: the ruling on 1st down. >> gus: it was a super bowl in this building that new england allowed new york to score to get tom brady back on the field. iowa could employ that philosophy. knowing kirk ferentz at 12 and 0. he will try to make a stand. 1st and goal at the 3
a minute and 48 to go. lj scott the defense. they give it to him. and he is tackled. gets down to about the 2. maybe the 1.5. clock still running. >> joel: that won't be a factor in this set of downs with 3 timeouts. cook can milk the clock with iowa sitting this with no timeouts. and trying to score with the least amount of time on the clock possible per opportunity. >> gus: 2nd down and goal.
brings up 3rd down and goal. >> joel: king in on the tackle. king having the game of his life. the clock continuing to run. and now mark dantonio will take the timeout. to talk it over. >> gus: what a finish here. 3rd down and goal at the 1. >> joel: this has to be another hand-off or 4th down for the conversion. the important part is if iowa stops michigan state on
was his knee down? >> joel: this will be the definitive look. no, it wasn't. >> gus: nope. >> referee: after further review the ruling of touchdown is confirmed. >> gus: lj scott. from hubbard, ohio. the team's leading rusher this year. 11th touchdown. none bigger. geiger with the extra point. it's good. 27 seconds left. spartans up 16-13. like our ancestors did. [car engine starting] no saber tooth tigers stalking from the brush.
there are no more monsters to fear. [car tires screeching] and so we have to build our own. >> gus: lj scott scoring the biggest touchdown of his young life. michigan state the lead in the big 10 championship. his second effort and strength and determination. 6 feet and 233 pounds. getting the job done. >> [very loud crowd noise]
gets to the 20 and downed. iowa no timeouts left. >> joel: they need for a chance at a tying field goal to get to the 36 or 35 yardline. everything has to be thrown for a 1st down or outside the numbers to stop the clock. >> gus: >> gus: >> gus: 1st and 10. at the 27 for c.j. beathard. beathard. looking deep. goes down. lost it. the clock still running. cooper with the tackle.
remaining. >> joel: they will have to go with the lateral. >> referee: a charged timeout michigan state. adjust the game clock to 5 seconds. >> joel: mark dantonio wants to talk it over with his defense. in order to communicate exactly what the situation is. this guy is a stone turner. it doesn't matter how many rocks he has to turn over. he will find the details.
singling of friends in the nfl and college to talk philosophy. he learned quite a bit. would not share what his philosophy would be. that's what he is going over with his team. >> gus: this could be the final play of the game. 5 seconds remaining. c.j. beathard. throws it over the middle. fumbled. loose. the michigan state spartans are the big 10 champions.
mind on that play? >> player: we live for moments like this. this is what we worked all year for. we worked hard to get to this pot. trying to make a play. .. >> molly: >> molly: connor cook was roughed up. >> player: we are all playing through injuries. i just tried to come through to the team. i give credit to my line for giving the push. >> molly: coach dantonio said your motto is move forward. >> player: just stay humble. now we have to execute at the next level. >> molly: congratulations. >> gus: thank you very much.
