Saturday, Michigan State hosts Ohio State in one of the week’s top games. Remember what happened the last time these two teams met? Aside from the absolutely putrid offensive effort, that is. Michigan State linebacker Denicos Allen provided one of the best highlights of the 2011 season, when he went all “Waterboy” on a sack of Joe Bauserman, pictured above.

Funny thing is, the Spartans actually watched Adam Sandler’s “The Waterboy” as a team the night before that game at Ohio Stadium. Clearly, Allen was a fan of the movie and the moves Sandler’s character, Bobby Boucher, used.
Here’s Allen’s play, if you don’t remember it:
Nearly one year to the day of the highlight-reel sack, Allen faces Ohio State again. What does he have in store for Saturday? Whatever it is, it will be hard to top last year’s play. The fact Braxton Miller figures to be under center for all four quarters only complicates matters even more.
