Video: Spartan brothers hook up for trick play

Ever see a linebacker complete a pass to a linebacker? Of course, you haven’t. It happened Saturday in Michigan State’s Green-White Game at Spartan Stadium.

The play was even more rare because brothers were on both ends of it, as redshirt freshman Riley Bullough lined up in the backfield and completed a pass to senior Max Bullough, who lined up at tight end.

Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time the Bulloughs, both listed as linebackers, have hooked up on a pass. The younger Bullough played quarterback in high school and hit his older brother, a tight end then, on several occasions.

This, however, was the first time it happened in college. And it caught the patriarch of the family by surprise. “They didn’t let me know that was coming,” said Shane Bullough, who played at Michigan State (1983-86). “That was pretty cool.”
