The defensive back and special teams regular picked up Michigan’s flubbed punt attempt on the game’s final play and went 38 yards to the end zone to give Michigan State its first lead and the walk-off touchdown.

The play was one of the most unlikely endings in the game’s history, one senior writer Tom Dienhart called “one of the all-time oh-my-gosh-I-can’t-believe-it endings in the history of college football.

Making it all the more wild – and unfortunate – Watts-Jackson broke his hip on the play.

Hear Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio, above, and Jim Harbaugh, below, discuss the final play and the latest meeting in the heated series.
