Minnesota At Michigan State Final: Gophers Fall To Spartans, 31-24

Minnesota Golden Gophers' quarterback MarQueis Gray played a fine game in East Lansing on Saturday afternoon against the Michigan State Spartans, but his last pass will have a lot of people wondering what he saw.

With no time outs left and the ball at the Minnesota 10-yard line, Gray drove the Gophers all the way down to the Michigan State 44-yard line with 14 seconds left on the clock. However, on the Gophers' final offensive play, he dropped back to throw, and fired one to the deep left side of the field. From the angle on television, it didn't look like there was a Gopher receiver within 20 yards of the pass, and it fell harmlessly into the arms of Trenton Robinson for his second interception of the day, sealing a 31-24 victory for the Spartans over the Gophers.

Gray, as I said, played an outstanding game this afternoon, completing 19-of-31 passes for 298 yards and three touchdown passes to Da'Jon McKnight, but he had the two key interceptions that turned into points for the Spartans.

The Gophers fall to Michigan State in East Lansing, 31-24. We will have more on this game over the course of the rest of the day.
