(Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)Arizona State just came away with one of the biggest upsets of the day against Michigan State. But apparently on the game’s last play, there should’ve been a penalty called against the Sun Devils. It could’ve change the outcome.The Spartans put together a nice drive with under a minute remaining in the game and down, 10-7. After getting into field goal range and with the clock winding down, the offense spiked the ball. As a result, the field goal unit came out on the field to attempt a tying field goal.The kicker drilled it, but a penalty was called on MSU for 12 men being on the field. On the re-kick, the kicker missed badly and the Sun Devils pulled off the 10-7 upset.But after further review, ASU should’ve been called for a penalty on the re-kick. An Arizona State defender leaped over a Michigan State blocker to try and block the kick. Doing so is now a penalty by rule. Turns out Michigan State should’ve had a 3rd try at the game-tying field [email protected] explains ⬇️ pic.twitter.com/0G7x9vEqoN— FOX College Football (@CFBONFOX) September 15, 2019Mark Dantonio wasn’t happy.“They need to take a good hard look at the officiating. That’s all I’ll say about that,” he said.Mark Dantonio said Arizona State should have been flagged on the last field-goal attempt for hurdling over the snapper.“They need to take a good hard look at the officiating.

This is the second year in a row the Spartans have lost to Arizona State. It’s also their third straight loss to a Pac-12 opponent (lost to Oregon in 2018 Redbox Bowl).If you’re an MSU player or fan, this loss will certainly sting for a while.last_img
