blows are taking huge -- paying huge dividends for michigan state. i would run it again on 3rd and 2 and force iowa to stop me. i won't throw the football unless i am forced to on a 4th down opportunity. >> gus: michigan state 4 for 4 on 3rd downs this drive. the freshman running back scott. 233 out of hoy. they give it to him looking. they knock him backwards. wow!ohio. they give it to him looking. they knock him backwards.

they will measure it. cook lowers his shoulder. >> joel: and the ball was in the left arm. >> gus: he got it. >> [cheers and applause] >> gus: 1st down. michigan state. ferentz said come on, guys. the 5th year senior. >> joel: two ways you could think about this. if you are ferentz allowed the touchdown to try to get c.j. beathard back on the field or put it in the hands of the 6th best punt defense
have a goal kick. >> referee: 1st down ruling under review. >> joel: they are going to take a look at that spot. nothing jumps off the replay to me that said that was a poor spot. i mentioned that the ball was in his left arm. it's very important to note. as he is spinning. that that's the down field arm. mike in los angeles, what do you think? >> mike: i agree, joel. we have looked at every angle 3 or 4 times. down. not until his butt gets down is he down. i think it's right at the 3. maybe they were slightly generous in my opinion. down. i don't see anything they
>> referee: the ruling on the field stand. 1st down. >> gus: it was a super bowl in this building that new england allowed new york to score to get tom brady back on the field. iowa could employ that philosophy. knowing kirk ferentz at 12 and 0. he will try to make a stand. 1st and goal at the 3 yardline for michigan state. a minute and 48 to go. lj scott the defense. they give it to him. and he is tackled. gets down to about the 2. maybe the 1.5. clock still running. >> joel: that won't be a factor in this set of downs with 3 timeouts.
iowa sitting this with no timeouts. and trying to score with the least amount of time on the clock possible per opportunity. >> gus: 2nd down and goal. lj doesn't get in. brings up 3rd down and goal. >> joel: king in on the tackle. king having the game of his life. the clock continuing to run. and now mark dantonio will take the timeout. to talk it over.

go with the lateral. >> referee: a charged timeout michigan state. adjust the game clock to 5 seconds. >> joel: mark dantonio wants to talk it over with his defense. in order to communicate exactly what the situation is. this guy is a stone turner. it doesn't matter how many rocks he has to turn over. he will find the details. after the nebraska game he called around to his singling of friends in the nfl and college to talk about end of the game philosophy. he learned quite a bit. would not share what his philosophy would be. that's what he is going over with his team. >> gus: this could be the final play of the game. 5 seconds remaining.
