Although they’re on the road to face Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game, the main knock on the Michigan State Spartans is that they have no offense. They have one of the best defenses in the country, but they’re not know for their efficiency to move the ball down the field.

However, on the third play of the drive, QB Connor Cook and WR Bennie Fowler took care of that.
Cook dropped back to pass and lofted one down the left sideline toward Fowler, who managed to fight off the defender, tip the ball to himself, and then race off to the end zone for an incredible 87-yard touchdown:
