Ah yes, the inevitable typo. But in this case, I’m not sure such can be claimed.

On Wednesday evening, the Michigan State Spartans defeated the Stanford Cardinals in a thrilling Rose Bowl. The Spartans squeaked by with a four point victory, 24-20, but not according to the team’s official shop who was selling championship gear suggesting the Spartans defeated the Cardinals by a 37-24 score.

The shirt, which featured the Spartan logo, a Rose Bowl logo and the final score was quickly yanked off the website after the error was discovered but quick thinking fans grabbed screenshots of the gaff.

Of course, this is far from the first time we’ve seen a school selling incorrectly scored merchandise and obviously no items with the incorrect score were shipped out. Still, pretty funny.

At least it wasn’t as bad as Notre Dame, who scheduled themselves in for the BCS Championship game and did so on the wrong date.

Oops.
