Michigan vs Michigan State 2012, the battle for one of the strangest trophies in college football, the Paul Bunyan Trophy. Michigan State has beaten us the past 4 years, and we were ready for that to change. The streets were packed getting to the stadium:

The band came out onto the field sounding and looking impressive as ever, the team then followed under the Go Blue banner:
Then there was some football played, it was quite an interesting game, we never scored a touchdown, and they only scored one. Things got ugly at times, our offense couldn't move the ball or we'd get in the red zone and couldn't get into the end zone. Then there was the one long drive our defense gave up, that's when I really started worrying.

Into the second half it was a 1 and 2 point game changing leads every time one team would score. We couldn't convert with 2 minutes left, I thought we were done for. But wait, we got the ball back with less than a minute in good field position, if we could just get 20 more yards we would be in field goal range. Dileo came up with a HUGE catch to set up Gibbons for a 38 yard field goal. I couldn't watch, but then I heard it, the crowd went nuts, I was shaking so hard all my next pictures were blurry!

|OMG he just made that kick!!!|

|Oh yeah, we eventually made our way onto the field too!|
