Michigan State shook up the BCS title chase again Saturday night.
The No. 10 Spartans regained the lead on Connor Cook's 9-yard touchdown pass to Josiah Price with 11 minutes, 41 seconds left and upset No. 2 Ohio State, 34-24, to take the Big Ten title in Indianapolis and put Auburn back in the national title hunt.
Ohio State (12-1) had the nation's longest active winning streak end at 24 as coach Urban Meyer suffered his first loss since taking over in Columbus.
It was a game that almost defied logic.
The Spartans (12-1) led by 17-0 after 21 minutes, then gave up the next 24 points before scoring the final 17.
Michigan State sealed the victory, and its probable trip to the Rose Bowl, with Jeremy Langford's late 26-yard TD run. The Spartans haven't played in Pasadena since 1988.
As the third quarter began, with Michigan State ahead 17-10, a mass e-mail from Auburn's media relations department hit in boxes everywhere. Subject: "Auburn Football Resumé."
