Ari­zona State edges No. 18 Michi­gan State in wild last minute

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Sports -

Eno Ben­jamin reached the ball to the goal line for a 1-yard touch­down run with 50 sec­onds re­main­ing, and Ari­zona State beat No. 18 Michi­gan State 10-7 on Saturday af­ter the Spar­tans had a ty­ing field goal negated for hav­ing too many men on the field.

Matt Cogh­lin’s 42-yard kick ap­peared to have tied it with 6 sec­onds re­main­ing, but a re­play showed too many men on the field for Michi­gan State, which had rushed the field goal team on in a dis­or­ga­nized fash­ion.

Cogh­lin had to try again from farther back af­ter the penalty, and he hooked the kick left for his third miss of the day.
