Michigan State was so sure it had lost to Michigan, it had already given away the trophy

Oh ye of little faith.

How unexpected was Michigan State's last-second win over Michigan? Quantified, MSU only had a 0.2 percent chance of winning before that play.

What does that look like in real life? Michigan State's equipment staff had already dropped off the Paul Bunyan Trophy, the rivalry's traveling trophy, at Michigan's locker room.

Fortunately, they got the trophy back after the win.
