But on Saturday, the Michigan State Spartans might have topped that.
The No. 7 Spartans were trailing No. 12 Michigan 23-21 with just 10 seconds left.
Jalen Watts-Jackson's 38-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown may have given Michigan State an exhilarating victory in Ann Arbor over Michigan, but it didn't give Michigan State any boost in the polls. It is the worst.
About 20 years from now, Michigan State fans and alumni will be telling the tale of the Spartans stunning, last second comeback win over Michigan in Ann Arbor.
Michigan interim athletic director Jim Hackett is standing between Wolverines punter Blake O'Neill and the social-media scorn from Michigan's own fans. The Salukis have dropped four games by a total of eight points after falling at Indiana State 39-36. "The game's not over until there's no time on the clock". In this type of punt look, each offensive player has to count from outside in when determining whom they are going to block.
Connor Cook said he felt like he was living a dream. A&M and Ole Miss play next week in what is essentially an elimination game for the SEC West race. Sometimes a team wins that doesn't lead until there's 0:00 on the clock.
"Our guys played big in a big game, overcame so much, calls that were made and calls that weren't made".
O'Neill already was a graduate student during his year at WSU, having earned a degree in Australia, and was a junior in eligibility in 2014. You're looking for toughness, he plays with toughness. On the next drive, the Spartans went for it on fourth down instead of kicking a field goal into the wind.
Elsewhere, top-ranked Ohio State won comfortably against Pennsylvania State, Baylor made it 19 consecutive home wins by downing West Virginia, and Texas Christian was too good for Iowa State.
A matchup with seventh-ranked Michigan State was going to be the final validation - proof that the Wolverines really were back among the conference's elite.
Yes, Michigan fans are surely exhausted of losing to Michigan State, and the way it happened Saturday added a whole new dimension to their pain and suffering.
In one 90-second unedited shot, we see how the NCAA and the NFL want football portrayed as what the sport actually is at its base level: strong grown men hitting each other at maximum speed. "You know, things happen".
And, then, suddenly it all dissolved into disbelief. The team just needed to punt the ball, and let time expire. There was no time to process what was happening, no time to react.
"So not only do they come with punting skills, but they come with ball skills", Miles said. "It just bring you closer together (and) we're already a tight-knit group". "Everyone was just mind-blown".
Following the conclusion, there was no postgame handshake between Harbaugh and Dantonio. OSU took over at the Longhorn 18-yard line and kicked the game-winning field goal with six seconds left. Utah is still getting a lot of credit for beating Michigan in the season opener, because of what the Wolverines have gone on to do. But every now and then college football makes fools out of common sense and justice.
Southern Illinois-Carbondale has suffered more than its share of painful losses this season. That's when it's at its most attractive.
