In just 5 plays they were at Bama’s 13 with 19 seconds and one timeout remaining. I was listening to the 247 Podcast with Sean Fitz and he spent a good deal of time talking about how disappointing it was to whiff on all three MD WR prospects.

But it was his block on two Bama defenders that sprung OSU football’s most iconic play of the decade, his touchdown pass to Michael Thomas before halftime that many consider the second best play of the game (possibly third behind Steve Miller’s pick-six), his herculean effort to leap as high as possible and hold onto the onside kick by his fingertips, may just be the three most important plays in the entire contest.

Even with Urban’s horrendous clock management that resulted in an incomplete bomb, then two straight runs with people not named Ezekiel Elliott, the first being with Curtis Samuel, and the second being Cardale on a designed QB keeper that lost ten yards, Bama had to use both their timeouts and now had a minute and a half to go 82 yards instead of two minutes and two timeouts to go 50 yards. The Buckeyes had gotten the ball back with 1:30 remaining in the half, starting at their own 23. The play itself is fondly remembered by us Buckeye fans, and rightfully so.

But he wasn’t quite finished. Better prepared for title run: 2014 or 2016 Buckeyes? It lead to him standing before all his teammates in the locker room before taking the field and saying that he wasn’t leaving the field that night until either someone kills him or they either won.

Spencer’s MSU segment begins at 20:42). They did it. Thomas, who was tightly covered by Bama’s Cyrus Jones on the play, was able to pluck the high throw from the air, get his left foot down inbounds, and score the first of what would be his many touchdowns inside the Louisiana Superdome. That is value if I’ve ever seen it. He hadn’t attempted a kick that contained even half the pressure as he would have on this occasion.

Come New Year’s Day 2015, it was time to finally play.

To this day, I still believe it’s the best Buckeye game I’ve ever watched. If the Buckeyes wound up winning, Spencer would be immortalized for his signature touchdown pass at the end of the first half. The clock showed triple zeros. Holy shit, they actually did it.

Cardale forgets to gesture Spencer to go in motion, meaning Spencer would be a smidge tardy to his block. That would be his only catch of the game, and would be his final catch as a Buckeye, as he didn’t make a reception in the title game against Oregon.
