Get ready for football by watching these two LEGO videos of historic MSU plays

Sep 23, 2016

Two memorable Michigan State football plays have been encapsulated in stop-motion LEGO videos.

The Detroit Free Press reports that Jared Jacobs, a 38-year-old sports fanatic has recreated two of the most memorable plays from the Mark Dantonio era of Spartan football.

This past August, Jacobs published on his Instagram account a LEGO video he made of MSU's bizarre game-winning touchdown at the University of Michigan last season.

Now, Jacobs has published a video that depicts MSU's "Hail Mary" touchdown against the University of Wisconsin Badgers five years ago.

During that play nearly half a decade ago, Kirk Cousins, who is now playing for the Washington Redskins, threw a 44-yard touchdown pass to Keith Nichol. Of course, it took the replay officials a few moments to make sure Nichol had, in fact, crossed the goal line. 

Jacobs, who lives in Boise, Idaho, began making LEGO remakes of scenes from the hit show "Breaking Bad" four years ago, according to the Detroit Free Press

Although Jacobs was approached by the Big Ten Network to recreate the "Miracle at the Big House" play, he knew while watching the game that he would recreate it. 

More from the Detroit Free Press:

"That was such an iconic moment that stuck with me, watching the game as it happened, and I didn't even have any stake in that game," said Jacobs, who's a Boise State fan. "Just as a college football fan, it was an amazing game."

Jacobs also has made LEGO videos of moments from the 2016 NBA finals and the Brigham Young University Cougars "Hail Mary" touchdown against the Nebraska Corn Huskers. 

Here is the LEGO video of the "Miracle at the Big House" play:

 

One of the most memorable moments from College Football. I can't wait for this season to start.
