It was a Full House for the Big Game at Buffalo Wild Wings on Wilder Road, Bay City. The wings were hot but the struggle between MSU and U of M was even HOTTER.
Hundreds gathered for the University of Michigan vs. Michigan State game at 3:30 on Saturday afternoon at Buffalo Wild Wings (BWW) Grill and Sports Bar located across from the Bay City Mall.
General Manager of BWW, Brad Lowe, said, "People started piling in at about 2:00 which led to a full house by 3:30 game time." Lowe continued, "We actually had to start turning people away."
According to Lowe, BWW has 36 TV's plus 7 big screens that includes 4 high-definition TVs.
It was an emotional afternoon for fans of the MSU Spartans. Likewise, the Maize and Blue cheering corps at BWW also suffered highs and lows during the game.
In the end, Michigan's Mario Manningham caught a Chad Henne pass with about two minutes remaining to give the Wolverines a come-back 28-24 win over the valiant Spartans of Michigan State.
Michigan led early. Michigan State led with just a few minutes remaining. But in the end, the Spartans let one get away as Quarterback Henne found Manningham for the winning score.
