Two weeks ago in Ann Arbor, Michigan State miraculously defeated Michigan on a blocked punt returned for a touchdown as time expired. Jalen Watts-Jackson, the Michigan State hero who suffered a season-ending hip injury on the same play, will forever be known by Wolverines fans as that rat who snuffed out Michigan's playoff chances.

Or that chipmunk.

Lansing taxidermist Nick Saade has immortalized the play with a masterpiece made of chipmunks:


Taxidermy is weird. This is weird. At the same time, it is awesome. The chipmunks are wearing little helmets, so no one has to look into their eyes.

Well, unless you want an up-close view of the touchdown lunge.


If only Saade could have used real Spartans and Wolverines.
