A Michigan State fan interrupted CBS Sports reporter Allie LaForce during a live broadcast on Saturday to, well, propose marriage. LaForce was reporting on that afternoon’s Michigan State-Duke game when the man tapped her arm, got down on one knee and pretended to offer a ring.

“I’m sorry, yes can I help—,” she says as he kneels, followed by a quick “Okey dokey! I believe we’re getting a proposal here.”

LaForce, who is married, laughed it off and asked her on-air team about their thoughts. One replied: “I think we should call your husband.”

The proposal didn’t quite work out. And hours later, his team was eliminated from the Big Dance.
