Notre Dame 17, Michigan State 13—FINAL

The Michigan State Spartans rolled into South Bend, Ind. to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the Battle for the Megaphone.  An important rivalry game for both teams, Notre Dame was looking to maintain some momentum after rebounding at Purdue following a tough loss to Michigan.  The Irish did just that.

In a game that lived up to its billing as a defensive struggle, each team had its chances to grab control of the game, but the result was in doubt down to the final minute.

Offensive inconsistency finally did the Spartans in as Notre Dame came up with some critical fourth quarter stops when it mattered most.
