Notre Dame Vs. Michigan State Final Score: Spartans Fall To Irish 20-3

The No. 10 Michigan State Spartans never got anything going offensively on Saturday night, and they lost to the No. 20 Notre Dame Fighting Irish by a score of 20-3. Notre Dame got on the scoreboard early, as Everett Golson hit John Goodman for the game's opening score.

Everett Golson would double the lead early in the second quarter, as he added a touchdown on the ground to the one he had thrown. Dan Conroy would kick a 50-yard field goal for the Spartans before the half, and the second quarter would end 14-3.

Neither team would do much in the third quarter, but the Irish would add a pair of field goals to push the lead to 17 in the fourth.

There weren't a lot of box score heroes on Saturday, but the Notre Dame defense was phenomenal. Manti Te'o had 12 tackles and a fumble recovery in the victory.

Michigan State will be hosting Eastern Michigan next Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET. The Fighting Irish will be back against a Michigan team, as they have a 7:30 p.m. ET date with the Wolverines on Sept 22.
