The first quarter of Saturday's matchup between No. 20 Notre Dame and No. 10 Michigan State is in the books, and the Irish are leading 7-0.

Everett Golson would hit John Goodman for the 36-yard score. The Spartans would be flagged for pass interference on the play, but Notre Dame would take the result of the play and the seven point lead. Here's the score in gif form:
The Spartans would show signs of life on their next possession, driving 49 yards in ten plays before missing a 44-yard field goal attempt.
As the second quarter gets underway, the Spartans have the ball at their own 27-yard line.
