Michigan State Vs. Notre Dame: Third Quarter Ends With Spartans Trailing

Three quarters have been played in East Lansing, and the Spartans will have some work to do in the fourth if they want to remain in the top ten.

Michigan State started the second half with the ball, but they'd immediately go three and out. Notre Dame and the Spartans would take turns punting the ball back and forth, with neither team doing much on offense through the early portion of the third.

MSU would start to establish some possession, going on a seven play drive before putting the ball on the ground. The Irish would recover, and they'd run off eight plays of their own before punting it back to the Spartans.

Michigan State has the ball as the fourth quarter gets underway, and they'll need to get going if they want to beat the Irish. Notre Dame could be looking at a big jump in the rankings if they hold on for the victory.
