In what was a beautiful day at South Bend, Indiana, turned out to be a great day for every Irish fan. A convincing win against Michigan State gave the Irish their first of hopefully many wins of the season.
Notre Dame outplayed MSU from the start. With Cierre Wood’s 22 yard touchdown run with 20 minutes left in the first quarter, Notre Dame never looked back. A few fumbles gave Notre Dame problems, but they recovered well and didn’t let it come back to bite them later.
Overall, this was a game ND needed. An 0-3 start would have been dreadful for the Irish, but now they are 1-2. Brian Kelly’s team did what they wanted and needed to do, win. Not only did they do that, they won big. Here’s the statistics from the game.
