Notre Dame's 0-2 start has brought plenty of criticism.
Coach Brian Kelly drew attention of his sideline demeanor.
The offense has had the fact that it struggles to hang onto the ball and gain first downs in short-yardage situations.
The defense was forced to relive last Saturday's fourth quarter when it gave up 28 points to Michigan in a 35-31 loss.
And every leader on the team has been asked the same question: Where does the team go from here?
For linebacker Manti Te'o the answer is simple.
"What's left is Michigan State," Te'o said during Wednesday's news conference. "We can't worry about anybody else. It's when you worry about other things that things start to fall about. All that matters is Michigan State, and they are coming in on Saturday. And they are the returning Big Ten champs (sharing the title with Ohio State and Wisconsin), and it's going to be a good game. It's going to be a good atmosphere. It's going to be good to be back home, but that's all that matters, Game 3."
