Notre Dame leads after three

Notre Dame is a quarter away from its first win of the season.

The Irish lead No. 15 Michigan State 28-10.

Notre Dame opened the second half by forcing a three-and-out by Michigan State and then scoring on a 71-yard drive.

After the Spartans finally started to stop the Irish running backs, Tommy Rees went to the air hitting Michael Floyd for a 22-yard pass than TJ Jones for a 26-yard scoring toss and a 28-10 lead with 9:30 left in the third quarter.

Jones was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct after the score for making a hand signal.

After Jones' TD neither team could really move the ball.

Michigan State gained only 52 yards in the third quarter, and Notre Dame added 82 more yards to its total.

The Irish only picked up 12 more yards after the touchdown.
