It’s going to be one of the biggest non-conference matchups this weekend as the Notre Dame Fighting Irish look to get a huge road win against Michigan State.
Notre Dame took care of Boston College last Saturday as they won with a 49-20 score, as Michigan State had an early bye but knocked off Western Michigan 28-14 the week before.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Notre Dame enters this Week 4 matchup with two wins and one loss as their loss came against Georgia at home.
It was a tough one point loss as the team quickly forgot about that as they moved onto Boston College.
Between Boston College and Notre Dame, it seemed to be another close matchup or even a upset, but after a good locker room meeting at halftime, the Fighting Irish would score 42 points right out of the gate.
The Fighting Irish ran all over the Eagles as they totaled 515 rushing yards while averaging a 10.1 yards per carry.
At the end of the game, the Irish would have 611 yards of total offense.
Notre Dame did turn the ball over twice which has been an issue all season long thus far.
The Irish rank 5th in rushing in the nation, with being tied 31st scoring offense with 39 points per game.
Michigan State Spartans
Michigan State will look to continue their hot start as with a two week preparation for this battle, should be a piece of cake right? However the Spartans are still looking to repair the broken offense as it is barely getting the job down.
In each of State’s first two wins, they have relied on the defense to do much of the work as the offense would cruise down the field somehow in someway.
Against the Western Michigan Broncos, the defense held them to 195 yards of offense and only 27 minutes of play.
In correlation led to over 450 total yards for the Spartans and 21 first downs. The Spartans also lean to much on the possession of the field as they have yet to put a 85+ yard drive yet.
Either way, they are still one of the top teams and winning. If they want to take down the fighting Irish they must have a hot-start.
At the moment, the Spartans enter the game with over 255 rushing yards per game which is good for 16th in the nation. They also score an average of 31.5 points per game which is slightly lower than the Irish.

The Spartans had over two weeks to prepare for this matchup as they should at least have the perfect game plan for the first two quarters, and change anything up near the end of the game.

This is a huge game for both schools, as it will stay close all the way until the final whistle. It will be a turnover costly game as I see Michigan State giving away one last gem to allow the Fighting Irish to pull it off.
