In serious jeopardy of starting the season 0-3, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish welcome the 15th-ranked Michigan State Spartans to South Bend on Saturday.

The Spartans made quick work of Florida Atlantic last week, crushing the overmatched Owls, 44-0. A contender in the Big Ten Conference, Michigan State is now 2-0 on the young season, as it cruised past FCS foe Youngstown State to open the campaign by a 28-6 final.

As for Notre Dame, it appeared to be on its way to a victory over rival Michigan in the first-ever night game at the Big House last Saturday. Unfortunately for Brian Kelly and his Fighting Irish, they yielded a touchdown with two seconds remaining to remain winless on the year. Notre Dame lost its opener to South Florida at home and has gone from a ranked team to a club at risk of letting the season slip away in a very short span of time.

Location: Notre Dame Stadium, South Bend, Indiana
