Irish beat Michigan State to go 3-1

Posted:

The Irish went up against Michigan State Saturday at home.  Notre Dame beat the Spartans 17-13.

Before the game fans told FOX28's Melanie Yuill they were confident this would be the outcome of the game despite the previous loss at Michigan and close call at Purdue.

Irish fans say they'll always support their team no matter what.  But this team is different from the undefeated Irish of a year ago.  Anthony Rieff/Notre Dame Fan Anthony Rieff said,  "I don't feel like we're as good as last year. "  Notre Dame Student Patrick Feeney said, "I wish we were still undefeated right now."

Going into their fourth game the Irish already had one loss against Michigan and struggled to beat Purdue.  Those facts have some ND fans a little nervous about this season.  "I'm worried.  I'm kinda worried.  It's been a rough go compared to last year," said Notre Dame Alum Jean Hanegan. But the negative feelings about the Irish are fleeting.  Hanegan said, "I have faith they can turn it around and that we can have a strong year again this year."

Fans of the blue and gold say there's good reason for the shaky start.  Notre Dame Alum Stephen Audretch said, "losses happen, Michigan looked really good against us."  Feeney said, "It happens to a lot of teams in the Nation.  Alabama last week barely beat Texas A and M.  I mean it happens to everybody."  And Hanegan said, "Last year Purdue was really close too and Michigan's got a really great team as much as I hate to say it."

Fans know there's some hurdles but they still have a lot of confidence in the team moving forward.  "I'm looking forward to the defense kinda finding their identity.  They'll get there over the season," said Audretch, "the rest of the season we're gonna do really well.  We're gonna beat expectations."  Hanegan said, "Definitely a few more tough games.  I think Oklahoma's gonna be really rough and I'm worried about Stanford but I'm thinking maybe 10-2"
