(heart beat) ? (water splashing) (rain drops) (engine revving) (tires on wet road) ? >> mike: if you're a fan of the spartans, you're thinking december 5th would be nice. when they had a big ten championship over iowa. 22-play, 9-minute drive. they don't need all that. they need to keep the clock and
that guy, l.j. scott. and scott has about four yards, on first down. isaac rochell the tackle. 5:44 on that clock. >> doug: we talked about in commercial break. a fullback in the flat. make it look like the same play you just ran. looks like it's going up and release that fullback and make a nice safe pass play out of it. >> mike: the spartans bring in terry in at quarterback. they will send tyler o'connor out to a receiver spot. terry, more of a runner. and he will do the designed run here. 5:07 to go. it's about to get loud. >> doug: there's no deception here. you see number 6 in the ball game. it's a run.
the backside. puts a tough third down situation now. so much more difficult, to throw the ball, and convert on third and five, than a second down, play-action. >> mike: to get to the o'connor throws. no. notre dame will get the ball back. >> doug: a defense that could not get off the field, in the entire second and third quarter, all of a sudden, with back-t back-to-backstops. >> mike: michigan state went into protect made. and sometimes it's hard to put that new disc back in and re-ignite. and they can't find it now.
playing softer. tyler got his confidence rolling. >> mike: hartbarger is now with space. he just did. from the 23. sanders. hemmed in. and brought down, right around the 30 yard line. 4:18 to go. kizer coming out on the field. let's look at the last drive, doug. >> doug: when they needed it, kizer was pump faking. wanted it down the 50/50 down the field. the key to this drive, is offensive line play. kizer was not this clean, early in the game. he was getting hit on every throw. now, he is standing cleanly. throwing the ball. delivering. and the offensive line has picked up their game. kizer, with a double-move to the tight end. stick nod down the middle of the field, threw a touchdown to his big tight end. >> mike: irish, down 29 tonight.
the cotton bowl against houston. can the irish get back to force overtime here? kizer, trying to throw it underneath. and too hard behind, as his intended receiver, c.j. sanders, was blanketed. >> doug: it's a four-man rush, to allow kizer to deliver the ball. there, he went through progression and got hit as he threw. but in general, a much better execution by the offsi >> mike: folston is the back for this key drive, he helped try to block malik mcdowell. and that pass is complete. caught by equanimeous st. brown. fourth catch of the night for st. brown. >> doug: kizer stood tall on the back foot and delivered. third down converses, look for a kizer run. >> mike: so often, that first first down of the drive, the
trying to take off. can't get away. brought down. williams, the redshirt freshman from chicago. biggest defensive play so far. forty and seven. 3:37 to go. going to take time-out here to make the decision. >> doug: there wasn't a lot there. i was looking downfield for a route. looked if kizer thought to talk off, he might have had a crease. but things closed up quickly. the coverage today looked solid. right off the line, maybe c.j. sanders has it quick. other than that, it was good conch on that play. >> mike: the spartan before the snap. chris frye went back to the middle of the field safety. they did a good job of keeping everything covered.
time-outs left. 3:37. do you trust your defense enough to punt it away and hope you get the ball back? that's what ryan kelly is going to do, knowing a couple of first downs and you don't get back on the field. >> doug: if i'm kizer, i'm lobbying to go for it. i'm feeling good right now. we've been moving the football. an i don't trust anybody's defense anyway. >> mike: said by a quarterback. tyler newsome will come on to kick it away. great kick. newsome does his job to make it a lock field, with 3:30 remaining. >> doug: i'm not saying it's the best percentage move. but offensively, michigan state has gone a little conservative. and tyler o'connor, a couple of series ago, on the rollout.
and got a tack. on the last drive, he might the able to stick that completion in for the first down. but a defensive back was breaking on the ball. he threw it low and away and played it safe. he played it a little too safe the last couple possessions and they end up three and out. >> mike: scott will be the running back for this drive. 3:30 left. notre dame two time-outs. >> doug: three offensive linemen to the left side. >> mike: starting to look that way. gain a yard of two. second down, coming up. >> doug: you feel the kickout
tighter. and bunching people up. it's not gashing for seven or eight. it's a push for two or three. >> mike: that is difference. and the defense was on the ropes a lot. basing the third quarter onslaught, as michigan state scored 31. second and eight, leading all the play clock. and scott has to get to the outside. can he get there? no. a good job on the edge. and avery sebastian, who did notre dame uses its second time-out, with 2:36 to go in regulations. >> doug: what a job by onwualu. he closes this down. he is coming from the left side of the screen. takes a shoulder and keeps it tight inside. when scott tries to bounce it, he still has leverage and comes out, makes a play. great job on taking on a fullback block. and then, what bill belichick would say, setting the edge to turn it up. scott tried to bounce it.
>> mike: he was a wide receiver. bounced around and found his way on this side of the ball with a capta captain. >> doug: when that's happening, you're not expecting a guy that is going to become a captain of your football team. and he's been starter. and there, a huge play on second down. creating another third down opportunity. >> mike: he said i wanted to be the hammer, not the nail. he moved over to defense. and now, they find a way to make a play here. or it may be a case for the irish, in terms of the comeback. third and seven. the spartans need to get to the
will fire. wide-open at the 35 yard line for the first down. donnie corley jr. huge first down gain of 28 for michigan state. >> doug: cole luke is playing the top third of the field. he gets his eyes inside. and looking up the seam route. and all of a sudden, leaves his man. and the ball thrown outside. >> mike: those are the basics that hurt him in the game at texas. basic coverage busts. 2:04. michigan state close to closing this out. and kelly will use the final time-out he has. and maybe a couple of seconds back on the clock.
brian kelly, disbelief in what happened in his secondary. v van grodin's defense in coverage. >> doug: it wouldn't have been thrown if he were sitting in it a at third. he was trying to make a play by eyeing a guy coming up the seam. thki break on a ball, and started drifting, left his responsibility. big conversion for michigan state. >> mike: 1:57 left, out of time-outs. you're almost in a scenario where the best michigan state runs the ball twice, the best you can do is probably get the ball back with a half minute
notre dame will play duke here. the bigger picture of this comeback that might fall a drive start, as kelly tries to get the answers from his defensive coordinator. notre dame is going to lose two of the first three. and you can recover from an early loss to get back in the playoff picture. you can recover from early loss, especially when you're in a conference. the stated goal of being part of a college football playoffs, like the spartans were last year, is slipping out of the gr unless they can make something special happen. second and five for msu. holmes is stopped. spartans snap it with 1:10 left for third down. the spartans next week, play wisconsin.
to indiana, to maryland, to illinois. they get the wolverines and the buckeyes coming to their place. wisconsin is ranked number nine. but they had one with georgia state earlier today. >> doug: iowa wasn't too happy, talking big ten. >> mike: losing to north carolina state, the bison. spartans get this one, they close it out. r.j. shelton on the edge. stea down to the 25 yard line. and the spartans go back winners here tonight. >> doug: this has been the play that's killed notre dame all night long. shelton, running tough. holding the offensive line. getting on the corner. big guys on little guys. getting outside. broken tackle. once he got to the secondary, i'm thinking, let him score.
defensively. he can take that all the way to the end zone and be down two scores. >> mike: i'm thinking that shelton can go down there. and michigan state will come in here, 500 total yards of offense. they lose one here on the kneeldown. how about tyler o'connor. you have started two -- get that ball back, tyler. absolutely. i hope they give it to you because your two road starts at number two ohio state, as an ohio native. and you won as a kid who came here to south bend and you're one game played at notre dame stadium, the second road start, you get a win, as well. nice story to tell for a fifth year senior. >> doug: phenomenal effort. phenomenal effort. ran with the ball. key completions. even towards the end of the game, he was conservative with the ball towards the end of the game. but it played out. he knew what kind of defense he has. he knew he could run the football at times.
offense. >> mike: he rubs a balanced offense tonight. >> kathryn: you let off a sigh of relief. describe what it is like coaching tonight. >> it was tight. great comeback by notre dame. i thought our guys played really well. but you know, filed it away at the end. a great run by r.j. shelton gets it in the bank. at interesting there at the end of the game. how did you manage to hold them off? >> deshone kizer, he started to hit his plays. went downfield a little bit. has great poise. you saw them do that against texas, as well. got a great football team. you know, they're never going to be out of the football game. that's the way it is. they did a great job coming back. >> kathryn: what does the win mean for the season? >> a big win. has v to get ready for wisconsin next week.
tonight. 36-28, our final score in south bend. brian kelly's press conference, available for you, nbcsports.com. coming up next, except on the west coast, your local news. packers/vikings on sunday night. and the irish next saturday, take on duke. nbcsn, the notre dame postgame show, with doug flutie, kathryn tappen, tirico, good night from south bend. thanks for watching notre dame football, penaltied by verizon. afoot and light-hearted i take to the open road.
