Notre Dame Drops Michigan State

(AP) Cierre Wood ran for two touchdowns, freshman George Atkinson III returned a kickoff 89 yards for a score and Robert Blanton had a late interception Saturday as Notre Dame beat No. 15 Michigan State 31-13 for its first win. The Spartans (2-1), who stunned Notre Dame in overtime a year ago with a game-winning TD pass off a fake field goal, tried to surprise the Irish again after lining up for a field goal near the end of the first half. Notre Dame (1-2) was ready this time. Michigan State’s Kirk Cousins, who had 11 straight completions at one juncture of the second half, was 34-for-53 for 329 yards.

Penn State at Temple - Football Highlights

(AP) Michael Zordich scored on a 1-yard run with 2:42 left to stretch Penn State’s winning streak against Temple to 29 straight games in a 14-10 victory on Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field. The Owls led for most of the game and gave their intrastate rival one of the biggest scares in this series. For all the strides Temple has made in its program the last five years, it still can’t beat Joe Paterno and the Nittany Lions. Temple has not defeated Penn State since a 14-0 victory on Oct. 18, 1941. The teams tied 7-7 in 1950. After missing two field goal attempts, Penn State converted a fourth-and-1 on the 3 late in the fourth. Check out the box score and see our Big Ten scoreboard.
