Behind the Irish: A look at Michigan State-Notre Dame

Ahead of their big matchup with Michigan State, the Notre Dame football team talks about what goes into preparing for such an big game early in the season.

The return of the Notre Dame-Michigan State rivalry brought the Megaphone Trophy back into play for the first time since 2013. And the 36-28 loss has put Notre Dame in a tough place, their year-end goals adjusted with their playoff hopes running away from them like LJ Scott on Saturday night.

But before we turn the page to Duke (more on that later), NBC took an inside look at the rivalry, what it means to both teams, and some of the big moments in the long-running rivalry.

The Megaphone is back in East Lansing for the first time since 2010. And Mark Dantonio got his first win against Brian Kelly since Little Giants.
