Aaron Bates threw the pass, Charlie Gantt made the catch, and at that moment, everything seemed to change for Michigan State.
The fake field goal two years ago that beat Notre Dame in overtime has taken on an almost mythical significance for Spartans fans. The victory over the Irish - which was followed by coach Mark Dantonio's health scare - was the beginning of a 22-5 stretch for Michigan State that is still going.
Fast forward to Saturday night, and 20th-ranked Notre Dame (2-0) returns to Spartan Stadium to face 10th-ranked Michigan State. This is the earliest in the season the Spartans (2-0) have been in the AP top 10 since 1979.
