SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Cam McDaniel scored on a 7-yard run following a questionable pass interference call, 1 of several penalties that hurt Michigan State, as Notre Dame beat the Spartans 17-13 Saturday for their 10th straight home win.

The Irish (3-1) also took advantage of another questionable pass interference in the first half that set up a 2-yard touchdown pass from Tommy Rees to TJ Jones and a holding penalty that kept alive a drive that led to a 41-yard field goal by Kyle Brindza. The Spartans (3-1) had 10 penalties for 115 yards by the Big Ten officials.

But Michigan State made some costly mistakes on its own, including a trick play after the Spartans appeared to be gaining momentum. After opening the second half with a field goal, receiver R.J. Shelton threw a pass that was intercepted by safety Matthias Farley and led to Notre Dame's go-ahead touchdown.
