The Michigan State Spartans dominated Notre Dame for three quarters, and no single play showcased that more than Gerald Holmes’ 73-yard touchdown run.
With MSU already up 29-7 in the final minutes of the third quarter, Holmes took a handoff and patiently read his blocks before bursting up field for a career-long run.
That gave the Spartans a commanding 36-7 lead, and it also showed Holmes is going to be a major factor in this backfield, even if L.J. Scott is the No. 1 guy. That one run accounted for more yards than Holmes totaled in 12 games last year.
