Explain This -- ND Stuns MSU

How do you explain this? How do you explain Notre Dame’s improbable rally from the brink of a humiliating loss?

You don’t. You see the Irish rally from a series of 17-point deficits, get five touchdown passes from Brady Quinn, an interception return for a TD from Terrail Lambert and somehow survive Michigan State Saturday night, 40-37.

It has to rank as one of the biggest comebacks in school history and it just might turn the season around.

It also might be the beginning of the end for Spartan coach John L. Smith, but that’s a debate for another day.

For now, know this -- Notre Dame (3-1) just might have a magical season after all.
