EAST LANSING, Mich., Sept. 23 (UPI) -- No. 13 Notre Dame scored three touchdowns in the final 8:18 Saturday for a 40-37 victory over Michigan State.

Terrail Lambert scored the winning TD on a 27-yard interception return with 24 seconds left in the game.

Brady Quinn threw for 319 yards and five touchdowns against one interception for the Fighting Irish (3-1), who were behind 37-21 going into the final quarter.
