Well, here one f the lower scoring games I’ve seen today. Notre Dame won a close one against Michigan State. Here’s how special it is:

Another home victory Saturday was Notre Dame’s 10th straight, matching a streak not seen since one of the same length ended in 1999.

But, it was pretty, pretty, pretty messy:

Notre Dame survived with a 17-13 victory over Michigan State, ekeing out a win despite a parade of self-inflicted wounds but thanks in very large part to ill-timed errors of the Spartans and at least one questionable call from the officials.

Yeesh. Well, it could’ve been worse. You could’ve lost. Being able to win despite a bad performance is a good sign. Ultimately, you want to play well every game but that doesn’t always happen. Check out the link to the story to get a very detailed look at how messy the game was. All in all, it was a close game but close games don’t always mean high quality games.
