Irish defense prepares for Spartan quarterback Connor Cook
NOTRE DAME, Ind.-- After last week Michigan State officially decided who would lead their offense this season, and that guy is third-year sophomore Connor Cook.
"We still have the feeling, it's just got to come out, it's in there, it's just got to come out," Shembo said.
One way Kelly foresees his defense getting back on track is by succeeding in man-to-man coverage this weekend.
"We've got to win some one-on-one matchups, some that we haven't won so far that we need to win this weekend," Kelly said.
Kelly said although Cook will play a role in managing the game for Michigan State, what the Irish are most focused on this week is the Spartan defense--ranked number one in the nation--and its ability to control the football.
