Watch: Izzo, Winston talk Michigan State's big win over Notre Dame

No. 3 Michigan State has found its groove since falling to No. 1 Duke in its regular season opener. The Spartans have now won six straight games, with the latest coming against No. 5 Notre Dame and its high-scoring offense.

The Spartans built a 20-point lead at halftime behind some masterful shooting before fending off a second half Irish rally in a 81-63 victory in East Lansing, Michigan.
