Week 4 helmet stickers
By Matt Fortuna
These three stood out in Notre Dame's 17-13 win Saturday over Michigan State.
Corey Robinson, WR: The freshman was the best receiver on the field Saturday, tallying a game-high 54 yards on three catches and drawing a pass interference call in the fourth quarter. The 6-foot-4.5 Robinson should eventually turn into a nightmare for corners to cover.
Kyle Brindza, K/P: It's not every day you see a kicker and/or punter receive a game ball. Even less so when said kicker and punter 1. misses a field goal, and 2. has a punt blocked. All of that happened for Brindza, who was sick all week but hit a 41-yard field goal and averaged 42.8 yards on four punts.
Matthias Farley, S: Farley did not start on Saturday but came up with the game's lone turnover, picking off an ill-advised halfback pass from MSU's R.J. Shelton in the third quarter. Notre Dame converted that pick into a decisive touchdown in a four-point win.
