September 23, 2006: Notre Dame caps an incredible rally on Terrail Lambert's interception return for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter to win 40-37 at Michigan State.

The Irish face deficits of 17-0 in the first quarter, 31-14 at halftime and 37-21 after the third.

Brady Quinn's 43-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Samardzija midway through the fourth quarter cut the Spartans' lead to 37-27.

On Michigan State's next possession, quarterback Drew Stanton lost a fumble at the Spartans' 24-yard line. Notre Dame capitalized as Quinn hit Rhema McKnight for a 14-yard touchdown pass to make it 37-33.

Michigan State proceeded to commit another turnover as Lambert intercepted a pass from Stanton and ran it back 23 yards for what proved to be winning score.
