Michigan State Photo and Video Galleries | by Pat

A few days delayed, but here you go. You can find plenty of great pictures of the game from the AP, the Detroit Free Press, the Detroit News, the Lansing State Journal, and Getty Images. Notre Dame has also started to add photos from gameday by the always excellent Matt Cashore. Check them out here and look for the photo of former Irish QB Jamie O'Hara. Then play Where's Waldo and try and find yourself in the 360 degree pep rally photo.

The South Bend Tribune for some reason doesn't have a photo gallery of the game. I can't really understand why, considering they took pictures at the game and interspersed them into the articles. Anyway, a close second for picture of the week is the one by Marcus Marter of Floyd putting his second foot inbounds after catching a touchdown pass from Clausen. This is the play where he broke his collarbone and the TD catch was deemed not a catch.

As for video, NBCSports once again has the game replay up. Click here for the 1st quarter, 2nd quarter, 3rd quarter, and 4th quarter. You can also find the halftime performance of the band and overall game highlights. Irish Illustrated also has some video on the field of the postgame celebration.

For the picture of the week, I was going to go with this one from the Lansing State Journal, but need to highlight the masterful work at MSPaint Like a Champion Today, which provided the same image from the perspective of the Spartan Band. Some may quibble if Tate's leap was a wise move, but there is no doubt this is a great image.
