No. 22 Notre Dame will be seeking to match its longest home winning streak in 15 years when it faces Michigan State on Saturday. 

Coach Brian Kelly put making the "House that Rockne Built" a difficult place to play again a priority after nearly a decade of mediocrity, and it appears to be working. The Irish have won nine straight at home, the longest such streak at the school since winning 10 straight under Bob Davie in 1997-98. 

Kelly made some subtle changes in how the team prepares for games, such as moving the pregame Mass from game morning to the day before and some other small changes to help the players focus more. 

Kelly believes the biggest change is the players have taken on a tenacious attitude at home.
