2014 Notre Dame host Rice

Irish cruise to victory over Rice…

SOUTH BEND, IN — HE’S BACK….. Senior Everett Golson made his presence felt early and often in the season opener against Rice. He rushed for three touchdowns and threw for two more as the Fighting Irish cruised to a 48-17.

Golson missed all of 2013 because of a suspension for showing, as he put it, “poor academic judgment.” He hadn’t played since the loss to Alabama in the BCS title game at the end of the 2012 season.

He didn’t show any rust in his return. Golson passed for 295 yards and rushed for 41 more.

“I felt pretty comfortable from the get-go,” Golson said. “I don’t know if it necessarily showed the first couple of drives, but that’s one of those things where you just have to stay at it and keep being persistent in it.

“I think we did a great job of doing that, and it came out pretty good for us.”

The Irish finished the contest with 576 yards of offense.

“Golson was electric,” coach Brian Kelly said. “He kept his eyes downfield, knew when to run, knew when to throw it, and those are things we really talked about. We didn’t want to over‑coach him in that we were going to allow him to get outside the pocket and be a football player and just naturally go play the game. And I thought he did that extraordinarily well.

Based on all of the bad press over the last week, due to academic scandal and five players, including three starters, are being held out of practices and games while the school looks into suspected academic dishonesty, this certainly is a positive sign for a program moving forward.

Next week, the Irish face a huge game and rival – Michigan, as the Wolverines stomped no Appalachian State 52-14

BIG TEN Week 3 recap

Stunning weekend in the Big Ten…

September 15, 2013

The Boilermakers came to play taking an early lead of 10-3 at the half against the Irish but couldn’t stop the visitors from scoring in the fourth quarter. The Irish scored 21 points in the fourth quarter which proved to be enough to steal a victory 31-24 on Saturday night.

Notre Dame receiver DaVaris Daniels staggered Purdue with two late touchdowns. Three plays after his second score, teammate Bennett Jackson delivered the final blow — a 34-yard interception return for a score.

“I was never worried in the sense there was a panic,” Kelly said. “I felt really confident that we were going to win the football game. We just needed to settle down a little bit.”

One the winningest program in college football might have just had its worst win.

Fitzgerald Toussaint scored a go-ahead, 2-yard touchdown with 2:49 left and Michigan made a desperately needed stop on the final play to hold on for a 28-24 victory over Akron on Saturday.

It’s something about Michigan (3-0) and the Mid-American Conference, where they seem to have a few problems as they did with Appalachian State and Toledo.

The Bruins came back from 18 points down behind the fine play of QB Brett Hundley, who threw three touchdown passes and stunned Nebraska 41-21 in front of a record crowd of 91,471 on Saturday.

The win for UCLA came six days after receiver Nick Pasquale was killed when he was struck by a vehicle while he was walking in his hometown and a day before coaches and teammates travel to San Clemente, Calif., for his memorial service.
