Welcome back Everett Golson as the Irish beat up Rice in opener

Everett Golson put on a show in his first outing in over a year and a half throwing for 295 passing yards with 2 TDs. but that was not his whole day.  Golson also added 3 rushing TDs against a Rice team from Houston, TX.  Despite 5 Notre Dame players out due to an ongoing investigation on academic fraud, the rest of the team played with a focus and determination not to allow their absence or the presence of Rice to deter them from their goal.

Golson leading his team to a 48-17 win certainly makes him a NCAA Football Zone Beastmode performer of the week candidate.
