SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - The poised play of Everett Golson has Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly pleased with the quarterback's development heading toward a tough stretch of schedule.
The sophomore quarterback was 17 of 22 for 186 yards and ran for another 51 in a 41-3 victory against Miami on Saturday.
Those numbers won't set any records, but backed by Notre Dame's incredibly stingy defense, Golson doesn't need to. Kelly said Golson "grew up" before a sellout crowd at Chicago's Soldier Field.
His coming of age comes at just the right time, with 17th-ranked Stanford, BYU and 13th-ranked Oklahoma up next for the 5-0 Irish.
Kelly said Golson clearly benefited from having an off week before Miami.
By Thursday of last week, his knowledge of Miami's defensive schemes had become clear in practice, Kelly said.
