Notre Dame fans may wonder if Everett Golson, who showed poise in his first start, has what it takes to be the starting quarterback this season. That question might not matter so much if the Irish keep dominating both sides of the line the way they did against Navy. In Saturday's 50-10 blowout in Dublin, Ireland, the redshirt freshman from South Carolina exceeded modest expectations with a 12-for-18, 144-yard performance. The highlight: A short jump-ball TD toss to tight end Tyler Eifert in the second quarter. The lowlight: A foolish interception minutes later when he tested double coverage in hopes of hitting Eifert again near the goal line. Golson was more than good enough with Notre Dame running 46 times for 293 yards.
