Notre Dame News
9-22-14: The Fighting Irish had a bye this week and they continue their road trip of neutral-site games, by visiting the New York City area to face the Syracuse Orange at Giants Stadium. Notre Dame last played in the region in December, knocking off Rutgers in the Pinstripe Bowl in the Bronx. Notre Dame has gotten stellar play from quarterback Everett Golson. He has thrown for 780 yards and seven touchdowns along with four rushing scores.
9-15-14: Notre Dame's 30-14 victory over the Purdue Boilermakers on Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis was not a cakewalk as many expected. Purdue hung around but Everett Golson made sure they weren’t going to win, completing 25 of 40 passes for 259 yards and two touchdowns while running for another score. The Irish defense did just enough to hold off the Boilermakers. Notre Dame has a bye this week.
9-9-14: The Fighting Irish could have played at half speed and they still would have beat Michigan this past Saturday. Notre Dame put a stamp on the end of its series with Michigan, posting its first shutout victory of the 41-game series 31-0. Despite being outgained 289-280, the Irish used four Wolverines turnovers to propel the victory. QB Everett Golson threw three touchdowns, completing 23 of 34 passes for 226 yards. Notre Dame will match up with Purdue this weekend in Indianapolis.
9-4-14: Everett Golson made a memorable return to college football last Saturday with 336 yards of total offense and five overall touchdowns in Notre Dame's dominant 48-17 opening win over last year's Conference USA champions in the Rice Owls. If you recall, Golson sat out the entire 2013 season because of academic issues. If Golson can remain healthy and keep his grades up, the Irish could be in the hunt for a spot in the college football playoff come season’s end. Rice was not a good judgment of how good or bad Notre Dame is. Their game with Michigan this Saturday will provide a test for the Irish.
