Fourth Quarter: Everett Golson, NA
Fourth Quarter: Tommy Rees, B
Notre Dame's offense was on the field for only one possession in the fourth quarter. Tommy Rees came in and he was given one passing opportunity which he made into a 21-yard completion.
The rest were handoffs and Rees was held in check. Nonetheless, he didn't fumble a snap or handoff and Notre Dame scored another touchdown at the end.
Third Quarter Everett Golson, A+
To this point this game has been Everett Golson's best performance.
He wasn't asked to do much here, though, as the Irish needed to run the clock and keep the Hurricanes offense off the field. Still, Golson displayed his arm strength on some throws and his accuracy is much better than given credit.
Don't expect much in the fourth quarter, however, because Notre Dame leads 34-3.
Second Quarter: Everett Golson, A+
Everett Golson's overall decision-making this quarter was impressive.
Golson didn't turn the ball over and led Notre Dame on a 14-play 65-yard drive to extend the lead, 13-3.
The drive took over seven minutes and that's exactly what Brian Kelly wants against Miami. Toward the end of the half, his three straight completion was even more impressive at getting the Irish another scoring opportunity.
1st Quarter: Tommy Rees, D
1st Quarter: Everett Golson, A+
Tommy Rees didn't last long and it was a good thing.
Although he didn't turn the ball over on Notre Dame's first possession, the Irish failed to move the ball.
So, Brian Kelly put in Everett Golson and everything quickly changed.
Golson led Notre Dame on a scoring drive that gave the Irish a 7-0 lead and they're not looking back. With Rees having gone 0-for-2 on his first possession, Golson's mobility has significantly paid off otherwise.
The 10-play 88-yard drive by Golson was impressive and he's been at the helm ever since.
