NOTRE DAME FOOTBALL: Looking back at an eventful season

(Continued)

GOSHEN — Nov. 3, 2012

Notre Dame 29, Pittsburgh 26 (3OT)


The No. 4 Irish battle  true adversity for perhaps the first time all season as they move to 8-0 with a triple-overtime win over the Panthers at Notre Dame Stadium.

Notre Dame rallies from a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit to stay undefeated.

Golson — back in the game after being benched in favor of Rees earlier — scores the winning TD in the third overtime.

The contest is the fifth Notre Dame home game of the season — all wins, and all decided by a TD or less.

Notre Dame 21, Boston College 6


Golson runs for a TD and throws for two more to lead the No. 4 Irish over the Eagles and propel Notre Dame (10-0) to its best start since 1993.  

Golson completes 16 of 24 passes for 200 yards and a pair of TDs — a 7-yard strike to Troy Niklas in the first half and an 18-yard pass to Goodman in the second.

An Alabama loss earlier in the day — coupled with the Notre Dame victory — helps the Irish move up to No. 3 in both the polls and the BCS rankings.

Nov. 17, 2012

Notre Dame 38, Wake Forest 0

Notre Dame backs up Kelly’s No. 1 vote for his team and goes out and demolishes the ACC’s Demon Deacons to move to 11-0.

Golson completes 20-of-30 passes for 346 yards and a trio of TDs.

The Irish limit Wake Forest to just 209 total yards on 60 plays.

With a Kansas State loss later that night, the Irish are propelled into the top spot in both the polls and BCS rankings.

The victory sets up a pivotal showdown on the road at USC in the regular season finale the next week.

Notre Dame 22, USC 13


The Irish (12-0) put an exclamation point on their 2012 regular season, again getting a workmanlike effort from their defense to deny the unranked Trojans an upset in Los Angeles.

Riddick rushes for 146 yards and a TD and Kyle Brindza boots five field goals to spark the Irish to victory. Golson is 15-of-26 for 217 yards with no interceptions.

It’s a grind-it-out win of the variety the Irish have been churning out all season, as they methodically dispatch one opponent after another after starting the season unranked and with their relevancy questioned by some college football observers.

After defeating USC, the Irish have to wait one more week to know who they will face in the BCS Championship game in Miami, as Alabama and Georgia are slated to meet in the SEC Championship game the following week.

    Two decades after NASCAR started running at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the crowds have thinned considerably. It's probably no reflection on the sport's massive following, which stretches from coast to coast, but it surely doesn't NASCAR's image help when the cameras pan across all of those empty seats.
