Notre Dame ranked 7th after beating Miami


A big win for Notre Dame against Miami this weekend has paid off big time in the polls.  The Irish are ranked 7th in the Associated Press and coaches polls.

Notre Dame is 5-0.  The run game came to life, Everett Golson matured and the defense continued it's dominance.

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.
