Golson collects weekly honor

Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson was named the Independent offensive player of the week Monday. It is the fourth time the sophomore has won the award.

Golson set career highs in passing yards (346) and touchdowns (three) in the No. 1 Irish's 38-0 home win over Wake Forest.

Golson completed 20 of 30 passes with one interception, and he matched his career-long completion with a 50-yard touchdown pass to former Bishop Dwenger standout John Goodman.
