Golson found Brown in man coverage, Notre Dame picked up 50 yards and five plays later Golson scored to put the Fighting Irish back in front.

The pass to Brown wasn't one Golson could've hit early in the season, Golson said.

“I don't think six or seven weeks ago I could've done something like that,” Golson said. “I didn't really have the same feel for the guys then.”

Kelly expected his team would have to win with its defense early, but Saturday showed the Irish can also come up big on the other side.

“It's no surprise to me what he was able to do,” Notre Dame's best defensive player, linebacker, Manti Te'o, said. “I know exactly what No. 5 can do.”

Both players wear No. 5.

Afterward, the Fighting Irish (8-0) were already talking about next week's game against Pittsburgh, shrugging off questions about their place on the national stage.

“If we start listening to national championship and BCS talk, we will lose a football game,” Kelly said. “This is a pretty smart bunch.”
