Everett Golson looked better after a year off than he ever did in helping Notre Dame get to the national championship two seasons ago. In his first game back after missing last season for academic impropriety, Golson threw touchdown passes of 75 and 53 yards and became just the third Notre Dame quarterback to run for three touchdowns in a game as the Irish beat Rice 48-17 on Saturday. ''Everett Golson was electric,'' coach Brian Kelly said. He knew when to throw it.'' Golson was 14-of-22 passing for 295 yards and ran for 41 yards on 12 carries.

Blake Sims took a seat on the bench next to Jake Coker after leading Alabama to a score and the two chatted for a few minutes before it was time for the offense to go back on the field. Conversation was the only thing Sims and Coker shared at the Georgia Dome. The quarterback job, Sims had that all to himself. The fifth-year senior played well enough in his first career start to keep playing, getting plenty of help from Amari Cooper, T.J. Yeldon and Derrick Henry, and the second-ranked Crimson Tide held off West Virginia 33-23 on Saturday.

The NCAA has notified the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that it intends to appeal a judge's ruling in the Ed O'Bannon case that it violated antitrust laws. District Judge Claudia Wilken ruled Aug. 8 that the NCAA broke the law by restricting schools from providing money beyond current scholarship limits to athletes. A formal appeal has not yet been submitted, but NCAA chief legal officer Donald Remy issued a statement Thursday.
