Golson sharp in return as Notre Dame pounds Rice

South Bend, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - Everett Golson did not look the least bit rusty in his first collegiate game in 600 days.

Golson ran for three touchdowns and threw for two more as No. 17 Notre Dame handed Rice a 48-17 loss in the season opener at Notre Dame Stadium.

The last time Golson donned a Fighting Irish uniform was in the BCS title game against Alabama two seasons ago. He missed his entire sophomore campaign after the university suspended him the next fall for academic reasons and spent his hiatus practicing with a quarterback guru.

The early results were promising, as Golson completed 14-of-22 attempts for 295 yards while accounting for 41 of the Irish's 281 rushing yards.

Notre Dame (1-0), which is in the middle of another academic scandal, went 9-4 last season without Golson and was playing a Rice (0-1) program coming off a Conference USA title.

The Owls lost most of their offensive threats from last season, however, and the untested Driphus Jackson was shaky in his first road start under center. Hampered by conservative play calling, Jackson passed for 163 yards with a touchdown and an interception and gained a team-high 61 yards on the ground.
