Notre Dame helmet stickers: Week 9
Everett Golson, QB: The redshirt freshman rose to the occasion on the biggest stage, completing 13 of 25 passes for 177 yards with -- most importantly -- no turnovers. He added 64 rushing yards and a touchdown, and his 50-yard strike to Chris Brown in the fourth quarter will be remembered for a long time if Notre Dame ends up having the kind of season many expect it to at this point.
Theo Riddick/Cierre Wood, RBs: The duo splits this again after each reached the end zone and helped the Irish outrush the Sooners, 215-15. Riddick carried it 19 times for 74 yards and Wood rush it seven times for the same number, with his 62-yard touchdown in the first quarter silencing the stadium and putting Notre Dame on top early.
Manti Te'o, LB: No tackles in the second-half for this alleged Heisman candidate. Pathetic. (Yes, folks, I'm joking.) The senior had all 11 of his stops in the first half and recorded two tackles for loss and his first sack of the season. He also added his fifth pick of the season, sealing the deal for the undefeated Irish.
