Notre Dame’s offense was supposed to be shorthanded against Navy in the season opener, but looked anything but.
Even without suspended running back Cierre Wood, the Irish rolled over the Midshipmen 50-10 Saturday in Dublin, Ireland.
The Irish offense amassed 490 total yards, including 293 on the ground and surprisingly controlled the clock (33:37-26:23) against a ball-control Navy team.
First-time starting quarterback Everett Golson led the Irish offense to three first-half touchdown drives the first three times it touched the ball and for all practical purposes it was game over.
