Kelly says Golson "100 percent," will start vs. Oklahoma

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said Tuesday that redshirt freshman quarterback Everett Golson passed his cardio test on Monday with no trouble. That was the final hurdle to clear for Golson to return to action after suffering a concussion in the fourth quarter against Stanford and sitting out the BYU game.

Kelly said Golson "feels great" and is "100 percent."

"I know this: He's excited about playing at Oklahoma," Kelly said. "And we expect him to do well."

The athletic Golson, of course, presents significantly different challenges to a defense than does pocket passer Tommy Rees. Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops is bracing for those challenges.

"He's a guy that, it's been said a lot and it's true, when there isn't anything there he has a knack for breaking tackle or making somebody miss him and runs around so he can buy extra time and scramble and wait for someone to work open or take off and run it himself," Stoops said. "He's got excellent feet that way."
