ND quarterback Everett Golson
It took Notre Dame only 52 seconds to get points on the board. The Irish started on their own 21-yard line. After a one yard carry, Notre Dame's quarterback, Everett Golson found C.J. Prosise wide open for a 78-yard touchdown.

The catch was Wilson's second career catch and his first career touchdown. Navy's drive took 6:08 off the clock.

Notre Dame started their next possession on the 35 yard line after Navy's kickoff went out of bounds. Three consecutive big plays moved the Irish down the field quickly.

Golson found Corey Robinson for a 19-yard completion. Tarean Folston for an 11-yard carry. Folston got the next carry and rumbled 26 yards to the Navy four yard line. Three plays later, Golson found Ben Koyack in the end zone for a Notre Dame touchdown. This Irish scoring drive took slightly longer than their first, lasting 3:07.
