National roundup: Irish defense rattles Sooners

Georgia gets best of No.3 Florida

Everett Golson threw for 177 yards and plunged in for the decisive 1-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, Manti Te'o bolstered his Heisman Trophy candidacy with a late interception, and No. 5 Notre Dame beat No. 8 Oklahoma, 30-13, Saturday night in Norman, Okla..

Te'o, the standout linebacker who has a penchant for causing turnovers, dived when Landry Jones’s pass ricocheted off of Jalen Saunders and got his gloved hands under it. Kyle Brindza tacked on his third field goal soon after, and Theo Riddick added a late touchdown run as the Fighting Irish (8-0) put it away with 20 fourth-quarter points.
