On third down, Notre Dame QB was first-rate

Each time they got in trouble, each time Notre Dame seemed on the brink of giving up the ball to a vastly inferior Boston College team, the Irish made it happen. They converted on third down. Or, rather, Everett Golson converted on third down.

Notre Dame went 10 for 10 on third-down conversions to start the game, a devastating statistic for the BC defense. The offense simply wouldn’t let them on the field, resulting in long, draining drives, spurred on by Golson, as fourth-ranked Notre Dame beat BC, 21-6, at Alumni Stadium.
