Notre Dame clears Golson to return to practice

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Everett Golson has been cleared to return to practice, Notre Dame announced Wednesday, paving the way for the sophomore quarterback to start Saturday's game against BYU.

Golson suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter of Notre Dame's 20-13 win over Stanford and was not cleared as of Tuesday. Coach Brian Kelly said yesterday Golson had passed all the necessary tests except for a cognitive exam on a computer, and has expected Golson to play vs. BYU since revealing his quarterback's concussion Sunday.

Golson threw for 141 yards and a touchdown against Stanford, although he fumbled three times. On the season, Golson has thrown for 968 yards with four touchdowns and three interceptions.

Preseason Preps Basketball Power Rankings: No. 4 Bogan

Preseason Preps Basketball Power Rankings: No. 4 Bogan

Bogan

2017-18 record: 21-9, 6-3 in Public League Red-South/Central

Postseason results: Lost to Class 3A sectional finals to Morgan Park

Players to watch: The Bengals have one of the deepest rosters in the state this season. Seniors Jordan Booker and Jeremiah Washington are both proven performers in the backcourt while senior big man Rashuan Agee is a double-double threat coming off of a solid summer.

Why they're in the power rankings: Although Bogan doesn't have the Division I star power of other Public League powerhouses, they make it for it with grit and toughness. The Bengals are never phased to play programs like Simeon and Morgan Park. But this season, they have the talent to be the best team in the area if they put it all together. 

Did you know? Bogan has won five consecutive regional titles, but they've only won one sectional during that span. This season, the Bengals have high hopes that they'll be able to make a run to Peoria.
