SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said sophomore Everett Golson will start at quarterback in the opener Sept. 1 against Navy in Dublin.

Golson edged junior Andrew Hendrix for the position.

"After a lot of practice, lots of film, lots of evaluation, he won the job," Kelly said Thursday. "Andrew did a great job, made great improvements. I'm really pleased with the progress of both those young men. It was a tough decision. If things go the way we're planning it, he'll play the whole game."
