Norman, OK -- Notre Dame is relevant once again.

Everett Golson ran for a go-ahead 1-yard touchdown with 5:05 left in the fifth-ranked Fighting Irish's 30-13 victory over No. 8 Oklahoma.

Heisman hopeful and Irish linebacker Manti Te'o, who had 11 tackles -- two for loss -- and a sack, intercepted a Landry Jones pass on Oklahoma's ensuing possession to set up a Notre Dame field goal and make it a two-possession game with 3:22 remaining.

The Irish are 8-0 for the first time since 2002.

Golson threw for 177 yards on 13-of-25 efficiency and added 64 yards rushing on 11 carries for the Irish (8-0), who have won 8-of-9 meetings all-time against the Sooners.

Golson sat last week against BYU after suffering a concussion the previous Saturday against Stanford. Tommy Rees started against the Cougars and helped the Irish to a 17-14 win.

Jones was 35-of-51 for 357 yards with an interception for the Sooners (5-2), who had their three-game winning streak snapped.

Jalen Saunders caught 15 balls for 181 yards in the setback.
