Gold Stars | by Pat

Brady Quinn and Terrail Lambert were honored this week with a number of weekly awards for their roles in one of the most thrilling comebacks in recent ND history.

Quinn was named the National Offensive Player of the Week by the Walter Camp Football Foundation for his 5-touchdown, 316-yard performance. Meanwhile, Terrail Lambert was named the Nagurski Defensive Player Of The Week by the Football Writers Association of American and also won the National Defensive Player of the Week by the Master Coaches Survey.

Also of note...

• For those who want to rewatch the game, it will be airing tonight on ESPN Classic at 9pm (EDT).

• The Don Criqui radio call of Lambert's late game heroics can be found on, as well as highlight clips and full-game audio from all of the Irish games this year. It's great to see Westwood One set up such a helpful and useful site.

• Of special interest to Irish fans should be the Station Finder on Westwood One, which lists out which radio stations in which states carry the Irish games. The link has been added to the BGS sidebar on the right for handy reference.
