Report: Rees to start at QB for Irish on Saturday
Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Tommy Rees will reportedly start at quarterback for Notre Dame on Saturday against BYU after Everett Golson suffered a concussion last week.
Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly had indicated earlier this week that his starter would be a game-time decision, and the Chicago Tribune on Saturday has reported that it will be Rees.
Rees came in last week when Golson took a hard shot in the fourth quarter against Stanford and led the Irish to the tying field goal before guiding the team to the winning touchdown in a 20-13 victory.
Golson returned to practice on Wednesday, but Rees reportedly took the majority of snaps with the first-team offense during the week.
