Tommy Rees to start at QB for Notre Dame

With Everett Golson still recovering from a concussion, junior Tommy Rees will start at quarterback for Notre Dame on Saturday afternoon against BYU.

Compared to Golson's 58.5% accuracy, Rees has completed 68% of his passes with no interceptions in limited time this year. In his career, Rees has thrown for 4,195 yards, 33 touchdowns, and 22 interceptions.

In our Q&A with Notre Dame blog One Foot Down, we asked what changes with the Irish offense if Rees needs to play. Here was the answer:

"Rees is almost the opposite of Golson. He's the quintessential "underdog" - he's small, unathletic, and has a weak arm. What he brings to the table is a lot of experience. He knows the offense from top to bottom and can make the right call at the line. Kelly won't call any zone read or option plays with Rees in, but the offense doesn't change dramatically with him in."
