SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Tommy Rees threw for 235 yards and a touchdown, Cam McDaniel rushed for a career-high 117 yards and Notre Dame bounced back from a disappointing loss to beat BYU 23-13 on Saturday.

Rees got the Fighting Irish (8-3) going with a 61-yard touchdown pass to DaVaris Daniels on Notre Dame’s first possession, then set up a 2-yard TD run by Tarean Folston with a 30-yard pass to TJ Jones. Kyle Brindza kicked a 51-yard field goal and a pair of 26-yard field goals for the Irish.

BYU (7-4), which got a 7-yard TD pass from Taysom Hill to JD Falslev in the first quarter, closed to 20-13 when Justin Sorensen kicked a 27-yard field goal with 39 seconds left in the third quarter, but couldn’t get any closer.

Hill passed for 168 yards and he and Paul Lasike each rushed for 101 yards for BYU.
