Saturday was Tommy Rees’ first start for Notre Dame as they faced Utah and the new QB did not disappoint. The Irish held the Utes to a meager three points while Rees threw three touchdown passes as Notre Dame finished 28-3.
Notre Dame has had a rough season and with a new quarterback taking Dayne Crist’s place, Brian Kelly is hoping for things to get better. The Fighting Irish face Utah for the first time Saturday and it won’t be easy for Notre Dame’s Tommy Rees’ first start.
Utah’s record might be intimidating for the struggling Irish, but Notre Dame’s chances of getting in a bowl aren’t shattered yet. If they can win two of the next three games, Notre Dame could make a bowl.
