Tommy Rees’ uneven play was on full display in Notre Dame’s latest victory at Pittsburgh. The sophomore quarterback had two more turnovers in the first half — a fumble and an interception — and then was a perfect 8-for-8 passing in a game-winning drive.
Coach Brian Kelly said there’s no talk whatsoever about getting other quarterbacks into the games — whether for mop-up duty or for a change of pace. The Irish have evened their record at 2-2 headed into this Saturday’s game at Purdue.
“Tommy is 6-1 as a starter. You know, he’s led two very huge drives for us late in the game against Michigan and of course against Pittsburgh,” Kelly said Sunday.
“He’s obviously not a finished product; nobody is. He’ll continue to get better and better.”
