Notre Dame Football: Brian Kelly Comfortable With Two Quarterbacks

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish used two quarterbacks in their 13-6 defeat of the Michigan Wolverines, and head coach Brian Kelly said on Sunday that he's comfortable using that system going forward, via UND.com:

"You know, I've made this pretty clear every time that this has been brought up: You want to go with one quarterback, but we have a freshman quarterback who's experiencing being a young quarterback. The only time I can prop him up with a veteran to win a football game because we're in this to win it, then we'll do that.

"Characterize it any way you want, that it's two quarterbacks. I look at it as supporting Everett with Tommy, and if we need to do that, we'll continue to go that way because it's been pretty successful."

On Saturday, Tommy Rees completed eight of 11 passes for 115 yards. Everett Golson, meanwhile, completed three of eight passes for 30 yards and two interceptions. The Fighting Irish gained only 239 yards in total offense, but leaned on their defense, which forced six Michigan turnovers.
