First quarter update: Rees, Eifert propel Irish to 7-0 lead

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
All-America tight end Tyler Eifert has been the forgotten man in the Notre Dame offense for much of this season.

But Tommy Rees remembers him.

Rees, starting at quarterback for Everett Golson (concussion), completed four passes to Eifert for 73 yards, including a 4-yard touchdown pass with 1:30 to go in the first quarter as the Irish took a 7-0 lead into the second quarter. Rees is 6-of-7 for 86 yards.

Rees hit Eifert on a 33-yard pass on the Irish's opening drive, but the drive ended in a missed 40-yard field-goal attempt by Kyle Brindza. BYU moved the ball very well on its opening drive, but a 16-yard sack by Stephon Tuitt was followed by Manti Te'o's fourth interception of the season (the ND record for linebackers is five).
