SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Brigham Young knew it could be facing two Notre Dame quarterbacks on Saturday. Now it could be three.
Fighting Irish coach Brian Kelly announced Thursday he wouldn't decide on a starter for the fifth-ranked Irish (6-0) until game time Saturday because he wants to see how starter Everett Golson responds after being cleared to play after sustaining a concussion.
The Irish have been using Golson as a starter and backup Tommy Rees as the closer with great success. But Kelly says if Golson isn't ready to go he might start junior Andrew Hendrix against Brigham Young (4-3). Kelly says Hendrix had a good week of practice.
BYU has the nation's fifth-rated defense, but is coming off its worst performance of the year against No. 8 Oregon State.
