Notre Dame head coach Marcus Freeman named Tyler Buchner as the team's starting quarterback ahead of the 2022 season.

The sophomore will be under center when the Fighting Irish face off with Ohio State on the road in their season opener.

Notre Dame lost its leading passer from a year ago when Jack Coan moved on to the NFL. Coan signed with the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free agent.

That left Buchner and Drew Pyne battling for the starting job. The former probably had the inside edge from the outset based on how he and Pyne were used in 2021.
