Kelly says Notre Dame will use 2 QBs against LSU
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly says Everett Golson and Malik Zaire will share quarterback duties against No. 22 LSU in the Music City Bowl on Dec. 30.
Golson started all 12 games for the Irish (7-5), but has thrown 14 interceptions and fumbled the ball away eight times. He was replaced by Zaire, a sophomore, late in the first half in the regular-season finale against USC with Notre Dame down 35-0. Zaire led the Irish on a pair of scoring drives in 49-14 loss, completing nine of 20 passes for 170 yards.
Kelly said Monday evening he believes both can help the Irish win against LSU. Kelly says Golson has more experience and is the better passer, but Zaire is better with the read-option.
