DeShone Kizer Named Notre Dame Starting QB

Notre Dame’s never-ending quarterback battle was finally concluded on Wednesday when DeShone Kizer was named the starter.

It may have to do with the lights out performance Kizer gave in the Fighting Irish’s season opener loss last Sunday. Kizer completed 15 of 24 passes and scored six touchdowns.

When Kizer spoke to the media he said he did not expect to be sharing snaps with Malik Zaire like he had during the season opener.

“I had a conversation with Coach [Brian] Kelly today, and he decided that this week I was going to get the first snap for sure, and he kind of congratulated me on fighting through the process and encouraged me to maintain the same mindset and just ensured me that I would be the guy on Saturday,” Kizer said Wednesday.

“We’ll see how the game goes. Obviously, Malik [Zaire] is an amazing athlete, and there’s going to come a time where you’re definitely going to see him on the field, I believe. That hasn’t really been talked about too much. All I know is that [Kelly] told me to prepare to be the starter on Saturday, and that’s what I plan to do.”

Kizer made his debut last season when Zaire sat out with an injury. The redshirt sophomore led Notre Dame to an 8-3 record in 2015, finishing the season throwing for 2,884 yards, 21 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. He also had 520 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns.
