Notre Dame true freshman Malik Zaire told the media that he will "without a doubt" beat out Everett Golson to become Notre Dame's starting QB.

"There will only be one guy starting on Aug. 30th against Rice at Notre Dame Stadium, there will only be one guy out on the field, and I believe that will be me," he said. Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly has stated that it's an open competition. Whoever he chooses will give the offense a running dimension absent with 2013 starter Tommy Rees. "It's always about finding that consistency at that position," Kelly said. "It's just going to take some time. I don't have a timetable on it. I'll know when it's running the right way and it's smooth. It's not there yet." Zaire, a southpaw, is trying to become the first left-handed QB to start a game in Notre Dame's history.
