Malik Zaire to start against Missouri

02 Novembre 2017

When the Gators take on Missouri Saturday on the road, backup quarterback Malik Zaire will be leading the charge.

"This is his opportunity to get this team where it needs to be and not to be satisfied just because he's the starter", Shannon said in a statement.

Zaire will be the third quarterback to start for UF this season (after Feleipe Franks and Luke Del Rio) and the 12th since Tim Tebow left for the 2010 National Football League draft.

Florida quarterback Malik Zaire is getting his chance to start. "We want him to keep grinding and understand that competition is very good".

In limited action, Zaire is 12-of-23 passing for 142 yards since joining Florida. He has appeared in two games in relief of Franks, including last week's loss to Georgia at EverBank Field.

Franks has been the team's primary starting quarterback in 2017. Franks started six games while redshirt junior Luke Del Rio, out for the season with a broken collarbone, started the Vanderbilt game. With quarterbacks Everett Golson and DeShone Kizer also in South Bend, Zaire saw limited playing time before electing to transfer after graduating.

Franks, a redshirt freshman, had started six of the seven games in which he's played, completing 60 percent of his passes for 830 yards while throwing four touchdowns and four interceptions. Zaire was Notre Dame's starter to open the 2015 season against Texas.
