Malik Zaire to start at QB vs Missouri

Florida interim head coach Randy Shannon announced on Thursday that graduate transfer Malik Zaire will start at quarterback for this week’s game against Missouri.

Shannon told the media on Monday that he was opening the quarterback competition during practice this week.

Zaire is 12-23 for 142 yards in limited action in two games this year after transferring from Notre Dame this summer.

Zaire replaces redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks who completed 59.7 percent of his 124 passes including three touchdowns and four interceptions.

Florida and Missouri will kick off at 12:00 PM on ESPN2.
