SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Malik Zaire made a statement that he plans to challenge Everett Golson for the starting quarterback job at Notre Dame.

The sophomore left-hander threw for 292 yards and two touchdowns in the spring scrimmage on Saturday.

Golson, the former starter back from a yearlong academic suspension, threw for 154 yards on 13 of 24 passing and ran for a score.

The school also announced Saturday that the field at Notre Dame Stadium would be converted to artificial turf before the fall.
