CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Quarterback Malik Zaire is out for the season after fracturing his right ankle in the third quarter of No. 9 Notre Dame's last-minute 34-27 win over Virginia on Saturday.
Zaire gained 3 yards on a designed run and was helped to the sideline, then taken away in a cart. Coach Brian Kelly announced Zaire was done of the year after the game.
DeShone Kizer replaced Zaire and C.J. Prosise ran 24 yards for a touchdown on the next play. Prosise replaced Tarean Folston, who was knocked out for the season last week with a knee injury.
Kizer rallied the Fighting Irish in the fourth quarter and completed a go-ahead 39-yard touchdown pass to Will Fuller with 12 seconds left.
Zaire was 7 of 18 passing for 115 yards, including a 59-yard touchdown to Fuller. He ran 10 times for 87 yards.
