Notre Dame starting quarterback Malik Zaire was carted off the field with a fractured ankle on Saturday against Virginia and will miss the rest of the season according to team officials.

Backup QB DeShone Kizer helped the Irish escape with a 34-27 win over Virginia on Saturday.

Zaire made headlines earlier in the year when he said confidently that Notre Dame could beat Clemson on the moon.

“We’re going to Clemson this year. So?” Zaire said to ND Insider. “We could play you on the moon, and it wouldn’t matter. Your team is just not better than my team. I have faith in myself, and I have faith in my guys.”

In 2014, he had 21 completions out of 35 attempts for 266 yards and a touchdown. In the 2014 Music City Bowl 31-28 victory against LSU, Zaire completed 12 of 15 passes for 96 yards and a touchdown and had 22 carries for a rushing touchdown.

Notre Dame has accumulated several season-ending injuries including DT Jarron Jones, CB Shaun Crawford, RB Tarean Folston and now QB Malik Zaire.

Clemson will host Notre Dame in Death Valley on 10/3/15.

Clemson will relieve ND of the burden of being overrated.
