Zaire hits long pass, competition with Golson continues

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Notre Dame's spring game did little to determine who will be the starting quarterback in the fall other than showing Malik Zaire can throw a long pass but can't catch one.

Zaire threw a perfectly timed 68-yard touchdown pass that Will Fuller caught at the 6 and raced in for a touchdown midway through the second quarter. But then on a flea-flicker play drawn up by a fan to start the third quarter, Everett Golson attempted a long pass to Zaire but safety Max Redfield jumped higher and picked it off. Redfield appeared to taunt Zaire lying on the ground, then took off and was credited with a touchdown even though officials blew the whistle at midfield.

Neither quarterback talked to the media after the game. Golson hasn't talked to the media since the end of last season.
