Malik Zaire plays in at least six games

This is not to knock Everett Golson necessarily – but between any injuries, blowouts, or off-games from Golson, I do not see coach Kelly hesitating to make the change in any given game.

From a blowout standpoint, considering how games could go against Rice, Purdue, Syracuse and Navy will, Zaire will see actual game experience.
