COLLEGES

FOOTBALL: Brandon Wimbush won’t need to look over his shoulder Saturday night when No. 12 Notre Dame hosts No. 14 Michigan in a season opener.

Coach Brian Kelly said the senior is his No. 1 quarterback.

Last season, Wimbush started 12 games during Notre Dame’s 10-3 campaign and finished with 803 yards and 14 rushing touchdowns and another 1,870 yards and 16 TDs through the air despite a 49 percent completion rate.

He gave way at times to Ian Book, who will be the backup.

Army Coach Jeff Monken said Kelvin Hopkins Jr. will start at quarterback on Friday night at Duke.

Hopkins, who had 40 yards rushing and 76 passing in seven games last season, has never played an entire game.
