 SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -Demetrius Jones started at quarterback for Notre Dame against Georgia Tech on Saturday, but Evan Sharpley entered the game late in the second quarter when the Fighting Irish fell behind 16-0.
Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis had said before the game he might use two quarterbacks, but kept his choice to start quiet to force Georgia Tech to prepare for different styles of quarterback and to try to keep pressure off his selection. The Yellow Jackets didn't appear to be perplexed by the Irish.
Jones ran the ball 12 times for 28 yards, was 1-of-3 passing for 4 yards and fumbled the ball away twice. Sharpley entered the game for the final series of the second half, completing 3-of-4 passes for 9 yards. Sharpley was sacked twice and Jones once.
Jones, a sophomore, was the No. 3 quarterback last season and ran the scout team. He didn't play last season, but led the Irish out of the tunnel alongside linebacker Maurice Crum before the game Saturday.
Sharpley was Brady Quinn's backup last season, throwing two passes and completing one.
The other Irish quarterback is Jimmy Clausen, who underwent arthroscopic surgery in the spring to have bone spurs removed from the elbow on his throwing arm.
