It seems a change is coming for Wisconsin as the Badgers begin their Big Ten schedule.
According to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Jeff Potrykus, the Badgers will make a change at quarterback by starting Alex Hornibrook against Michigan State. Bart Houston started the first three games, but Hornibrook helped Wisconsin survive Georgia State, 23-17.
Houston completed 10 of 18 passes for 91 yards against Georgia State while Hornibrook went 8-for-12 for 122 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
Houston led the Badgers to two field goal drives in his first six possessions. But Hornibrook led Wisconsin to two touchdowns, a field goal and threw an interception on his first four possessions.
Badgers coach Paul Chryst didn’t announce a change after Saturday’s game, but it looks like Wisconsin is making a switch. The senior Houston had beaten Hornibrook for the job prior to the season, but the redshirt freshman has sparked the offense when given a chance.
Wisconsin begins Big Ten play at Michigan State at noon on Saturday.
ICYMI: Alex Hornibrook puts @BadgerFootball ahead.
That was a close one.
