MADISON, Wisconsin (WXOW) - What many may have thought was a foregone conclusion before the season was put in doubt by the Badgers 16-14 win over Utah State.
That is, who will go forward as the number one quarterback?
For the second straight week, Maryland transfer Danny O'Brien left a lot to be desired, throwing for only 63 yards and losing a fumble in one half of play.
"[The] number one reason I made the transition at quarterback was to protect the ball," Head Coach Bret Bielema said. "For us to win at Wisconsin, we can't turn the ball over."
Joel Stave did not lose the football but completed just 15 yards worth of passing.
Stave said, "I'm not too worried about that quite yet. We'll go in tomorrow, watch the film and see what happens from there."
Then, there's senior Curt Phillips waiting in the wings. Because of all that, head coach Bret Bielema said it's a wait and see situation.
"I'm happy we won the game," O'Brien said, "If I'm the guy, I'm going to keep having all the confidence in the world in myself, and if I'm not the guy, I'm going to be there to support whoever's in the game."
