Madison, WISCONSIN (WKOW) Curt Phillips and Danny O'Brien will spend the bye week this week and practice next week competing for the starting quarterback position left open by the injury to Joel Stave.
Since Phillips redshirted in 2008 he has suffered three torn ACL.
He's done everything he could to come back time after time.
Coach Bret Bielema may not reveal his starter to anyone outside of the program before their next game at Indiana on November 10th..
But you have to think there's a good chance it could be Phillips starting in Bloomington a week from Saturday.
"I know this. There's probably not a kid that has invested more time to get on the field than Curt Phillips. His teammates love him. The coaches like him. Matt Canada has been intrigued with him ever since day one. He's got that 'it' factor that quarterback need to have. It'll be fun to see him really compete this week. When he gets his opportunity I expect him to have a little bit of success," Bielema said.
The winner of the Wisconsin-Indiana game has the inside track to represent the Leaders Division in the Big Ten Championship game.
