Who Will Play QB For UW vs. IU?

Madison, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- The Wisconsin football team is getting back to work after a bye week.

The Badgers can clinch a second straight trip to the Big Ten Championship Game with a win this Saturday at Indiana.

Once again, there's a question who'll start at quarterback for Wisconsin.  Joel Stave has a broken collarbone, so it'll be either Curt Phillips or Danny O'Brien facing the Hoosiers.

Head coach Bret Bielema says he knows who it'll be, and he'll tell the team, Tuesday.  As far as the media is concerned, Bielema's saving that nugget for later this week.

"I think both Curt and Danny knew last week that everything was being watched and monitored," Bielema says, "both of them Wednesday and Thursday practiced extremely well. Both of them have their own set of skills but I don't think the offense changes much when they're in there. Now they know what's in front of us. I think they both want Wisconsin to win so I think it's going to be interesting to see how it plays out."

Saturday's game at Indiana kicks off at 11:00 A.M. (CST) and will be televised by ESPN2.  One week from Saturday, Ohio State will be at Wisconsin.  That game will kick off at 2:30 P.M., and will be shown here on WXOW.
