Bielema is quiet on this weeks starting QB

Wisconsin Badger coach Bret Bielema has already informed his quarterbacks

Joel Stave

who will start against UTEP (Texas-Elpaso) this week, but he’s not saying and won’t make his quarterbacks available to the media this week.

Danny O’Brien was pulled at halftime after the Badgers trailed Utah State 14-3 at halftime.  He fumbled and threw an interception prior to being pulled at the half.  The Badgers went with redshirt freshman Joel Stave in the second half and rebounded for a 16-14 victory. 

Wisconsin’s offensive coordinator, Matt Canada said he would prefer to stick with O’Brien and it would appear that O’Brien hasn’t done enough to lose his job.  But Bielema has spoken highly of Stave.
