Joel Stave will be Wisconsin’s No. 2 quarterback when the Badgers open Big Ten play on Saturday at Northwestern.
Stave struggled with accuracy in training camp and fell down the depth chart for the first four games of the season. Now, if the situation is right, Stave could play Saturday against the Wildcats in Evanston.
Redshirt sophomore Bart Houston held the backup spot for the first four games after Stave wasn’t ready to play.
Coach Gary Andersen said Stave has definitely progressed and is throwing the ball much better.
