It would appear that Paul Chryst will have both of his quarterbacks ready to go for Saturday night’s Big Ten Championship game between Wisconsin and Penn State.
Redshirt freshman Alex Hornibrook, who has started all nine Big Ten games for the Badgers this season, suffered an apparent concussion in the regular season finale against Minnesota. But Hornibrook practiced on Tuesday.
Hornibrook took over for senior Bart Houston, who started the first three games. Houston is expected to get some time on Saturday as well, after getting several opportunities throughout the course of the season.
