No. 14 Badgers won't unveil starting QB until LSU

MADISON, Wis. - No. 14 Wisconsin won't officially announce its starting quarterback until the season opener on Aug. 30 against No. 13 LSU.

Coach Gary Andersen made the announcement Monday following the team's second scrimmage. Andersen said that returning starter Joel Stave and challenger Tanner McEvoy had solid efforts in a scrimmage that included three offensive turnovers and one defensive touchdown.

Andersen will sit down with offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig and make a decision soon about the starting job, but he doesn't plan to share it. It's the same way he handled the competition last preseason before picking Stave.

The incumbent appears to be the front-runner. McEvoy's mobility may allow coaches to draw up packages for him even if he doesn't get the starting nod.
