Evridge #3 on depth chart, Hill's status uncertain


Not only is Allan Evridge no longer the Badgers starting quarterback, he's not even the immediate backup.

UW football head coach Bret Bielema announced Monday that Evridge is number three on the depth chart behind both junior Dustin Sherer and sophomore Scott Tolzien.

That means, unless something drastic happens, the Allan Evridge era is over.

The sophomore Tolzien is the Badgers number two quarterback and despite throwing two interceptions and no touchdowns, Sherer is still the Badgers starter.

"I like the energy that Dustin brings. Obviously some of the accuracy was an issue, but overall he played well. Scott Tolzien will be the backup and we'll watch him progress," Bielema said.

The status of running back P.J. Hill's is still uncertain. Hill suffered a foot injury at Iowa.

It's the same injury he suffered last year that kept him out a good chunk of the season. If Hill can't go, John Clay and Zach Brown will carry the load.

The Badgers will try to snap their first four-game losing streak since 1996 when Illinois comes to Camp Randall Stadium for homecoming this Saturday morning at 11.

A kickoff time has also been set for the Badgers game at Michigan State on Saturday, November 1st. That'll be an 11 a.m. kickoff in East Lansing. It will be shown live on either ESPN or ESPN2  that's still to be determined.
