MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin quarterback Joel Stave is done for the season after breaking his left collarbone against Michigan State.
Coach Bret Bielema announced the news Monday, two days after the Badgers' 16-13 overtime loss to the Spartans. He says Stave will need eight weeks to recover.
Stave completed 70 of 118 attempts for 1,104 yards and six touchdowns in seven games. He threw three interceptions
Junior Danny O'Brien and senior Curt Phillips will vie for the starting spot for Wisconsin (6-3, 3-2 Big Ten Conference), which has a bye week before playing Indiana (1-3, 3-5) on Nov. 10.
