MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Joel Stave fared well in his road debut at quarterback for Wisconsin and coach Bret Bielema has been pleased with the redshirt freshman's poise in two starts.
Stave completed 12 of 23 passes for 214 yards and a touchdown in the Badgers' 30-27 loss to Nebraska on Saturday night.
He completed 9 of 14 attempts for 161 yards and a touchdown to help the Badgers to a 10-point halftime lead before the Cornhuskers rallied from a 17-point deficit. Wisconsin hosts Illinois on Saturday.
