MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- Wisconsin’s starting quarterback against Northwestern will not be Alex Hornibrook. Instead, Jack Coan will be in line to make his first career collegiate start on Saturday morning.

Redshirt junior quarterback Alex Hornibrook is in concussion protocol. Hornibrook, who led the Badgers to a win over Illinois last week, has 1,251 passing yards, 11 touchdowns and 6 interceptions this season.

Coan has yet to play this season, he appeared in six games as a freshman in 2017 and completed all five of his pass attempts.
