Evridge gets nod as Badgers QB

Fifth-year senior Allan Evridge has been named the starting quarterback for the University of Wisconsin football team.

He beat out junior Dustin Scherer and sophomore Scott Tolzein to line up behind center in the Aug. 30 opener against Akron.

Evridge was expected to get the nod, but the coach made it official Wednesday.

Evridge transferred from Kansas State, sat out the 2006 season and was Tyler Donovan's backup last year.
