Badgers' coach expects to name starting quarterback soon

Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema says he expects to name his starting quarterback about 10 days before the season opener against Northern Illinois.

Four players are competing for the job with Dustin Sherer leading the depth chart right now.

Sherer is a fifth year senior who played in 11 games last season, including seven starts.

Also in the running are red-shirt freshman Curt Phillips, freshman Jon Budmayr and junior Scott Tolzein.

The first game is coming up Sept. 5.
