Any doubts about the No. 11 Wisconsin Badgers (1-0 Big Ten, 4-0 overall) after last week’s close win over the Georgia State Panthers are now gone as they upset the No. 8 Michigan State Spartans (0-1, 2-1) in a 30-6 win in East Lansing to remain undefeated.No one knew quite what we would see from redshirt freshman quarterback Alex Hornibrook in his first career start, but he blew any expectations out of the water, finishing 16-of-26 for 195 yards, a touchdown and an interception in one of the better performances by a Wisconsin passer in recent years.He dropped dimes up and down the field on the Spartans’ defense, his only interception coming on the last throw of the first half on a failed Hail Mary attempt.

In senior tailback Corey Clement’s absence, the Badgers offense struggled against a stingy Georgia State defense, needing someone to provide the Badgers with some firepower in order to avoid disaster.That firepower came from the left hand of redshirt freshman quarterback Alex Hornibrook.“I thought we just needed a little bit of a spark, and I liked how both of them had been working and preparing,” Wisconsin’s head coach Paul Chryst said.

Few teams have been able to make this Wisconsin Badgers’ defense (3-0) look vulnerable in the last few seasons, but the Georgia State Panthers found a way to do it last week, at least for a few quarters. Their quick passing attack, combined with double moves and deep shots on the outside, stretched the defense horizontally and vertically.
I’m just going to come out and say it: Football fans in Wisconsin have been spoiled by great quarterbacks. Going from arguably a top-five all-time QB, Brett Favre, to arguably a top-two in the game right now, Aaron Rodgers, is absurd, and many Packers fans seem to think that’s just the way football is.
Alex Hornibrook might be the starting quarterback this week, but that doesn't make him Aaron Rodgers.
