Madison (WQOW) -- The Wisconsin football team's second fall scrimmage provided reason for optimism for the offense.
Joel Stave and Curt Phillips each impressed the coaching staff, leading the first team offense to touchdown drives. Freshman Tanner McEvoy also got some reps with the starters. He threw an interception but followed that up with two passing touchdowns to Derek Watt. But McEvoy's chances at the starting job took a hit when coach Gary Andersen mentioned the possibility that McEvoy may see the field as a receiver.
All in all, Andersen was happy with the work of his entire offense.
"You know, it was good for us to get things clicking," says Andersen. "If you've been to practices, they've done some really good things in practice, but practices is not games. It was good to see us making plays down the field. We dropped a big one, got to make that play, but it just felt better watching them from the back end. They got in a groove, they didn't get behind the chains, they were pretty successful."
Andersen said this weekend he would not announce a starting quarterback until the team's first game, August 31 against UMass.
