Andersen Looking For Consistency From Stave

Madison (WQOW) -- The Wisconsin football team has pitched two shutouts in its first two games, but the head coach is saying there is still plenty of work to do.

Coach Gary Andersen continues to look for more consistency in the passing game. Against Tennessee Tech, Joel Stave threw a his second interception of the season. Stave was solid the rest of the way, going 24-29 with 219 yards and three touchdowns. Andersen says the young quarterback needs to limit his mistakes.


"You're going to throw a pick, you're going to make a bad decision, it's going to happen," says Andersen. "It's part of the process, but I think the challenge is that you can't just use the youth card, you can't just say that he's young so that's ok. Because it's not. But for him to bounce back is a big moment and I hope that it plays out to be a big moment as we make our way through the rest of the season."

Wisconsin faces a tougher foe next Saturday when the Badgers travel to face Arizona State.
