Saturday at the home of the NFL Chicago Bears, a tale of two quarterbacks will unfold. Previously Wisconsin’s Graham Mertz and Notre Dame’s Jack Coan were teammates on the Badgers. In 2019 Coan led UW to the Big Ten Championship Game. His play was responsible and occasionally inspiring. But an injury thrust Mertz into the lineup for the 2020 campaign. Mertz was the highest-ranked recruit in Wisconsin history. Yet he hasn’t reached Coan’s College football betting level as a starter. Two Wisconsin quarterbacks will determine one winner between the Badgers and Fighting Irish.
