Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst isn’t discussing quarterback Graham Mertz’s status following reports that the redshirt freshman has tested positive for COVID-19. Chryst did say he was confident the ninth-ranked Badgers' game Saturday at Nebraska would go on as scheduled.
UW redshirt freshman QB Graham Mertz reportedly tests positive for Covid-19. The Badgers are awaiting the results of PCR test to confirm initial test. If that comes back positive, Mertz will have to sit out 21 days.
Graham Mertz threw five touchdown passes to match the Wisconsin record in a commanding first career start and the No. 14 Badgers beat Illinois 45-7 on Friday night to open the pandemic-delayed Big Ten football season.
