Video: IU football quarterback Jack Tuttle talks preparing for first career start

Saturday will mark the first career college start for Indiana redshirt sophomore quarterback Jack Tuttle.

The 6-foot-4 Tuttle steps in for Michael Penix, Jr., who went down with a season ending torn ACL last weekend.

Tuttle has seen action in six games at IU.  In 2019 he made five appearances and completed 6-of-11 passes for 34 yards, and he ran 9 times for 20 yards.  Tuttle went 5-for-5 for 31 yards on Saturday in his first 2020 appearance.

“He has worked extremely hard and prepared at a high level,” head coach Tom Allen said of Tuttle on Monday.  “He is a very good football player. That is why we recruit, why we develop, and why he came to Indiana, was for opportunities like this.”

No. 10/11 Indiana (5-1) and No, 18/19 Wisconsin (2-1) kick off on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET in Madison.  The game will be televised on ABC.
