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.
