Wisconsin didn’t look sharp at all last week against Notre Dame, raising questions about the offense — particularly the quarterback.

But Badgers coach Paul Chryst doesn’t think the struggles will hurt his team’s chances of a great season. He discussed it in his weekly press conference on Monday.

“I still have a lot of confidence and belief in the group we have in the locker room and the coaches,” Chryst told reporters. “Yeah, it hasn’t been going the way we’d like it and it shows in the results. … You gotta own it and go forward.”

Sophomore Graham Mertz has been the starter for Wisconsin all year, but his performance against Notre Dame had Badgers fans asking if it should stay that way. Mertz completed 18 of 41 passes for 240 yards, 1 touchdown and a whopping 4 interceptions — including two pick-sixes on his last two full drives.

The Badgers have a tough task ahead to bounce back as they welcome No. 14 Michigan to Camp Randall Stadium.
