QB Graham Mertz was taking out for a series last night, and QB Chase Wolf came in, but Chryst said that was the plan all along.
Dave Heller provides more context on the situation:
Paul Chryst said his plan was to give Chase Wolf a series then go back to Mertz. So there you go. (he said to himself) #Badgers

Chryst also talked about the Badgers improved on 3rd down efficiency on offense:
#Badgers coach Paul Chryst noted this last night: UW offense must be better on third down. UW was 7-21 in opener and 5-12 last night. Chryst made it clear he was talking about the unit, not just the QB.
