Thursday, Wisconsin Badgers head coach Gary Andersen addressed the media about Saturday's upcoming game against Maryland at Camp Randall Stadium. Andersen said that both nose guard Warren Herring and fullback Derek Watt will see action this week, which would be their first since leaving during the season opener against LSU.
The two veterans will bring added experience to both sides of the ball, as Herring will be greeted back to a defensive line in desperate need of help and depth. Andersen said there is no limit physically to the number of snaps each will play on Saturday.
The game can be seen Saturday at 11 a.m. CT on BTN. For more on Maryland, check out Zach Wingrove's Terrapins preview.
-- Andersen said the plan is for Tanner McEvoy to play more than just the one series he saw against Illinois. McEvoy will, however, only play at quarterback.
-- Andersen said that he was not sure if Watt would play any H-back, a position closer to tight end than fullback because of its spilt end nature.
-- Watt was originally slated to return in November, but Andersen said this game was one he had expected the fullback to be ready for.
-- Sojourn Shelton received three pass interference calls against Illinois. Andersen thought that he had a solid game, especially in zone defense packages and recognizing routes run by Illini receivers.
