GAME THREAD: 2019 Wisconsin commit Graham Mertz playoff match-up

Yup, we’re doing this.

Don’t have anything better to do on a Friday night before the Wisconsin Badgers’ Saturday afternoon match-up against Purdue? Come on over to our B5Q game thread as we watch 2019 four-star quarterback commit Graham Mertz and Blue Valley North (8-3) take on Olathe North in some playoff action.

247Sports composite rankings list Mertz as a four-star commit, the No. 99 player overall and No. 4 pro-style quarterback in the nation.

According to the school’s football website, Mertz has completed over 63 percent of his passes for 3,132 yards with 44 touchdowns to just eight interceptions so far this season. Last week, Mertz passed for six touchdowns to help Blue Valley North advance. Can he pull off similar magic on Friday night?

So, uh, how can you watch? By simply streaming the game at the embedded live stream above from (with a huge h/t to the Wisconsin State Journal’s Jason Galloway).
