With Alabama QB unknown, Wisconsin will be forced to adapt

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama's first depth chart of the year doesn't clear up the starting quarterback mystery at all. The top spot looking at the depth chart is inhabited by Jake Coker/Cooper Bateman/Alec Morris. In other words, one of the above. Tight end O.J.

Alabama quarterback Blake Sims desperately heaved a ball towards the end zone but saw it intercepted by Ohio State’s Tyvis Powell in his end zone. Instead of taking a knee, Powell elected to return it, an unnecessarily dangerous choice, especially that late in such an important game. He returned...
