Wis­con­sin NT Sa­gapolu out; QB Horni­brook ques­tion­able

The Sun News - - Sports -

Wis­con­sin stand­out nose tackle Olive Sa­gapolu will miss the rest of the sea­son with a right arm in­jury, while quar­ter­back Alex Horni­brook re­mains ques­tion­able for the game at No. 21 Penn State on Satur­day.

Coach Paul Chryst says Sa­gapolu had surgery on Wed­nes­day af­ter get­ting hurt two weeks ago against North­west­ern.

The 6-foot-2 Sa­gapolu reg­u­larly drew dou­ble teams that helped free up play­mak­ing in­side lineback­ers T.J. Ed­wards and Ryan Con­nelly. The ath­letic se­nior fin­ishes with 23 tack­les, two sacks, an in­ter­cep­tion and a fum­ble re­cov­ery.

Fresh­man Bryson Wil­liams will take over full time as the starter.
