INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Fifth-year senior Bart Houston will start at quarterback for No. 6 Wisconsin on Saturday night in the Big Ten championship game against No. 8 Penn State.

The team made the announcement on its official Twitter site.

Houston replaces redshirt freshman Alex Hornibrook, who moved in front of Houston on the depth chart in late September. Hornibrook was listed as questionable with a head injury.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Hornibrook could play Saturday night. If he can, coach Paul Chryst said he would not hesitate to use both quarterbacks - as he has done regularly this season.

The Badgers (10-2) are making their fourth appearance in the title game’s six-year history, and the winner could earn one of the coveted four playoff spots.
