Allan Evridge (born June 24, 1985) was a quarterback for the Kansas State Wildcats football team in 2004 and 2005 and the Wisconsin Badgers in 2007 and 2008.[1][2]

2008 Wisconsin Badgers season[edit]

Evridge, a surprise starter at Wisconsin following the graduation of QB Tyler Donovan, seemed to get off to a good start in games against Akron, Marshall, and Fresno State, and got the Badgers off to a 19-0 lead over Michigan in Ann Arbor at the end of the first half. However, Evridge's disastrous second half (where he fumbled in the Michigan redzone, threw an interception for a touchdown, and failed to connect with receivers repeatedly) led directly to Michigan points and Wisconsin suffered a giant 27-25 upset. Against Ohio State the next week, Evridge threw an interception to Buckeye CB Malcolm Jenkins when Wisconsin had the chance to win or tie the game down 20-17. After an atrocious performance against Penn State in which he completed 2 passes on 10 attempts with an interception, Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema benched Evridge for the rest of the season in favor of backup Dustin Sherer. Evridge would score the only touchdown of the game on a 5 yard run, but his poor performances all but doomed Wisconsin to an 0-3 start in Big Ten play. The Badgers finished the year 7-6 overall, with a 3-5 record in Big Ten play.
