MADISON, Wis. -

Friday, JSOnline first reported that Tanner McEvoy will start at quarterback for Wisconsin in their opener against LSU. 

Saturday morning, McEvoy appears to have confirmed that report. McEvoy tweeted the following:

"So thankful for this opportunity! I appreciate all the love from our fans and its time to get to work! "

He doesn't actually say what the "opportunity" is, but given the tweet's timing, it appears he's the guy who will start in Houston on Aug. 30.
