Bollinger Named Unitas Award Candidate

Quarterback Brooks Bollinger was one of 14 candidates named for the 2002 Unitas Award, presented annually to the top senior quarterback in the country.

Brooks Bollinger, senior quarterback for the Wisconsin football team, has been selected as one of 14 candidates for the 2002 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, presented annually to the nation's top senior quarterback by the Golden Arm Educational Foundation of Louisville, Ky.

Bollinger, who last week was named to the Davey O'Brien Award's preseason "watch list," is the owner of a 23-7 career record as a starting quarterback. That leaves him just four wins from tying the school record and seven wins from becoming just the seventh quarterback in Big Ten history to win 30 games.

Bollinger, a native of Grand Forks, N.D., will lead the Badgers into battle on Saturday at UNLV. Kickoff for the nationally televised contest (ESPN2) is set for 7:50 CDT.
