The Wisconsin Badgers moved on from a number of quarterbacks over the last few seasons, however, none were more polarizing than Graham Mertz. Prior to Wisconsin’s bowl game on December 4, 2022, Mertz announced he was entering the transfer portal. In the spring of 2023, Mertz joined the Florida Gators.
Mertz has had a successful season with Florida this season, however, it has unfortunately come to an end.
Former Wisconsin Badger Quarterback Graham Mertz Suffers Season Ending Injury
Coach Billy Napier said quarterback Graham Mertz suffered a non-displaced collarbone fracture during Saturday night’s 33-31 loss to Missouri. On third-and-5 with the Gators trailing 23-21, Mertz was injured while scrambling for 11 yards. Here is a video of the play:

Max Brown, who replaced Mertz admirably in the fourth quarter, will likely be Florida’s quarterback moving forward. With seven seconds left, Missouri scored a field goal to win the game. Brown, the former three-star prospect, had thrown only seven college passes before entering the Missouri game.
On the season Mertz had recorded 2,903 passing yards, a completion percentage of 72.9, 20 touchdowns, and just three interceptions.
