Graham Mertz’s domination of Northwestern is setting social media on fire

Graham Mertz dominates the Northwest defense in his first game since Paul Chryst was sacked. The Wisconsin QB’s game caused a stir on social media.

Mertz had more than 200 passing yards before halftime against the Wildcats in Evanston. Mertz threw 3 touchdown passes in the first half. Skyler Bell caught the first while Chimere caught Dike on the other two.

Mertz hasn’t had the most consistent career as Wisconsin’s QB. In his first three years at Madison, he had 19 passing touchdowns and 16 interceptions. Jim Leonhard could be the one who can unlock Mertz’s potential.

Wisconsin fans breathed a sigh of relief after watching Leonhard’s first game as interim HC. Mertz can potentially bring Wisconsin back into the B1G West title conversation if he keeps playing like this.

Wisconsin leads Northwestern 28-0 at halftime.

Here are some of the reactions on social media:
