A three-year starter for the Badgers, John Stocco started 36 games at quarterback, the fifth-highest number in school history. In that time, Stocco became the third-winning-est quarterback in school history, totaling 29 in his time in Madison. He sits behind only Joel Stave and Darrell Bevell in that category. His .806 winning percentage trails only Scott Tolzien in the school record book as he amassed a 29-7 record during his tenure.

Stocco holds the UW record for the most 200-yard passing games in school history (17) and is tied with Russell Wilson for the most 200-yard games in a single season (8 in 2005). In that 2005 season Stocco had seven straight 200-yard games. His 7,227 passing yards are third-best in school history.

Stocco’s 47 touchdowns are tied with Joel Stave for the second-most in school history, and he did it while throwing 15 fewer interceptions. His passer efficiency rating of 134.1 in his career is fourth-best all time at UW, and he’s responsible for the highest single-game passer efficiency rating, a 296.68 against Indiana on Sept. 30, 2006.
