There are other players, yes, but when one man has twice as many catches as the rest of his group combined, his impact on a game is especially evident. So when Abbrederis sustained a head injury during the first quarter of Wisconsin's 35-6 victory against No. 19 Northwestern on Saturday, you can imagine the concern permeating through Camp Randall Stadium. As it turned out, Wisconsin didn't really need Abbrederis' services the rest of the way. Abbrederis caught two early passes for 74 yards, including a 63-yard touchdown off a play-action pass from quarterback Joel Stave.

Loaded with quick guards, Badgers will pick up tempo

MADISON, Wis. -- No one will ever mistake the pace of Wisconsin's basketball team for Houston's famed Phi Slama Jama bunch of the 1980s or UNLV's run-and-gun style under Tark the Shark in the early 1990s. In fact, the Badgers' plodding play has represented the complete antithesis of such explosive offenses for years. But before you hit the snooze button on another...

Badgers hope to reverse primetime luck on the road

MADISON, Wis. -- It's a good thing the Big Ten still doesn't schedule conference night football games in November.
