and Badger coach Gary Anderson said there’s no doubt that Abbrederis will be ready to play Saturday night when the Badgers face Illinois in Champaign.

Stave said he felt pretty good running around and had no lingering effects from the concussion he suffered in Saturday’s 35-6 win over Northwestern at Camp Randall Stadium.

Wisconsin still managed to scored 28 points after Abbrederis departed.

Abbrederis leads the Badgers in receiving.  He’s second in the Big Ten in receiving yards, averaging 107.7 yards per contest.

Illinois will not only have Abbrederis to contend with, they have struggled to stop the run.  The Illini currently ranks 11th in the Big Ten, allowing 195.4 yards per game.  They gave up 335 yards rushing to Nebraska earlier this month.
