Badgers WR Abbrederis Still Thinks Like a Walk-On

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- With Nick Toon now playing for the NFL's New Orleans Saints, Jared Abbrederis is the clear-cut No. 1 receiver for No. 13 Wisconsin.

Just don't try telling that to him.

The redshirt junior is a former walk-on at Wisconsin and tries to keep the same mindset that helped him climb the ladder in Madison.

After catching two touchdowns in the Badgers' season-opening 26-21 victory over Northern Iowa, Abbrederis expects to get more attention from opposing defenses every week going into Saturday's game at Oregon State.
