Allen Robinson entered the 2013 season as the Big Ten’s undisputed top wide receiver. The Nittany Lion star earned the honor following his breakout 2012 campaign, in which he led the conference in receptions (77), receiving yards (1,013) and touchdowns (11). Through six games, Robinson is on pace for even better numbers. But is he the Big Ten’s best receiver? I asked our resident quarterback, Stanley Jackson, for his answer.
Jared Abbrederis had himself a night in Wisconsin’s 31-24 loss at Ohio State. The veteran wide receiver finished with 10 catches for 207 yards and one touchdown. Several of the receptions were impressive ones, too – none better than his leaping grab in the first quarter. Abbrederis made the grab over a defender and managed to hold despite a hard fall to the turf. See a photo gallery of the catch in this post.
The Wisconsin offense has had its ups and downs this season. It’s no secret. Wideout Jared Abbrederis knows it. But the unit may be coming to life after a solid effort in a 31-14 victory vs. Illinois last week that saw the Badgers notch 427 yards.
