White, Abbrederis key for No. 22 Wisconsin


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- At most other schools, running back James White and receiver Jared Abbrederis would be the top attractions.

One's the active career FBS leader in rushing touchdowns. The other one of the top pass-catchers in the Big Ten.

At No. 22 Wisconsin, they can be overlooked in the shadows of two of the league's brightest stars in running back Melvin Gordon and linebacker Chris Borland, at least outside Badgers country.

And that's just fine with White and Abbrederis as long as the Badgers (5-2, 3-1 Big Ten) keep on winning.

White says he's used to it. He played second-fiddle to Montee Ball the last two years. Abbrederis keeps making plays in Wisconsin's run-first offense.

The Badgers have a bye this week. It's an opportune time with Borland resting up a sore hamstring.
