Analyzing Jared Abbrederis' Monster Performance vs. Ohio State

Richard Langford@@noontide34Correspondent ISeptember 29, 2013

In an exciting first half against No. 4 Ohio State, Wisconsin posted 260 yards—159 of those yards came from catches made by Jared Abbrederis. The senior wide receiver went onto go for 10 grabs, 207 yards and a touchdown. 

That wasn't enough to have his Badgers avoid a 31-24 defeat, but it definitely warrants a closer look.

The 6'2" receiver made six catches in the first half—one of which was a touchdown. 

That 36-yard score put Wisconsin on the scoreboard, and it wasn't even Abbrederis' longest grab of the half. He also has a 64-yard catch.

That touchdown also wasn't his most impressive of the half. That honor has to go to this magnificent catch: 

The senior receiver was a one-man wrecking crew. Quarterback Joel Stave completed just 11 passes in the first half. It's safe to say, Stave has a favorite target. 

Even after halftime adjustments, Abbrederis was still able to haul in half of of Stave's 20 completions. 

Entering this game, Abbrederis had 23 catches for 365 yards and three touchdowns, and apparently he is just getting started.
