Despite losing his spot after two fumbles last week, sophomore wide receiver Kenzel Doe will be the punt returner on Saturday "as long as everything looks good," Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema said.

Junior wide receiver Jared Abbrederis replaced Doe late in last week's game, but Bielema doesn't want to wear out the team's No. 1 receiver unless it's a necessity.

"I want Kenzel to have that role," Bielema said. "I think Abby sees that, too. ... If Abby's had a six-, seven-play series he's a little bit gassed. To go back out there on punt return, I'd rather give him rest."
