Penn State was picked fourth in the Big Ten East in the preseason and 2-2 after an ugly loss at Michigan, prompting the athletic director to issue a public vote of confidence for third-year coach James Franklin.Two months later, who would have thought the eighth-ranked Nittany Lions would have thrown a wrench into the College Football Playoff hypotheticals by earning a berth in the Big Ten championship game opposite No. 6 Wisconsin?Things would have been so much simpler if Ohio State hadnt lost to the Lions on the road on Oct. 22.A win in Indianapolis on Saturday night would give the Lions (10-2, No. 7 CFP) two victories over top-10 teams to weigh against their losses to Pittsburgh and Michigan. Imagine the outrage in Happy Valley if the Lions beat the Badgers and, as conference champion, were excluded from the group of four teams to play for the national championship. It could happen.The Buckeyes (11-1, No. 2 CFP) would be at the mercy of the committee if Penn State wins, but the chairman already has said Ohio State has the better resume.If Wisconsin (10-2, No. 6 CFP) wins, the committee could logically pick Ohio State based on its overtime win over the Badgers in Madison on Oct. 15. If that happens, the city known as Madtown would surely be that.Franklin tried to stay above the fray Sunday when it came to playoff possibilities.To be honest with you, I dont really have a strong opinion, he said. Were focused on Wisconsin and excited about this opportunity. And after that game, whatever the powers that be decide, well be happy and excited for whatever that opportunity its.Five things to know heading into the Big Ten title game:---OLD VS. NEW: This will be the sixth Big Ten title game, and Wisconsin is in it for the fourth time. Penn State is making its first appearance and going for its first championship since 2008.The Badgers are 2-1 in Indianapolis, beating Michigan State 42-39 in 2011 and Nebraska 70-31 in 2012 and losing to Ohio State 59-0 in 2014.Wisconsin is 9-8 all-time against Penn State. This will be the first meeting since Nov. 30, 2013, when Penn State won 31-24 in a wild game in Madison.INJURY UPDATE: Penn State star running back Saquon Barkley is expected to play after injuring his right foot against Michigan State on Saturday, Franklin said.Barkley averages 101.6 yards a game to rank third in the Big Ten. He was held to 14 yards on 12 carries in the 45-12 win over the Spartans.Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst said starting quarterback Alex Hornibrook is day-to-day after getting knocked out of Saturdays game against Minnesota with an apparent concussion. Bart Houston played the entire second half. Chryst said Hornibrook told him he felt better Sunday.FRANKLINS JOURNEY: Penn State lost four straight to end 2015 and got off to a 2-2 start this season with those losses of 42-39 to Pittsburgh and 49-10 to Michigan. A few days after the loss in Ann Arbor, athletic director Sandy Barbour pledged allegiance to Franklin, saying his job was not in jeopardy.Despite a run of injuries that hit the linebacker corps especially hard and left the Lions without seven starters, Penn State turned into one of the hottest teams in the nation.Linebacker Jason Cabinda said he and his teammates never ruled out a chance to play in Indy.We talked about it all last season. That this was our goal and this is where we wanted to go, so we put our head down and went to work, Cabinda said. Every week we have improved and gotten better and now we have a tremendous opportunity to go Indianapolis next week and finish this thing and get a Big Ten championship.BADGER DOMINANCE: Wisconsin and Alabama are the only Power Five programs to reach conference title games four times since 2011. The Badgers have won at least 10 games six of the last eight years and are 17-3 in their last 20 games. Theyre 15-3 against Big Ten West teams since the conference went to the current divisions in 2014.ITS ABOUT DEFENSE: Wisconsin and Penn State rank Nos. 3 and 4 in total defense in the Big Ten, with the Badgers allowing 292 yards a game and the Lions 346.No one has been running much against either team lately. Only five opponents have run for 100 yards against the Badgers. Penn State has allowed no more than 110 yards on the ground in any of its last five games.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Borje Salming Jersey . The defending champion beat Gael Monfils of France 7-6 (6), 6-3, while second-seeded Andy Murray of Britain dispatched Edouard Roger-Vasselin, also of France, 6-3, 6-3. Making his first appearance since injuring his wrist a month ago, Del Potro had difficulty with his service games in the first set. Dominic Moore Jersey . Bjorn, who had a 36-hole total of 8-under 134, made a testing six-foot putt to save par on the 16th and a birdie on the 17th before bogeying the final hole after a misjudged approach shot. American Kevin Streelman was in second place after shooting a 69. http://www.cheapmapleleafsjerseys.com/?tag=adidas-wendell-clark-jersey . Barcelona also left injured defenders Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba out of its squad for the trip to Glasgow. That means that Marc Bartra will probably start again in the centre of the defence alongside Gerard Pique. Tie Domi Jersey . The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Lions have not announced the hiring, which was first reported by ESPN. Lombardi, the grandson of former Green Bay Hall of Fame coach Vince Lombardi, has been an offensive assistant on Sean Paytons New Orleans staff since 2007. Ted Kennedy Jersey . Hazard cut in from the left and scored with a swerving right-footed shot for ninth goal of the season, which proved to be enough for the victory despite Chelseas forwards again lacking a cutting edge up front. SAN DIEGO -- Left-hander Eric Stults gave up a leadoff double to Gerardo Parra and didnt feel good about his pitches. He quickly settled in, though, because he didnt give up another hit until Willie Bloomquist singled with one out in the ninth. Stults finished with a career-best two-hitter and Logan Forsythe hit a bases-loaded, two-run single with two outs in the sixth to give the San Diego Padres a 2-1 victory against the NL West-leading Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. "It was a masterful performance," manager Bud Black said. "He gave up the leadoff hit to Parra and then after that they didnt threaten. I mean, he was outstanding." Stults throws a fastball that hits 90 and a slow curve in the low 60s. "The wide range of velocities keeps the hitters off-balance, disrupts their timing," Black said. "He pitches. He truly pitches." Stults (6-5) retired 16 of the last 17 batters for his third career complete game. He struck out three and walked one. He previously had thrown two four-hitters. It was the Padres first complete game this season. "Anytime you start you want to finish the game," Stults said. "I felt like I was able to get a lot of quick outs early. The first inning I didnt have a good feel for my pitches. I felt like I was behind. Left the ball up to Parra to start the game off, so a leadoff double. But I was able to work through that kind of wildness for me and as the game went on get a better feel and my delivery was much better." After Parra doubled, he advanced on Bloomquists groundout and scored on Cody Ross sacrifice fly. "We had a rocky start, kind of adjusting to the ump, a couple of balls that were close," catcher Yasmani Grandal said. "We made the adjustment, closed down the gap. The game of baseball is basically just keeping guys off balance. Thats what he does. He keeps guys off balance. Thats why hes so successful." The fourth-place Padres pulled within four games of the Diamondbacks. San Diego has won four straight and seven of nine. The Padres (33-34) are within one game of .500 for the first time since April 4. They started 5-15. Bench coach Alan Trammell managed the Diamondbacks while Kirk Gibson served his one-game suspension stemming from Tuesday nights brawl against the Los Angeles Dodgers. "Just off-speed," Trammell said about Stults. "Thats what he does. He uses the hitters energy against them. Like anybody whos not a hard-thrower -- thats what they do -- they get guys to get off-balance, thinking that at some particular time theyre going to sneak a fastball, and occasionally they do but most of the time percentages say theyre not and he didnt.dddddddddddd" Trevor Cahill (3-8) tied his career high with 10 strikeouts but got into trouble in the sixth. The Padres loaded the bases with no outs in the sixth when Alexi Amarista walked, Chase Headley was hit by a pitch and Carlos Quentin beat out an infield single to third base. Cahill struck out Kyle Blanks and Will Venable before Forsythe singled to left-centre, bringing in Amarista and Headley. Forsythe took second on a throwing error by A.J. Pollock. "Those first-batter walks come back to haunt you," Cahill said. "I got ahead of Headley 1-2 and try to make a nasty pitch and hit him in the foot. "Its tough -- were in first place and you want to have an opportunity to get a bigger lead and I was just one pitch away. I made a bad pitch on Forsythe and couldnt get out of it." Cahill intentionally walked Yasmani Grandal and made way for Will Harris, who struck out Stults to end the inning. Cahill allowed two runs and five hits in 5 2-3 innings and walked three. NOTES: Gibson watched the game from a skybox with general manager Kevin Towers. ... Cahill set his career high with 10 strikeouts on June 26, 2010, against Pittsburgh. ... Before the game, the Padres honoured their 1998 team, which won the second NL pennant in team history before being swept by the New York Yankees in the World Series. Lefty Sterling Hitchcock, the MVP of the NLCS victory against Atlanta, threw out the ceremonial first pitch to catcher Carlos Hernandez. Anisha Gwynn Jones, daughter of Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, sang the national anthem. ... Towers was GM of the Padres in 1998. ... Arizona RHP Ian Kennedy was suspended 10 games and infielder Eric Hinske five for their roles in Tuesdays fight at L.A. Both are appealing. ... The Padres made several moves before the game. ...
