WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. Nike Air Max 2017 . -- No. 6 Wisconsin did everything it could to get back in the College Football Playoff chase Saturday.Its probably going to take more than a blowout at Purdue.T.J. Watt returned an interception 17 yards for a touchdown, and the Badgers scored 35 points in the final 8 1/2 minutes of the first half of a 49-20 victory against the lowly Boilermakers.Now comes the hard part: Figuring out if Wisconsin belongs in college footballs Final Four.When we looked at our schedule, we thought that there wasnt one that we couldnt win, quarterback Alex Hornibrook said. We thought we would win every one of them. We did a good job focusing from week to week.To have any chance, the Badgers must keep winning. Wisconsin (9-2, 6-2, No. 7 CFP) has won five straight and can clinch the Big Tens West Division title with a win next weekend.Two more victories, and the Badgers would be right in the mix. But to pull that off, they are going to need a better start than they had against Purdue, when they were hampered by a stagnant ground game, ineffective passing attack and struggling defense.Then coach Paul Chryst inserted fifth-year senior Bart Houston at QB, and everything changed. The opening-day starter immediately led Wisconsin on an 87-yard drive that ended with Alec Ingolds 1-yard plunge for a 7-3 lead. Watt picked off David Blough on the next offensive play.Bradrick Shaw scored on a 7-yard run with 3:03 left in the half. After another Blough interception, Houston hooked up with a wide-open Ingold on a 19-yard TD pass and Shaw added a 33-yard TD run in the last minute of the half.All the Boilermakers (3-8, 1-7) mustered during the stretch was a 75-yard TD pass from Blough to DeAngelo Yancey.I have to do my job, Blough said. I cant do my job just half the time. The turnovers hurt. We cant turn it over and expect to be in the game against one of the top teams in the country. With those two interceptions, it was one big joke with one batted ball and then another batted ball.Corey Clement rushed for 112 yards and a touchdown for Wisconsin.THE TAKEAWAYWisconsin: The Badgers didnt get the help they needed to wrap up the West, but the win certainly keeps their playoff hopes alive.Purdue: Theres one week to go in the Boilermakers dismal season. But 18 players and probably most, if not all, of the coaching staff said goodbye to Ross-Ade Stadium in front of a scant crowd.T.J.S SWATSWisconsin linebackers Watt and T.J. Edwards took turns celebrating. In the first half, both deflected Blough passes, came down with the ball and each turnover led to a touchdown. On Purdues opening possession of the second half, Edwards and Watt also came up with sacks of Blough.What a play by T.J. (Watt), Badgers coach Paul Chryst said. To knock it down is a really good play. To get a pick is a really good play. To do both that changed (the game).KEY NUMBERSWisconsin: The Badgers entered with 14 interceptions and padded that total with three more in the first half, giving them seven in the past two weeks. ... Wisconsin has produced a 100-yard rusher in six straight games. ... The defense has allowed only five touchdowns in five road games this season. ... Clement became the 17th rusher in school history to top the 1,000-yard mark. ... Houston was 5 of 6 for 102 yards with one TD, and Hornibrook was 7 of 9 for 89 yards with one TD pass.Purdue: Blough was 14 of 30 for 206 yards with two TDs. Yancey caught six passes for 155 yards and two scores. ... After being outscored 114-17 in the second halves of the past four games, the Boilermakers had only a 14-10 deficit in the final 30 minutes Saturday. ... Defensive lineman Jake Replogle returned from a concussion to play in his home finale.UP NEXTWisconsin: Will try to keep the Paul Bunyan Axe for a 13th consecutive year when it hosts Minnesota.Purdue: Hopes to snap a three-game losing streak against rival Indiana. The Boilermakers havent lost the Old Oaken Bucket in four straight years since the 1940s.---For more college football: and ;Nike Air Max 2017 Uomo . -- Gus Malzahn finally had his day in Fayetteville. Nike Air Max 2017 Nere Oro . Aduriz headed home Markel Susaetas cross in the sixth minute to open the scoring at San Mames Stadium. He bettered that with a long-range blast that went in off the goal frame in the 18th, and converted a penalty in the 72nd after Diego Mainz was sent off for fouling Aduriz with only the goalkeeper to beat. . -- San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks was fined $15,570 by the NFL on Wednesday for his hit on Saints quarterback Drew Brees last Sunday. Dusty Imoo figured that Saturday would be a long day.The Los Angeles Kings goaltending development coach had already been called on to replace goaltending coach Bill Ranford, who was in Winnipeg participating in the alumni game that preceded the Heritage Classic between the Winnipeg Jets and Edmonton Oilers. With Kings franchise goaltender Jonathan Quick out with a groin injury, Imoo was also scrambling to help the team stabilize its situation in net.And that was all before Los Angeles expected starting goaltender, Jeff Zatkoff, left practice that day with a groin injury. Zatkoffs absence left the Kings with Peter Budaj as the lone goalie for their game that night against the Vancouver Canucks, and forced L.A. to call up Jack Campbell from its American Hockey League affiliate in nearby Ontario.Campbells recall had further repercussions. It left Imoos son, Jonah, as the Ontario Reigns only goalie. What ensued was a unique evening that the hockey world, not to mention the Imoo family, is still talking about.I knew it was an original situation and I could tell as the game approached that it was developing a life of its own, with the cameras and fans, Dusty Imoo said. Its been kind of crazy. I had no idea it would get this much traction.Traction from sports media is exactly what you get when a 46-year-old coach is forced to rush back to Ontario so he can serve as a backup in his 22-year-old sons first major pro start. When word started spreading on social media that Dusty would serve as Jonahs backup, the story took off. It happened so fast that the elder Imoo wasnt even able to make travel arrangements to Southern California for his wife, who lives with their three other children in Vancouver.Even several days later, Dusty and Jonah Imoo were still processing on the unique moment they shared on the ice.When I went into the dressing room and saw our stalls and gear and name tags next to each other, it was an unreal thing, said Dusty. Sitting next to him and getting our gear on together for a real professional hockey game, and his first one. That I could be there and do that with him was more than a dream come true. I was a teammate and I got a stool, but I didnt sit on it very much. I worked the gate and got right into the game. I was yelling at refs and having fun.The younger Imoo stopped 26 of 31 shots in a 5-4 overtime loss to the San Jose Barricudas. And while the press onslaught that followed kept asking him to discuss his one night as his fathers teammate, Jonah Imoo is mostly preoccupied with developing -- on his own merits -- as a goaltender.The more I play, the more comfortable I will feel, said Jonah. For my first game, I did feel pretty comfortable. Obviously it was a lot of fun. You want to play a little more just to build up more trustt. Air Max 2017 Uomo Bianche. At least hell have someone other than his father backing him up. The Reign called up goaltender Jack Flinn from Manchester of the ECHL following Saturdays game and the Kings signed former NHL goaltender Anders Lindback to a professional tryout on Tuesday. Lindback must wait for his work visa to be processed before he can play.As memorable as their shared game was, Dusty Imoo has been fortunate to have his family around for many of his finest moments in the sport. When he earned his Japanese citizenship and backstopped the Japanese national team at the 1998 Nagano Olympic Games, his kids, including then-4-year-old Jonah, were there in full face paint, cheering on his overmatched squad. When he won a 2000 league title in Japan, where he played professionally for more than a decade, Dusty brought his youngest son, Makito, onto the ice. Just months old at the time, Makito Imoo even appeared in the Seibu Prince Rabbits celebratory team photo.But when it comes to indelible moments that combine Dusty Imoos love for his family and his sport, there might be a new standout.I was emotional at times. During the game not so much because it was so intense, said Dusty. But before the game, for sure. And then after, when I started reading stuff and seeing Jonahs interviews, that meant a lot.That sentiment is shared by his son.Its tough to explain how it felt. Something like that never happens, said Jonah. It was really cool having him there on the bench because he is my goalie coach and my dad. Hes given me tips my whole life. During the TV timeouts, he always had something good to say. Something reassuring and helpful.Life for the Imoo family mostly returned to normal after that AHL game. Jonah returned to practice, while Dustin flew to Vancouver the next morning to spend a few days with the rest of the family. But theyll be reunited during a weekend road trip that will see Ontario play three games in three nights.With Lindback and Flinn in the fray, Jonah will focus on retaining the starting job with Ontario. Meanwhile, his father will continue to find a way to stabilize the franchises goaltending situation. At least he wont be called on to serve as a backup again anytime soon.Im off the hook, he said, joking.Just days removed from this once-in-a-lifetime confluence of events, Dusty Imoo cant help but feel a little emotional about that wild night he shared with his son.I will always ... he said before pausing to correct himself. We will always have this moment. I know Jonahs going to go on and do other things, whether it be with the Kings or someone else. Hes going to have other memories. But well always have this. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
