Some things to watch in the Big Ten in Week 11:GAME OF THE WEEKNo. 2 Michigan at Iowa. The last time Michigan went to Iowa City as the No. 2-ranked team, in 1985, Jim Harbaugh was the quarterback and the then-No. 1 Hawkeyes dashed the Wolverines national championship hopes with a 12-10 win. Harbaugh, now the Michigan coach, wont be facing an Iowa team of 85 vintage on Saturday. The Hawkeyes have lost three home games and were all but eliminated from the West Division race with last weeks 41-14 loss at Penn State. But the Wolverines have lost three straight in Iowa City since last winning there in 2005, and this will be only the second game theyve traveled outside the Great Lakes State.BEST MATCHUPMinnesota at No. 21 Nebraska. The Gophers can still make the Big Ten championship game, but only if they win their next three games. All are difficult. First up is a trip to Lincoln, where they won in 2014 after erasing a 10-point deficit in the third quarter. Theyll be going against a Nebraska team still smarting from a 62-3 beat-down at Ohio State and with the status of quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. in doubt. Armstrong was going through a concussion protocol this week after getting knocked unconscious against the Buckeyes. If he cant play, Ryker Fyfe will make his second career start.INSIDE THE NUMBERSWisconsin, which hosts Illinois, has won 10 of 11 against the Illini. That includes six straight, matching the longest streak by either team in series history. ... Illinois three quarterbacks have combined to throw three interceptions, ranking fourth in the FBS and tied for first in the Big Ten. ... Nebraska has won 18 straight prime-time games in Lincoln since 2008. ... Rutgers has 16 sacks in nine games to top last years total of 12. ... With 30 career TD passes, David Blough has passed Purdue greats Len Dawson (29) and Bob Griese (28).LONG SHOTIndiana is a 6 +-point underdog at home to No. 12 Penn State. The Hoosiers, who need one more win for bowl eligibility, face one of the hottest teams in the nation. The Nittany Lions have won five straight and remain alive in the East Division race, a game behind Michigan. Theyve averaged 555 yards and outscored their last two opponents (Purdue, Iowa) by a combined 103-38. The Hoosiers have recorded 10 sacks and 28 tackles for loss in their last three games. The defense faces a much more difficult task in trying to corral Big Ten rushing leader Saquon Barkley.PLAYER TO WATCHMichigan QB Wilton Speight is coming off the best game of his career, having completed nearly 80 percent of his passes and throwing for 362 yards against Maryland, including a school-record 292 in the first half. Iowa has given up 29 pass plays of 20 yards or longer, the third-worst mark in the conference. If Speight gets on a roll, the Wolverines will be hard to stop.---More AP college football at http://collegefootball.ap.org Cheap Air Max Online . PETERSBURG, Fla. Cheap Air Max 2017 . "We have always prided ourselves on the way we play defence.

Wholesale Air Max Shoes .com) - Richie Incognito has reportedly been admitted to a psychiatric care unit in Arizona. TEMPE, Ariz. -- Now that his team is guaranteed to have a losing record for the first time in his four seasons in Arizona, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians next chore is to prepare a team headed nowhere for a Christmas Eve encounter with the Seahawks in Seattle.Its the Seahawks, Arians said at his Monday news conference, so we should be ready to play.Arians liked everything but his defense in Sundays 48-41 home loss to the New Orleans Saints. The outcome left Arizona at 5-8-1. The Cardinals finish the season with road games at Seattle and Los Angeles, and the best they could hope for is to wind up 7-8-1.But Arizona is 1-5 on the road with the only victory away from home at San Francisco, a team that stands 1-13.And a strong finish to the season would entail beating a Seahawks team that will have extra rest and something to play for when the teams meet at Century Link Field.Arizona has won in Seattle two out of three times under Arians, including last seasons 39-32 back-and-forth triumph en route to a 13-3 season and an NFC West title for the Cardinals.The way it went, to get way ahead, he said, to lose it, and then come back, it was very special.Now, Seattle (9-4-1) has sewn up the division title and is a half-game ahead of Detroit and Atlanta for the No. 2 seed in the NFC and the first-round bye that goes with it.Arians has a healthy respect for the Seahawks.Every time you play them, he said, you better have your big-boy pants on.That will be a big challenge for an inexperienced, makeshift offensive line that held up well against the Saints. So will the next game, the season finale against the rugged front of the Rams.Theyll have their hands full both times, Arians said. Being on the road with arguably the two best, most disruptive players in (Michael) Bennett and Aaron Donald, we have our hands full when we have a healthy offensive line.Two months ago in Arizona, the Cardinals and Seattle fought to an odd 6-6 tie with both teams missing chip-shot field goals that would have won the game in overtime.This is a much different Arizona squad, though, after a series of injuries.We dont have the ssame team we played them here with, but I like the way we played this past week offensively, Arians said.ddddddddddddSpecial teams, other than the (missed) extra point, were good. We had a couple of good kickoff returns. Defensively, weve got to show up.The coach described the play of his secondary as very, very below par for us.He said safety Tyrann Mathieu, playing despite a shoulder injury, gave it everything he had.But, he said of Mathieus play, it aint Ty.There were some bright spots.In addition to the overall strength of the inexperienced offensive line, Arians also liked the play of defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, the first-round draft pick who played after being inactive for most games this season.Robert did well, Arians said. The stat sheet didnt look it, but he was explosive. Hes been practicing really well.The coach has criticized Nkemdiche for not working hard enough in practice, but said effort isnt a problem now.The last six weeks he has (worked hard), Arians said. The opportunity presented itself this time. He had a really good week of practice.David Johnson set an NFL record by topping 100 yards from scrimmage in the first 14 games of a season. But Arians doesnt like Johnsons chances for reaching another huge milestone -- 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 yards receiving.Johnson needs 200 yards receiving to reach the goal.Ill be surprised if he gets it, Arians said. One-hundred yards as a back receiving is very hard to do, two weeks in a row against two really quality defenses, two best in the league.Game notes Quarterback Carson Palmer said after Sundays game that he expects to be back next season. ... Because the Cardinals play on Saturday, the players had Monday off. ... Arizona released cornerback Tharold Simon and promoted cornerback Harlan Miller from the practice squad. Miller was the Cardinals sixth-round draft pick this year out of Southeastern Louisiana.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jersyes Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
