WIAA State Championships:
St. Mary’s Springs 7, Eau Claire Regis 0
–The Ledgers took the opening kickoff and marched 80 yards in 19 plays, with Marcus Orlandoni capping off the drive with a one-yard score to put Springs up 7-0. The drive took 10 minutes and nine seconds off the clock – leaving Regis to touch the ball for the first time with just 1:51 left in the opening quarter. That one score was all the Ledgers would need – as their defense did the rest, holding the Ramblers to just 134 total yards (131 rush, 3 pass) in the contest.
With the victory, St. Mary’s Springs wins its third title in a row and its ninth WIAA State Championship and its 17th overall championship, when its eight WISAA titles are factored in. The Ledgers close the season 12-2, winners of 12 in a row after an 0-2 start. Regis finishes 13-1.

The Milwaukee Bucks have revealed their version of the new N-B-A “City” jerseys. Less than a week after the Brewers announced their new look, the Bucks called a Wednesday news conference for their “Cream City” jerseys. The uniforms are cream-colored with green and blue accents. They pay homage to the cream-colored bricks which give Milwaukee its unique look
If Purdue is going to qualify for a bowl game the Boilermakers are going to have to end a 13-game losing streak against Wisconsin – and they’re going to have to do it with a fourth-string, walk-on quarterback. Purdue hasn’t beaten Wisconsin since 2003. Wisconsin won last year’s matchup in triple overtime in West Lafayette. The Badgers need the game just as badly as Purdue. A win means the November 30th game against Minnesota will be for the Big Ten West title and a berth in the conference championship game.
