EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings will be without their starting quarterback when they face the defending Super Bowl champions. Christian Ponder has been ruled out because he hasn't yet passed all his post-concussion tests. Matt Cassel will start, with Josh Freeman backing him up. However, Adrian Peterson is back at practice for the Vikings.
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - The Detroit Red Wings got third-period goals from Johan Franzen and Tomas Tatar to defeat the New Jersey Devils, 3-1. Joakim Andersson also scored and Jonas Gustavsson made 10 saves for Detroit, which has won five of six.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Michigan State has a lot more riding on today's Big Ten championship than just a chance to keep Ohio State out of the national title game. The Spartans feature a typically stout defense that could prove troublesome for the Buckeyes' up-tempo offense. The Buckeyes are trying to extend their school record winning streak to 25.
DETROIT (AP) - The BCS bowl hopes are over for Northern Illinois. The Huskies lost to Bowling Green in the Mid-American Conference title game in Detroit, 47-27. The loss came despite a 126-yard performance by Jordan Lynch that broke his own single-season record for yards rushing by a quarterback in major college football.
