If Colorado (16-14) wins, the Buffaloes will play host.

Downingtown's Bryn Boggs, an Inquirer first-team all-area football selection this past season, has made an oral commitment to Wisconsin. Although Boggs, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound running back/defensive back, rushed for more than 1,000 yards this past season and 2,773 in his career, Badgers coach Barry Alvarez plans to use him as a cornerback, Downingtown coach John Barr said. Boggs, who helped lead the Whippets to the Class AAAA state championship game this past season, also made visits to Clemson, West Virginia and Georgia Tech before deciding Monday on Wisconsin.

Woodbury fullback/linebacker Chris Pressley has made an oral commitment to attend Wisconsin, Woodbury coach Zack Valentine said. "He felt comfortable with his visit and with the academics," Valentine said. Pressley, a bruising 6-foot-1, 258-pound senior who rushed for 1,590 yards last fall and was a second-team all-South Jersey selection, carries a 94 average in class and plans to major in business law, Valentine said. Pressley, who was recruited as a running back, is built like Overbrook High graduate Ron Dayne, who went to Wisconsin and won the Heisman Trophy in 1999 and is now with the New York Giants.

Jerry Butler, a lightning-quick running back from George Washington High, needed only one official recruiting visit to make up his mind. Butler, clocked at 4.19 seconds in the 40-yard dash, has made an oral commitment to play football for the University of Wisconsin. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound senior visited the school over the weekend and committed to Badgers coach Barry Alvarez before returning home Sunday. Football recruits cannot sign binding national letters of intent until Feb. 2. "It just felt like I really fit in there," Butler said.

Donald Trump hit a chassis-bending pothole on the road to the Republican presidential nomination Tuesday in Wisconsin. His double-digit loss to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz increases the likelihood of a rare contested GOP convention in July and exposes Trump's vulnerabilities in an industrial state with a large working class, the kind of demographic turf that had been favorable to him. It could be a turning point. At one point, Trump led in Wisconsin polls and then slipped as the Republican apparatus coalesced around Cruz, and Trump stumbled into a succession of controversies.

Penn and Wisconsin had waged the battle of the afternoon in the final race of the day at the 87th annual Intercollegiate Rowing Association Championships on Onondaga Lake yesterday, but as the crews of the varsity eights collapsed in their shells, no one was certain who had won. "It was five strokes (remaining) at the most when we pulled even," said Andrew Goldberg, the coxswain in Penn's boat. "I didn't know who won. I really didn't know. Wisconsin didn't know either. " As it turned out, the Quakers' dramatic charge had given them a victory by two-tenths of a second, as they finished in 5:56.

PASADENA, Calif. - Although Stanford didn't score many style points in the 99th Rose Bowl, the Cardinal could celebrate because it didn't let Wisconsin score any points at all after halftime. Kelsey Young and Stepfan Taylor ran for first-quarter touchdowns, Kevin Hogan passed for 123 yards, and No. 8 Stanford won its first Rose Bowl since 1972, beating the Badgers, 20-14, on Tuesday night. Jordan Williamson kicked two field goals for Stanford, including a 47-yarder that gave the Cardinal a 17-7 second-quarter lead.

BOSTON - Just off the TD Garden court, Scoop Jardine put his head against his father, both rubbing the back of the other's head, smiling and loving the moment. "I really want to cry, but I'm going to hold it in," the Syracuse point guard told his father, Tony. Jardine had just experienced what had to be the biggest victory of his collegiate career, and by a razor's edge avoided it being the last game of his career. The Orange are into the NCAA Elite Eight for the first time in nine years because they forced a tough last shot out of a hot team, getting past Wisconsin, 64-63, in a thriller that saw the losers make 14 three-pointers, including six in a row in the second half.

Massachusetts Gov. Michael S. Dukakis yesterday regained the upper hand in the tight Democratic race with a solid win over Jesse Jackson in the Wisconsin primary. Sens. Albert Gore Jr. of Tennessee and Paul Simon of Illinois trailed far behind, and the results further weakened their candidacies. Gore, after a strong showing in the Super Tuesday voting last month, failed again to win outside the border states, nor did he reach the threshold for continued matching federal funds.

At his weekly meeting with members of the media yesterday, Temple football coach Bobby Wallace pointed out a couple of positives to take from the Owls' 63-16 loss at No. 20 Arizona State on Thursday. It was the first game of the season for both teams. "The score looks horrible, and I'm embarrassed about it, but not about how we played at times," Wallace said. "It's not like they toyed with us or manhandled us. We're playing a top 20 football team at their place, and I think for a quarter and a half, we played well.

"It's not the will to win that matters. ... It's the will to prepare to win that matters. " - Paul "Bear" Bryant HOUSTON - People here at Ted Cruz's campaign headquarters are meticulously preparing to win a contested convention, if there is one. Because Donald Trump is a low-energy fellow, Cruz will be positioned to trounce him in Cleveland, where Trump's slide toward earned oblivion would accelerate during a second ballot. Wisconsin has propelled Trump, a virtuoso of contempt, toward joining those he most despises: "losers.

It's time to go back where we began: to realizing not only that Donald Trump will lose the Republican presidential nomination, but that he could be so weakened by the end of the primaries that his party will not even have to worry about choosing someone else. I feel your skepticism. Hasn't Trump so far defied all predictions of his demise? Absolutely. Hasn't every claim that "now he's gone too far" been wrong? Of course. Let's be honest about journalists: We find a lot of ways of being wrong.

MILWAUKEE - Up and down the radio dial, regional conservative talk-show hosts have deconstructed and mocked Donald Trump for months. Gov. Scott Walker opposes him. So do leading state Republican legislators. Wisconsin has become the Battle of Thermopylae for the stop-Trump forces, with the state's GOP establishment playing the role of the Spartans. Polls suggest Trump, the front-runner for the Republican nomination, could lose big Tuesday in the presidential primary here. If his opponents can keep Trump from winning more than a handful of Wisconsin's 42 delegates, they would make it harder for him to reach the 1,237 required for nomination in the primary season and increase the likelihood of a contested convention in July.
