wilson looking. fires across the field! oh, what a pass! 36-yards! and a first down for the badgers. >> charles: when i talked with the offensive coordinator and asked him about jeff duckworth. he said i never call plays specifically for him but i never mind people throwing the football to him. how about him fighting off the defensive. >> fourth and sixth. the hand-off. touchdown, wisconsin! montee ball, 7-yards and the
badgers retake the lead! >> charles: now, they are going to go for two again. want to at least have a field goal difference if possible. that hole is wide open on the running play. now, don't be surprised here, gus, if they use wilson's legs, move him a little bit in this situation rather than just receiving him in the pocket. maybe get him to the edge with the run/pass option. >> gus: oust shotgun. wilson. in trouble. reverses. wilson back of the endzone. they got it! pedersen!
what it play by russell wilson! he has been a magician. and wisconsin takes a three-point lead with 3:45 to play in the big ten championship. >> charles: i called for a run pass option to get him to the corner. he used his legs anyway just in the pocket. >> gus: 3:45 to go. 42-39. badgers. look, it's ok to take the occasional gamble-

the badgers up three. the last time they played it ended on a hail mary. what did that pass from russell wilson feel like to abbrederis -- excuse me tortion duckworth. almost felt like a hail mary pass to give them a position now to be ahead in the game. >> gus: no question. as wisconsin sends it away. hill and bell back deep. short kick. fielded at the 35. >> charles: and the reason they did that is they had trouble in kickoff coverage. didn't want them to break a big one. >> gus: the last time the two teams met each other on october 22, a hail mary determined the outcome. russell wilson keeping his team in it with the lead but here comes sparty! we could never all agree on what kind of pizza to get. someone would always have to settle. but now that all of our favorite pizzas from pizza hut are just ten dollars each, everyone can get exactly what they want.

>> gus: let's take a look at the ford game summary. >> charles: and this action has really heated up. the numbers really starting to look similar. other than sacks, michigan state getting up to russell wilson but late in the game, wisconsin has rallied big time to take the lead. >> gus: first down and ten at the 37. look at the time-outs remaining. michigan state with two. cousins in the shotgun. can he do this again? to the sideline. incomplete. that was thrown high for keshawn martin. and shelton johnson was right there in the vicinity. >> charles: he played a nice game in coverage. one interception. how many times have we seen him over the top helping out in coverage and forcing
incompletions? >> keshawn martin and b.j. cunningham the two receivers for michigan state have been wonderful as well. second and 10 at the 37. they hand it off. bell. and bell. crosses the line of scrimmage by mike taylor. who grabbed him and that makes it third down and 8 at the 39. >> charles: wisconsin is not a heavy pressure team on defense. i will be interested to see here on third and eight if they want to line up in the radar, no one down and bring pressure to kirk cousins. >> gus: watch nichols at the top of the screen. cousins. out. fires. and it's caught! keshawn martin.
ever. >> charles: look at him go up and get it. did the first foot come down? >> gus: oh, my goodness. >> charles: look, in the white with the foot. oh, the foot came down in and out. i don't know if you are going to be able to let that one stand. >> referee: the previous play is under further review. >> charles: watch how he comes down. oh. right there and see he is in the white. i think that is an incomplete pass. that is going to come back. >> gus: his toe touched first. there is. >> charles: there is the to but that foot is not squarely in the field of play. does he have the possession? i think it will come down to being an incomplete pass because the foot is not clearly
in bounds. >> check in with mark in the studio in los angeles. he is our rules analyst. mike, what a play. >> two things, gus, you got to look at here. they don't have the full step rule like the nfl. is the toe down inbounds but then he is going to the ground out-of-bounds. does he hold on to the ball when hits the ground or does it come loose while laying out-of-bounds. focus on the tow there but here as he goes to the ground watch the ball pop out of his happens. you have got to look at this and i think it is an incomplete pass. >> charles: the toe would keep him inbounds but not completing the process of the catch would make it an incomplete pass. >> that's correct. i think they will reverse this to incomplete. >> gus: i think it's a catch. >> charles: let's see as he goes to the ground as mike is talking about. does he maintain possession and does the ball stay. does it hit the ground. watch. going through. going through. ball stays with him.
if it is a toe, if it's the toe. >> referee: following the video review it has been determined that the receiver's foot was down out-of-bounds. the pass is incomplete. >> gus: and you guys are right. >> referee: at the 38.5-yard line. the clock is, correct. >> gus: thank you, mike. and thank you, charles. so incomplete. look at this. >> charles: this is how close it is. toe taps, but look at where the foot is. look at how much white is there. that is what the officials are determining, not a catch. >> gus: so that brings up fourth down and eight with 2:57 to go and michigan state is going to punt it. >> charles: but if you are wisconsin you don't even think about rushing here. what you play is punt safe. all you want is the football. you have a three-point lead. don't run into the kicker. >> gus: sends it away. abbrederis with the fair catch
at the 18. a 42-yard punt. montee ball and the wisconsin offense comes back on the field and they will look to eat up the clock. look, it's ok to take the occasional gamble- as long as it's something like switching from boxers to briefs. but you never roll the dice on your truck. so go with the sure thing, ford f-150. jd power and associates just gave f-150 their highest award for initial quality. add to that the best mix of torque and fuel economy you get with its ecoboost engine, and you're money, baby. this is the future. this is the ford f-150. forty years ago, he wasn't worried about retirement. he'd yet to hear of mutual funds, iras, or annuities. back then, he had something more important to do. he wasn't focuseon his future but fortunately, somebody else was. at usaa we provide retirement solutions for our military,

up by dennard. >> charles: stays inbounds which is nice for wisconsin. making michigan state use a time-out. >> gus: and coach brew, does wisconsin even think about throw hing the ball on this drive? >> absolutely not, gus. what they have got to do here is they have got to run the ball three downs. obviously they want to get a first down but they cannot allow the clock to be stopped by an incomplete pass. >> charles: michigan state will use their time outs. use one here and use another one on third down if they get the stop. >> charles: how big is the possession rather than give the ball back to kirk cousins with decent field position. >> absolutely huge, charles. this is what wisconsin does and what they are made for, guys, is this time right now, pound the rock. >> charles: i think they get into a tough spot with that quarterback and they might trust h him in order to keep
possession. >> gus: cousins wanting to get one more shot at it. the defense has to step up for him, though. second and six. dropped. nice tackle by ellsworth and denicos allen. third down coming up. but you never roll the dice on your truck. so go with the sure thing, ford f-150. jd power and associates just gave f-150 their highest award for initial quality. add to that the best mix of torque and fuel economy you get with its ecoboost engine, and you're money, baby. this is the future. this is the ford f-150.
>> kimberly: welcome back. third down five at the 24 for. >> gus: welcome back. coach brewster, quickly, what do you run if you are the badgers? >> they can run the ball inside but russell wilson right here a hard run fake and have him boot leg, keep the ball out the backdoor. i like that call right here. >> charles: possession is so key right now. a lot of time on the clock even if they trained the time out. this is a big one for wisconsin. i wouldn't doubt they would throw the ball here to try and pick it up. >> gus: third down and five. ewing. and ball in the backfield. wilson hands it to ball. ball will not get it. trenton robinson. robinson stopping it and that will force the badgers to punt it with 2:24 and counting. >> charles: that is pat narduzzi the defensive coordinator who normally works
out of the box. he came down to the field for the last crucial series. his offense is going to get the football back with a little less than two minutes to go in the game. >> brad nortman has been terrific punting the ball for wisconsin. he has been getting great hang time. keshawn martin has had to fair catch the ball a number of times tonight. he gets it up. for the line drive. and a flag. martin to the sideline. martin. martin goes down inside the five but a flag on the punt. wow! >> charles: and it looks -- and it looks like they got to the punter and if wisconsin gets the ball back, michigan state is out of time-outs. >> referee: running into the kicker, number 9, defense, five yard penalty.
the result, first down. >> gus: , frankly i'm a little surprised they came after it so hard because that is a nice job by nortman. let me tell you this is a nice job by him because he leaves a leg up there. as the punter is caught and then he takes a nice block but i don't think the official had any choice but to make the call. he comes through the body of him pretty well. nice acting job but that is what you are taught to do as a punter. but lewis should not be in the vicinity to have to make that call. >> gus: oh, charles. >> charles: he should not have been anywhere in any form close enough to him to force the officials to make the call. they had to make that one. >> gus: no time-outs for michigan state. wilson takes the knee. the wisconsin badgers behind this young man russell wilson are 1:20 away from winning the
inaugural big ten championship game. coming up after the game, stay tuned for the at&t post game show. we will wrap up with the presentation of the big ten championship trophy along with highlights and analysis from tonight's game. and wilson. comeback kid tonight. the usaa is a proud supporter of our men and women in uniform like badgers life greg are you see who served four tours of duty in iraq. >> charles: he ended up playing in the last game of the year against penn state, not in uniform today. but got a chance to play and this is a tough way for this game to end. great victortry for wisconsin but a tough way for it to go down for michigan state.
in that situation normally you play punt safe and get the football and try and run it downfield with the offense. >> gus: congratulations to the wisconsin badgers, favored by nine. the badgers win 42-39 to win the inaugural big ten conference championship game and wisconsin heads to pasadena to take on oregon in the rose bowl. ♪

wilson and what he meant to this football team coming in here being a leader on offense and leading you guys to a big ten championship? >> russell has been good for us. that is an understatement. everybody knows how good of a player he is but for what he meant to the team and the inside the guys in the locker room he has been a leader since day one and we love russell and we are glad he is a badger. >> 42-29 the final. wisconsin comes back to win it. coming up after a commercial break, the presentation of the big ten championship trophy. ok look, when gas prices jump... you still gotta work. so suddenly you're cutting back on everything from family vacations to cell phone minutes. well here's a thought - how bout cuttin' back on gas?

win the game. >> dhani: the person you really want to talk about is duckworth. how he was able to play this game. who would have thought he would have made as many plays as he did as far as russell wilson connecting to the passers and all of a sudden montee ball and what he is able to bring to the table. again, russell wilson out of the pocket. deep pass. and who goes up and gets it? jeff duckworth. in the midst of two defenders and now montee ball rumbling into the endzone. a fantastic job. talk about russell wilson and what he is able to bring to the table and his ability to move his feet incredible. >> one of the things that was interesting at the beginning of the game while he was warming up russell wilson came out and made the throw that he made to duckworth over and over again. we were marveling at how accurate he was and how far he could throw the ball with ease on the move. look what happens. >> talked about the heros in the game and talked about duckworth.
remember, he replaced nick toon. he went out with a shoulder injury. and he comes out with the big play. >> you said earlier what did nick toon do with russell wilson. asked him if he could throw the ball and hit the crossbar. he looked at him and said you are our quarterback. and today he got the job done. >> heart break for the many spartan fans out there. michigan state played a great game. check in with tim brewster who is standing by with coach mark dantonio. >> here with coach mark dantonio. i know it was an extremely tough loss. great momentum going in the second quarter. what happened in the second half? >> i think in the second half they sort of seized the momentum a little bit and we came back. i thought we took control of the game again, we were up by eight or so. pretty much what i said at , the loss plays byhe loose
wilson. throws it up and makes a play. if we got that one stopped we have the ball with four minutes to go and up by i guess five or so. difficult. in the last, you know, the last play of the game was difficult to stomach the way it all went down. we had to go after the block. he was clean to the block. i don't know if he touched the guy or not. keyshawn brings it back the whole way. you don't expect that but it happened. great football game. i thought pretty much where we talked about all along. both teams showed a great amount of maturity as football teams bouncing back and continuing to play. they got moxie and they got toughness. >> gus: coach, talk about your team and the success of this season. this senior class obviously you have got one more game to go play. >> we have a great senior class. we won a lot of football games. i don't know whether we will go to a bcs game or not. we certainly i think are one of the two best teams in the conference but there is for

school. a ruse he used at other churches on the same day. >> his routine seems to be gaping the confidence by going to the place under the ruse that he's a parent and allowed in at a busy time of the day and uses their distraction to take things. >> reporter: the three other churches, chevy chase baptist, chevy chase presbyterian and blessed sacrament all have the suspect's picture posted in their buildings and they're on the lookout for the church band it with the silver cruisie fix and grinch-like -- crufix and grinch-like intensions. >> this guy is despicable and doing this into the holiday season. he's done the same thing or attempted it at three additional churches in the chevy chase area. we want to put the grab on him. >> reporter: the chief can't say for certain if anything was taken at the three churches over the d.c. line but does not think the thief is an amateur and will continue the crime spree until he's caught. if you recognize him or know
anything about him, call the chevy chase village police department. audrey barnes, fox 5 news. herman cain has all but officially dropped out of the race for president. he announced he's suspending the campaign. he appeared with his wife gloria days after the allegations of a 13-year affair with another atlanta woman named ginger white. between that and four accusation of sexual harassment, she said it was too much of a burden on his campaign and the people he loved. >> i am suspending my presidential campaign because of the continued distraction, the continued hurt caused on me and my family. not because we are not fighters. >> cain still denies wrongdoing
with any of the women and said he will eventually endorse a candidate. joining me to discuss what this means for between 12 is republican strategist jack burtman and welcome to the show. thank you for being here. >> my pleasure. thank you for having us. >> jack, let's go to you. suspended campaign is a prelude to jumping out of the race altogether. what does it mean for cain? does he support someone else at this point when who -- and who benefits from it? >> not quite. he will announce that in a month or so. i have been to thousands of political rallies and had is the strangest thing i saw. the confity and banners and the rousing speech and at the end, said i'm suspending campaign. 25 years of politics, i have never seen anything stranger than today. he field me. your own john roberts said it best. he said this will be cruel and unusual punishment if he drops out for the fans and viewers. who benefits? two people. cain is a social conservative. >> uh-huh.
>> i think rick santorum benefits and michele bachmann. they're two social conservatives and two who need help now. >> on the democratic side, how does this play out, brandon? >> i think it became a joke, his cappedacy at the end and i hate to say that and people saw him go. john stewart and david letterman. he shouldn't have been running for president. and i just think that, you know n terms of the who benefits, maybe it's -- and newt gingrich at this point. there is a poll out tonight in iowa saying that gingrich is leading in iowa with ron paul second and mitt romney third. the gingrich is the anti-romney and, therefore, i think he benefits from it. >> let me offer you one thing. >> uh-huh. >> everyone's piling on herman cain. this business of three or four people come out, not to beat a dead horse, but three, four people come out and make unfounded accusations and say where there is smoke there is fire. i think it's fundamentally unfair. i have been the victim of
internet rumors and so many people on television have. >> and you would -- cain didn't help his cause with the responses to the accusations? >> and there is some incold fronty in his responses and i am not here to represent cain or not, but it's like if we walk out on wisconsin avenue and two guys on the street come up to me and say hey, i saw mitt romney sell drugs two days ago. does that mean we believe them? does it say because two people said it, there must be something to it. i think our standards have fallen in journalism. >> and there -- and can argue about the accusations of the harassment and affair, that is what did him in, but if you watch his campaign, he was not prepared to be president. look at the question on libya where he paused for an eternity and so many questions where he didn't know how to answer them. >> do you think when it's said and done, does the guy have a political future? i will give you that first, brendan and then you can
answer, jack. >> may be so. to be honest, i think he's a joke and will be hard for him to recover from this. >> and i agree on that. i would have advised him strongly not to quit today. he can't be anything and can't run again. there is no future. >> and you think anyone he does endorse, will that person want the endorsement or is it damage something. >> he has a bloc of support. i am sure they will take the encoarsement and at some point -- endorsement, at some point next year, they will do a quick rally with cain in georgia and take the endorsement. i don't think that it will have much impact. >> i agree. there is not much of anm pact on that at all. >> we're going to leave it at that and with herman cain, i am sure we have not heard the last of that. >> nine-9-9. >> thank you very much for coming in tonight. >> thank you. >> thank you. and meanwhile, the remaining gop presidential caat
