EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald feels like he has been living through one of those Choose Your Own Adventure stories this season.He sees things going as planned during the week. Things get dicey once the weekend hits -- and this is a big one.The Wildcats become eligible for a bowl if they beat Illinois in Saturdays season finale.I think that groups (the seniors) given everything theyve got, Fitzgerald said. I think weve got some other guys that are older that have given it everything weve got. And then I think our younger guys, its been interesting. Its definitely been a baptism under fire. Youve seen some flashes or what I think were going to see in the future. And then youve seen obviously what were going to have to do regardless of the outcome starting on Monday.The question is: Will Northwestern (5-6, 4-4 Big Ten) be preparing for a bowl -- or for next year?The Wildcats were hoping a 10-3 record in 2015 would be more of a launching point after back-to-back 5-7 seasons. But the results this year are mixed.Northwestern regrouped after opening with losses at home to Western Michigan and FCS member Illinois State, winning four of the next five. But theyve dropped three of four since then, with a 29-12 loss at Minnesota last week. Now they meet their in-state rival, with Illinois (3-8, 2-6 Big Ten) trying to play the spoiler and end coach Lovie Smith s first season on a strong note.It would do quite a bit, Smith said. Just the morale, of course. And we talk a lot about finishing. You remember the last thing that you do, simple as that.Here are some things to look for when Northwestern and Illinois meet:HOMECOMING ... SORT OFSaturdays game will be Smiths first in the Chicago area in just over two years.The last time the former NFL coach led a team there was Nov. 23, 2014, when his Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost to the Bears at Soldier Field, 21-13. The Bears scored 21 unanswered points in the third quarter, spoiling his return to Soldier Field. Smith coached Chicago to three playoff appearances in nine seasons and led the 2006 team to the Super Bowl before being fired following the 2012 season.CATCHING CARRNorthwesterns Austin Carr was selected one of three finalists for the Biletnikoff Award given to the countrys best receiver along with Oklahomas Dede Westbrook and East Carolinas Zay Jones.A former walk-on, Carr leads the Big Ten in receptions (80), yards receiving (1,170) and touchdowns (12), and he ranks in the top 10 nationally in all three categories. He had five catches for 68 yards last week but left the field feeling woozy from a hit by Minnesota safety Duke McGhee.RUNNING LOWThe limited offensive success Illinois has had this season has been mostly on the ground, driven by the running of Kendrick Foster and Reggie Corbin . Foster has 721 yards on the season, 65.6 a game, while Corbin has a total of 453 yards and is averaging 41.2. But opposing defenses are increasingly focused on stopping the two, and in the teams three losses in its last four games, it has worked. In the blowout losses to Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa, Foster averaged 56.7 yards a game and Corbin dropped well off his earlier pace to 11.7 a game.1,000-YARD BARRIERWith top rusher Foster at 721 yards and top receiver Malik Turner with 545 yards, Illinois probably will finish the season without either a 1,000-yard back or receiver. It would be the fourth time that has happened since 2011, when A.J Jenkins had 1,276 receiving yards. The only exception since then has been Mike Dudeks 1,038-yard receiving season in 2014. The last Illini running back to break the 1,000-yard mark was Mikel Leshoure in 2010 with 1,697 yards.RECORD IN REACHClayton Thorson has a chance to set Northwesterns record for touchdown passes in a season. He is tied for second with Zak Kustok with 20 and needs one to match the mark set by Brett Basanez in 2005.Thorson ranks third in the Big Ten in yards passing (2,847), yards per game (258.8) and TD throws.---For more AP college football: http://www.collegefootball.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-Top25 Nike Air Max Tailwind 4 Australia . "It was nerve-wracking, but we pulled through," said Collaros, who threw four touchdown passes to lead the Toronto Argonauts (8-4) to a 33-27 win over the Calgary Stampeders (9-3) in front of 28,781 fans at McMahon Stadium.

Aduriz headed home Markel Susaetas cross in the sixth minute to open the scoring at San Mames Stadium. He bettered that with a long-range blast that went in off the goal frame in the 18th, and converted a penalty in the 72nd after Diego Mainz was sent off for fouling Aduriz with only the goalkeeper to beat. Nike Air Max 93 Australia .Y. -- Sabres defenceman Tyler Myers had no intention of changing his hard-hitting style before taking part in a disciplinary hearing for his illegal check to New Jersey forward Dainius Zubrus head.
