EVANSTON, Ill. Nike Odyssey React Uomo . -- Offenses are granted four downs in college football, so Western Michigan coach P.J. Fleck figured he might as well use them all.The Broncos going 4 for 4 on fourth down was a key in their upset of Northwestern on Saturday.We didnt come here to lay up. We came here to win a football game, Fleck said. I believe in this football team and I believe in our short-yardage system. It comes down to attitude, how and will, and I believe thats what we do well.Zach Terrell threw for 218 yards and a touchdown and Jamauri Bogan had a 1-yard touchdown run on fourth down in Western Michigans 22-21 victory.Terrell was 26 of 36 as Western Michigans offense controlled the play throughout and held the ball for 39 minutes.Justin Jackson had 124 yards rushing and three rushing touchdowns, including a 46-yarder, for Northwestern.Clayton Thorson completed 15 of 22 passes for 196 yards. His fumble at the goal line in the final minutes thwarted Northwesterns comeback attempt.I saw a lot of space, Thorson said. Could have scored, but even if I didnt, I should have gone down or something. Cant fumble on the 1.The outcome essentially came down to two close plays at each goal line in the final minutes. Bogans touchdown with 5:38 remaining gave the Broncos the lead. The play was reviewed because there was a question whether his knee was down before he crossed over. The call stood.Our fullback, Leo (Ekwoge), went in there and destroyed things, our offensive line played really well and God was with me and he helped me tuck my leg just a little bit more, Bogan said.On the ensuing possession, Northwestern drove down the field before Thorson was hit by linebacker Robert Spillane and fumbled. Davontae Ginwright recovered for the Broncos for the touchback before stepping out of bounds. The play was reviewed because Ginwright threw the ball back on the field -- it was recovered by Northwestern -- but it was ruled he stepped out before getting rid of the ball.Not to discredit Western Michigan, but when you play as poorly as we did, those calls, the football gods, they go against you. Wildcats coach Pat Fitzgerald said. You get what you earn, and thats what we deserve.Fleck was pumped, but was careful not to make too much of the win.How big is it? Its as big as the outside world makes it, he said. Inside our circle, its 1-0, and thats it.STRONG DEBUTWestern Michigan freshman kicker Butch Hampton converted three of four field goals with a long of 47. He missed his first attempt, hitting the crossbar from 50 yards out.How bout your first kick as a true freshman from 50? Fleck said. I think you saw what he could do.MENTOR-STUDENTAs a 35-year-old coach, its not surprising that Fleck looks up to Fitzgerald, who took over the Wildcats when he was 31.He is what I want to become, and thats a huge compliment to him because he does things the right way, Fleck said. He is one of my all-time mentors.THE TAKEAWAYWestern Michigan: The Broncos were picked as favorites to win the Mid-American Conference this season and they showed why. Terrell ended last season as the seventh-most efficient quarterback in the country and picked up right where he left off. Zach Terrell is the toughest football player Ive ever coached, Fleck said.Northwestern: The Wildcats tied a school record with 10 wins last season, but the opener showed they have a ways to go before they can think of achieving that type of production this season. For now, Jackson will be the workhorse on offense until Thorson and the young receiving corps work out the kinks. Defensively, the Wildcats struggled to get consistent pressure on Terrell and were regularly outmuscled on short-yardage plays.UP NEXTWestern Michigan: The Broncos host North Carolina Central on Saturday night.Northwestern: The Wildcats host Illinois State on Saturday in the second of four straight home games to start the season.

Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. http://www.airmax95scontate.it/air-max-180.html . "Trying to breathe," he said with a grin. Bernier stopped 42 of 43 shots on Monday night, including all 22 in a hectic middle frame, his heroic performance propelling the Leafs toward an undue point in their final game before the Christmas break. GREENSBORO, N.C. -- James Whitaker grabbed 15 rebounds to go with his 12 points and North Carolina A&T defeated Greensboro College 67-50 in a season opener on Friday night.Whitaker, who picked up his first career double-double, is one of only three returning players who were among the teams top 10 scorers last season. Junior college transfers Davaris McGowens and Eliel Gonzalez added 18 and 13 points, respectively. The teams leading scorer from last season at 15.4 points per game, Sam Hunt, scored 11.JJay Joyner is starting his first full season as the Aggies head coach after taking over for Cy Alexander, who resigned in January.

The Aggies led by two with 10 minutes to go before pulling away, with Gonzalez scoring all of his points in that final span.The Division-III Pride, who counted this game as an exhibition, were led by Alvin Cunningham Jr. with 13 points.
