EAGAN, Minn. — Adam Thielen has already set all kinds of records this year for Minnesota, with a few of the NFL’s all-time single-season marks still within reach. He couldn’t do it without Stefon Diggs, though. This dominant wide receiver duo is a major reason why the Vikings remain in the mix with the NFC’s top contenders despite some rough spots in the first half of the season. By Pro Football Writer Dave Campbell. UPCOMING: 800 words, by 5 p.m. EDT. For weekend use.
CHICAGO — Northwestern can clinch the Big Ten West championship and its first appearance in the conference title game simply by winning two of its final three games. The Wildcats would also secure a spot Saturday with a victory at Iowa plus losses by Wisconsin at Penn State and Purdue at Minnesota. It’s quite a position for a team that wasn’t widely considered a favorite to win its division, though Northwestern is hardly the only surprise in the Big Ten. By Andrew Seligman.

MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota women’s basketball team has sold out the home opener, a clear sign of the buzz surrounding the program following the hire of the beloved Lindsay Whalen as head coach. By Dave Campbell. UPCOMING: 500 words, by 5 p.m. EDT.
