Houston Texans defensive linemen J.J. Watt and Devon Still had a bet on the Big Ten Championship game between their alma-maters. Watt paid up on Friday.
The Wisconsin Badgers run deep in the blood of Houston Texans star J.J. Watt. Watt dominated throughout his time in Madison before obviously wreaking havoc on the NFL.

Unfortunately for both Watt, Texans fans, and general fans of great football, the defensive stud rocking Penn State gear is about all we’ve seen of him in the 2016 season. He’s been out virtually since the start of training camp and won’t play in Houston’s final four games of the year. But at least we’ll have this moment that surfaced in his absence from the field.
