UW's Ball sets NCAA rush TDs mark
By Adam Rittenberg
INDIANAPOLIS -- Another game, another NCAA record for Wisconsin senior running back Montee Ball.
After setting the NCAA career total touchdowns record last week at Penn State, Ball broke Travis Prentice's record for career rushing touchdowns with his 74th on a 16-yard dash and leap to the pylon in the second quarter of the Big Ten championship game against Nebraska.
If Ball scores in the second half, he'll tie Prentice's record for career games with multiple touchdowns (25).
Ball has 14 carries for 111 yards and a touchdown in the first half, as Wisconsin leads 42-10.
