Michigan State Vs. Wisconsin Score: Russel Wilson's Touchdown Pass Gives Badgers 7-0 Lead In Big Ten Championship Game

Wisconsin started with the ball in the inaugural Big Ten Championship Game and marched right down the field on the nation's eleventh best ranked defense. 

After five runs for 53 yards from their stud running back Montee Ball, the passing game opened up nicely for Russel Wilson, who then found Nick Toon for 22 yards and a first down inside the Spartans' 10 yard line. On third-and-goal from the three yard line, Russel Wilson hit a wide open Jeff Duckworth for the first score ever in a Big Ten Championship Game to give the Badgers an early 7-0 lead on the Spartans. It was also Duckworth's first touchdown of the season. 

Montee Ball, who has 34 touchdowns (just five behind Barry Sanders for the FBS record), rushed for 53 yards on six carries. Russel Wilson was 3-for-3 for 28 yards and a touchdown pass. 

The Spartans will have their hands full if Wisconsin's offense is clicking like it was on the first possession -- of course, that's because it was flawless.
