Michigan State Vs. Wisconsin Score: Montee Ball's Third Touchdown Cuts Spartans' Lead To 36-34 In Big Ten Championship Game

B.J. Cunningham has three touchdowns for the Michigan State Spartans in the Big Ten Championship Game, and now Montee Ball has three touchdowns for the Wisconsin Badgers

Wisconsin started with the ball in the fourth quarter already at the Michigan State 37 yard line and immediately picked up 25 yards on two Russel Wilson passing plays. They gained another 10 yards thanks to a Spartans' pass interference, putting them at the Spartans' two yard line. After Ball got stuffed for a three yard loss on first down, Wisconsin went to Ball on a screen pass, which he took in for the score to cut MSU's lead to 36-34.

Wisconsin opted to go for two with over 13 minutes left in the fourth quarter, but failed to convert. Russel Wilson's pass attempt was tipped by Jerel Worthy, preventing an easy grab in the end zone. 

Wilson is 14-for-20 passing with 134 yards and three touchdowns. Ball has been shut down on the ground since recording over 100 yards in the first quarter, but he has three touchdowns and nearly 150 all-purpose yards.
