Michigan State Vs. Wisconsin Score: Montee Ball Gives Badgers 14-7 Lead In Big Ten Championship Game

The Wisconsin Badgers called the Michigan State Spartans' touchdown and raised them another. Following Edwin Baker's touchdown run to put the Spartans on the scoreboard and tie the game at 7-7, the Badgers re-took the lead on seven plays behind the play of Montee Ball

And Montee Ball did it all really. After starting the drive with 19 yards on three carries, Ball took his fourth handoff and opted to throw it instead of running for more yards. He completed the pass to his quarterback Russel Wilson for 32 yards, setting up the Badgers at the Spartans' nine yard line. Ball scored two runs later on a second-and-goal from the six. 

The touchdown was Ball's 35th of the season, leaving him just four shy of Barry Sanders' record now. With still four minutes remaining in the quarter, he has 11 carries, 113 all-purpose yards and a touchdown. 

It's the Spartans' turn now...
