Michigan State Vs. Wisconsin Score: Turnover Leads To Montee Ball's Second Touchdown, 21-7 Badgers Lead In Big Ten Championship Game

Following Montee Ball's 35th touchdown of the season to give the Wisconsin Badgers a 14-7 lead in the Big Ten Championship Game, the Michigan State Spartans fumbled away the ensuing kickoff, leading to another Montee Ball touchdown, his 36th of the season.

Nick Hill took the return for 19 yards, but fumbled when he was hit by Badgers' Conor O'Neill and it was recovered by Jacob Pedersen at the Spartans' 24 yard line. Two Montee Ball runs later, the Badgers are rocking a two-score first quarter lead. 

Montee Ball now has 105 yards rushing on 13 carries and two touchdowns. He is also 1-for-1 passing for 32 yards. 

Don't count out the Spartans, though -- they were down two scores back in October and wound up coming back to win. They are currently driving and in Wisconsin territory with the second quarter set to begin. Kirk Cousins is 3-for-3 passing for 43 yards and Le'Veon Bell has 41 yards on four carries.
