Wisconsin Drills Michigan Defense For 354 Rush Yards In Win

Ann Arbor, MI (Sports Network) – James White and Montee Ball combined for an astounding 354 rushing yards with six touchdowns, as sixth-ranked Wisconsin pounded out a 48-28 victory over Michigan at the Big House.

White finished with 181 yards and two scores on 23 carries, while Ball added 173 yards with four touchdowns on 29 attempts for Wisconsin (10-1, 6-1 Big Ten), which has won six straight since a conference-opening loss to Michigan State and remained firmly in the hunt for the Big Ten title. The Badgers will host Northwestern next Saturday with a win guaranteeing them at least a share of the conference crown.

Scott Tolzien completed 14-of-15 passes for 201 yards for the Badgers, who attempted just one pass in the second half, resulting in an interception. Wisconsin finished with 558 yards of offense, including 357 on the ground.

Denard Robinson ran for 121 yards with two touchdowns and threw for 239 yards with a pair of scores for Michigan (7-4, 3-4), which closed out its home schedule and will visit Ohio State for its traditional season-finale next week. Robinson set the NCAA single-season record for rushing yards by a quarterback, eclipsing the previous mark of 1,494 set by Beau Morgan of Air Force in 1996.
