Montee Ball breaks FBS record for most career touchdowns

Big 10 Championship Game - Wisconsin v Michigan State Getty Images

Much of the focus on the game between Wisconsin and Penn State this afternoon will be on the Nittany Lions’ senior class because of the turbulent past year with the Jerry Sandusky scandal and subsequent NCAA sanctions. But Wisconsin running back Montee Ball wasn’t going to allow all the attention to be on one team.

Ball broke the Division 1-A record for most touchdowns in a college career (79) today with a 17-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. The record was previously held by Travis Prentice of Miami (Ohio).

Congratulations to Ball, who has nearly 1,500 yards on the season and 18 rushing touchdowns.

Penn State would go on to win the game, however, 24-21.

    And like all previous Wisconsin running backs, he’ll be a bust at the next level.

    Don’t care, FIRE BEILAMA! Useless, offense sucks, back up qb(s) a joke, defense late in games ALWAYS chokes, and worst special teams in America.

    Hey Penn State, congrads, looks like you’ll win. Enjoy it the rest of the season. You know, while Bucky is still playing. And you’re at home because of the Pedophile cover up @Penn State. “We Are…Not Bowling This Year…We Are…Not Bowling This Year.

    Quit being a douche bucky. I hate Brett Bielema.

    @onbucky you make Wisconsin fans look bad .. though it must be satisfying being the 3rd best team in the division and only going to the championship because of sanctions

    OSU fan….congratulations to Ball on getting the record. A week after visiting Columbus.

    Respect to PSU, Bill O’Brien and the Nittany Lion seniors for their efforts this year.

    Bert Bielma…..keep up the great work. Seriously. Well done Bert.
