MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin running back Montee Ball has tied the major college career touchdown record, scoring on a 7-yard run against No. 6 Ohio State on Saturday.
It was the 78th touchdown of Ball's career, matching the mark set by Travis Prentice of Miami (Ohio) in 1999. Ball already has a share of the FBS single-season touchdown record, matching Barry Sanders' long-standing mark of 39 last year.
Taking a handoff from Curt Phillips, Ball ran hard up the middle. He cut to the left and banged off Ohio State safety Christian Bryant before tumbling into the end zone and setting off raucous cheers at Camp Randall.
Ball's TD cut Wisconsin's deficit in half, leaving the Buckeyes ahead 14-7.
