LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Wisconsin's Montee Ball has won the Doak Walker Award, given to the nation's outstanding running back.
The senior was honored on Thursday night at the Home Depot College Football Awards show at Disney World. He beat out fellow finalists Kenjon Barner from Oregon and UCLA's Johnathan Franklin from UCLA.
Ball rushed for 21 touchdowns and 1,730 yards this season to lead an offense that ranked 12th in the nation in rushing yards per game with 237.8.
He helped propel the Badgers to a 70-31 win over Nebraska in the Big Ten title game, earning a Rose Bowl berth.
Wisconsin will be the first five-loss team to play in the Rose Bowl and is the first school to represent the conference in three consecutive Rose Bowls since Michigan.
