Wisconsin's Ball moves past Williams on TD list

Published:

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Wisconsin running back Montee Ball has passed 1998 Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams for second place on the career touchdown list.

Ball now has 76 career scores. Williams finished his career at Texas with 75. Travis Prentice of Miami (Ohio) holds the Football Bowl Subdivision record with 78 scores.

And the Badgers senior wasted no time getting started Saturday at Indiana.

On third-and-2 in the first quarter, Ball rushed 21 yards up the middle and on the next play, turned the corner and jogged in for a 10-yard TD run, No. 75, to give the Badgers a 7-0 lead.

He did it again on the opening possession of the Badgers opening possession of the second half, moving into second with a 1-yard plunge to make it 31-7.
