His Badgers may have lost an exciting shootout BCS game to the Oregon Ducks, but Wisconsin QB Russell Wilson literally just completed the best season of quarterbacking in college football history. He entered the 98th Rose Bowl game with a passer rating of 191.6.

His performance today yielded a 193.9, giving him a 191.78 for the 2011 season.

I bring this up because Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III just finished the 2011 season (including the wild Alamo Bowl win) with a pass efficiency of 189.5, which broke the FBS (previously known as college football Division-1A) single season record formerly held by Hawaii’s Colt Brennan.

Earlier in the day, Wilson’s backfield mate Montee Ball tied the NCAA record for single season TDs. He, like Barry Sanders of Oklahoma State now have 38.
