It didn’t take long as the Wisconsin Badgers Montee Ball scored his 79th and record-breaking touchdown in the first quarter of UW’s season finale at Penn State.
Ball rushed 17 yards on a sweep to the right in which he tip-toed down the sideline and walked in for the historic score.
No single player in NCAA FBS history has scored more touchdowns than Ball has during his career at Wisconsin.
Montee surpassed Travis Prentice of Miami of Ohio who had 78 career touchdowns from 1997-2000. He now has 15 touchdowns in his last eight games.
Wisconsin really is the running back university as they also hold the all-time rushing record with Ron Dayne’s 6,397 yards.
