Week 12 Player Rankings: Ball moves on up

It’s time for my latest Big Ten Player Rankings. Montee Ball moved up a couple spots following his incredible effort at Indiana, and there’s a new name making the list on the defensive side. Who is it? Find out in this post. Remember, this feature ranks the Big Ten’s top six offensive and defensive players. So, consider offense the Legends Division and the defense the Leaders Division, or vice versa. [RELATED: Tom Dienhart’s Week 12 Power Rankings ] OFFENSE 1.

Week 12 Power Rankings: Badgers ascend after rout

The top of the power rankings didn’t get shaken up, but Wisconsin made a move from No. 6 to No. 4 following its emphatic victory at Indiana that clinched the Leaders Division’s spot in the Big Ten championship game.

How did we do? Week 11 picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 12, it’s time to review how BTN.com fans, Tom Dienhart and yours truly did with our Week 11 predictions. Dienhart and BTN.com fans both went 4-1 to remain tied atop the standings, while I went 3-2 to fall four back.

Dienhart: Badgers dash Hoosiers dreams in rout

That “pop” you just heard was Indiana’s Rose Bowl dreams. Oh, it was a LONG shot. We all knew it. But it was fun while it lasted, as the Hoosiers came into today controlling their own destiny in a Leaders Division title chase that would land them in the Big Ten title game with a chance to advance to Pasadena. That caused America—or at least the Midwest—to rub its eyes in disbelief. But it was true. Well, Wisconsin didn’t just crush those dreams—it smashed them to smithereens in a 62-14 victory that clinched a second consecutive spot in the Big

Wisconsin runs all over Indiana, 62-14

Montee Ball ran for 198 yards and three touchdowns, James White scored on runs of 69 and 50 yards, and Wisconsin set a school rushing record Saturday with 564 yards in a 62-14 rout at Indiana. The Badgers (7-3, 4-2) will now have a chance to claim their third straight Big Ten crown after clinching a spot in the league’s title game. Ball also moved past 1998 Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams and into second place on the FBS career list. He has 77 career TDs, trailing only Travis Prentice of Miami (Ohio) who had 78.

3rd quarter recap: Wisconsin 41, Indiana 7

Wisconsin ran for 173 yards in the quarter, and the Badgers now lead 41-7. Wisconsin, which has scored 24 straight points, expanded its lead to 31-7 thanks to a 10-play, 75-yard drive that ended when Montee Ball pounded in a one-yard touchdown run. Wisconsin went to the air just two times during that series. The Badgers opened up the lead, 38-7, after Ball ran 49 yards to paydirt to end a two-play, 60-yard drive. Wisconsin added to its advantage when Kyle French made a 37-yard field goal, the last of a seven-play, 50-yard drive to give the Badgers the lead,

2nd quarter recap: Wisconsin 24, Indiana 7

Thanks to a mean rushing attack, Wisconsin leads Indiana, 24-7, after the second quarter. The Badgers rushed for 88 yards in the quarter, and both Montee Ball (106 yards) and James White (103) have eclipsed the 100-yard plateau. Meanwhile, the Badgers held Indiana to just 14 rushing yards in the quarter. Wisconsin opened up the lead, 17-0, after marching down the field for a seven-play, 60-yard drive that ended when Kyle French kicked a 24-yard field goal. The Hoosiers got on the board when Cameron Coffman found Ted Bolser on a six-yard touchdown pass to cap a 69-yard drive. The

1st quarter recap: Wisconsin 14, Indiana 0

Wisconsin picked up 177 yards on the ground game during the first quarter, and the Badgers lead 14-0. Wisconsin’s defense shut down Indiana’s aerial attack in the quarter, holding the Hoosiers to 30 passing yards. The Badgers got on the scoreboard first, rattling off an eight-play, 69-yard drive that ended in a score when Montee Ball ran 10 yards to paydirt. The score tied Ball with Ricky Williams on the career TD list. The Badgers added to their advantage when Curt Phillips threw a two-yard touchdown pass to Sam Arneson, putting a bow on an eight-play, 69-yard drive to give

Big Ten links: Badgers' QB picture clears up

Happy Thursday to you, Big Ten Nation! It certainly must be a happy one for Wisconsin’s Curt Phillips, who according to reports will be the quarterback for Wisconsin at Indiana. Read about that and other Big Ten news in my daily links. I’ll be honest: I’m shocked about Phillips. I thought Bret Bielema would opt for the more proven and experienced Danny O’Brien. But Philips, a fifth-year senior who has overcome three knee injuries and didn’t play in 2010 and 2011, apparently will be the guy, says Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Philips is more of a run-first
