Week 13 Previews: Plenty at stake this weekend

The final week of the regular season is upon us and there is still a lot is on the line. Nebraska needs a win at Iowa to clinch the Legends Division crown on Friday. On Saturday, Ohio State is trying to punctuate a 12-0 season with a triumph over Michigan. How sweet would that be for Buckeye fans? Of course, the Wolverines would love to trash that Buckeye dream and win the Legends, and they can do just that with a victory over Ohio State and loss by Nebraska. Purdue and Michigan State need wins to become bowl eligible. And Wisconsin

Dienhart: Go ahead and book that trip to Indy

Wisconsin sent a loud message today. Did you hear it? Surely you did. I know it resonated with me. The Badgers’ emphatic 38-14 win at Purdue clearly marks Wisconsin as the team in the driver’s seat to earn the Leaders Division spot in the Big Ten title game for a second season in a row. In fact, the Badgers looked like they may have a shot to develop into the top team in the Big Ten this season. And that’s saying a lot when you consider where this program was about a month ago. Sure, Wisconsin’s cause is helped by

Ball sets record, lifts Wisconsin past Purdue

Montee Ball ran for a career-high 247 yards and scored three touchdowns to help Wisconsin beat Purdue 38-14 on Saturday afternoon. James White added 124 yards rushing for the Badgers (5-2, 2-1 Big Ten), who outgained Purdue 645 yards to 252. The Badgers pounded out 467 yards rushing in the rain.

Montee Ball ties, breaks Big Ten TD record

Wisconsin running back Montee Ball broke the Big Ten record for most career touchdowns Saturday at Purdue. Ball broke the record, previously held by former Wisconsin standout Ron Dayne, on his third touchdown run of the game. It came on three-yard run, his shortest scoring scamper of the day. The senior tied Dayne’s record on a career-long 67-yard run. Watch the record-breaking run here and see him tie the record in this post. Ball did a ton of damage on his way to breaking the record, too, finishing the game with a career-high 247 rushing yards. The fact Ball had

3rd quarter recap: Wisconsin 24, Purdue 7

Wisconsin gained 113 yards on the ground in the third, and the Badgers now lead 24-7. Wisconsin stifled Purdue’s offense, giving up just -6 total yards in the quarter. The Badgers have scored 24 unanswered points. Wisconsin expanded its lead to 24-7 thanks to a two-play, 72-yard drive that ended when Montee Ball pounded in a 67-yard touchdown run. The run was the longest of Ball’s career and it tied him for the most touchdowns in Big Ten history (71).

1st quarter recap: Wisconsin 7, Purdue 7

Wisconsin’s Jacob Pedersen caught a 21-yard touchdown pass in the quarter, and the two teams are tied 7-7 at the end of the first. Purdue scored when Caleb TerBush turned a quarterback sneak into a one-yard touchdown run to finish off a two-play, 53-yard drive, giving the Boilermakers the game’s first lead. Purdue’s drive was highlighted by TerBush’s 52-yard pass. The Badgers tied the score at seven apiece after Joel Stave found Pedersen open for a 21-yard touchdown pass to cap off a five-play, 75-yard drive.

Dienhart: Q&A with Wisconsin WR Jared Abbrederis

The Wisconsin offense has had its ups and downs this season. It’s no secret. Wideout Jared Abbrederis knows it. But the unit may be coming to life after a solid effort in a 31-14 victory vs. Illinois last week that saw the Badgers notch 427 yards. Abbrederis and his offensive counterparts will do their part to keep the offense moving forward with a big game at Purdue this Saturday that will go a long way toward determining pecking order in the Leaders Division. The junior has 27 catches for 516 yards and a Big Ten-high five touchdowns—all team-leading totals for
