Mic'd Mondays: Ball & Jenkins

Monday night, we interviewed two of Week 5′s biggest stars, Wisconsin’s Montee Ball (151 yards, 4 TDs) and Illinois’ A.J. Jenkins (12 rec., 268 yards, 3 TDs). “The Big Ten Pulse” sat down with Ball, who’s scored at least two touchdowns in his last nine regular-season games and leads the nation with 14 touchdowns. What’s it like for Ball, not to mention sidekick James White, to run behind Wisconsin’s massive offensive line? “We feel really comfortable in the huddle, and once the play starts, we feel real comfortable behind those big guys,” Ball told our crew. Jenkins joined “Big Ten Breakdown,” and he appropriately broke down his 33-yard touchdown reception that helped spark Illinois’ rally against Northwestern. Watch the interview in this post.

The booster who paid the players was dissociated from the program. Read the full AP recap.
