A dual threat at running back, Ball found the end zone 38 times this season for the Badgers and he's got the Rose Bowl still ahead of him. His 32 rushing touchdowns rank him first in the nation and so do his 1,759 rushing yards (find all of Ball's season's stats are over here). Our five selected photos are below with a poll at the bottom.
Also on tonight's Big Ten Football Report, we examine the impact of Saturday's wide-open thriller of a Big Ten Football Championship game and break down the Big Ten's chances for bowl domination this postseason. Also, our panel reveals their selections for top games, matchups and players this bowl season.
The winner of the Heisman Trophy is announced this Saturday at 8 p.m. ET.
