MADISON, Wis. Well, at least Wisconsin's football team knows how to make things interesting in defeat.
Ohio State edged Wisconsin, 21-14, in overtime Saturday afternoon at Camp Randall Stadium, marking the Badgers' second straight overtime loss at home this season. The margin actually represents Wisconsin's most lopsided loss of the year because the Badgers had lost their three other games by three points apiece.
The Badgers showed some resolve in battling back to tie the game in regulation with eight seconds remaining, but it wasn't enough. And the feeling among players was bittersweet.
Wisconsin (7-4, 4-3 in the Big Ten) won't win the Leaders Division, but it will play in the Big Ten championship on Dec. 1 as a result of NCAA sanctions to Ohio State (11-0, 7-0) and Penn State (7-4, 5-2).

MADISON, Wis. Wisconsin senior running back Montee Ball has made history, tying the all-time NCAA FBS career touchdown record.
Ball scored his 78th career touchdown Saturday on a 7-yard run up the middle with 7:30 remaining in the second quarter against Ohio State at Camp Randall Stadium to trim Wisconsin's deficit to 14-7. He joins Travis Prentice from Miami (Ohio) atop the...
Wisconsin running back Montee Ball has tied the major college career touchdown record, scoring on a 7-yard run against No. 6 Ohio State on Saturday.
It was the 78th touchdown of Ball's career, matching the mark set by Travis Prentice of Miami (Ohio) in 1999. Ball already has a share of the FBS single-season touchdown record, matching Barry Sanders' long-standing mark of...
MADISON, Wis. For the second straight year, Wisconsin senior running back Montee Ball has been named one of three finalists for the Doak Walker Award, given to the top running back in college football.
Ball joins Oregon's Kenjon Barner and UCLA's Jonathan Franklin as finalists this year. He is the third Wisconsin player to be named a Doak Walker Award finalist, along with...
Maybe Danny O'Brien was on to something. Not even a full year after the quarterback decided to transfer from Maryland to Wisconsin, the Terrapins have announced they will leave the ACC for the big paydays to come in the Big Ten. On Monday the school was officially introduced by Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany as the conference's 13th member, and a day later Rutgers became...
With all the news of conference expansion a little nugget of football recruiting has gotten lost in the shuffle, Wisconsin has added added two more recruits to their 2013 class. With these two additions it's going to be really interesting to see if anyone else comes on board as the numbers are getting very stretched for who they can take in this class.
The first of those...
Stanford hosted Oregon State last week, and the game resulted in the crew’s second push of the year. I added a third push when Virginia benefited from one of the worst phantom pass interference calls in recent memory against Miami. Ties are no fun, and with a push, no one wins. So here’s hoping that week 12 will be a bit more definitive. I’ve often wondered why all...
Just when we thought the National Championship picture was coming into focus, the top two teams in the nation are knocked from atop the standings. Kansas State was steamrolled by an unexpectedly good Baylor team, and once that game went final Notre Dame fans everywhere went crazy. Alabama fans had to wait a bit longer for their celebration; Stanford didn’t beat Oregon until...

Champs of the Week:1. Montel Harris, RB, Temple- 351 rushing yards, 7 TD’sAfter last week’s injury, it looked like a very good possibility that Harris wouldn’t even play in the game against Army. Hope that didn’t deter anyone from playing him this week! Harris finished the game with 351 yards rushing and seven (yes, seven!) touchdowns in the win over Army. Both numbers were...
It's a pretty safe assumption that when you turn on your TV set for Wisconsin vs. Ohio State your about to see something crazy and once again these two delivered as Ohio State remained unbeaten with a 21-14 overtime victory. All this result told us is that Ohio State is good, good enough to outlast the best efforts of their opponents and in the end isn't the W all that matters...

As painful as it was to sit back and watch Wisconsin lose 21-14 in overtime to hated rivals Ohio State yesterday, it was even more painful to put myself through watching it a 2nd time on the good ole DVR. After watching things over once again there's only one conclusion that you can come to: Coming so close, yet losing...
The Wisconsin Badgers held Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller to his worst game of the season, but it wasn’t quite enough with the Buckeyes prevailing 21-14 in overtime at Camp Randall.
It was the first time the Badgers (7-4, 4-3) have played in multiple overtime games since the 2000 season and their second straight loss at home.
What It Means: Defensively the Badgers were...
