Wisconsin running back Montee Ball tied the major-college career touchdown record with the 78th of his career Saturday in the Badgers' 21-14 loss to Ohio State in overtime in Madison, Wis. Ball scored on a 7-yard run in the second quarter to equal the mark set by Travis Prentice of Miami (Ohio) in 1999. The senior finished with 191 yards on 39 carries but missed a chance to break the record when he fumbled at the goal line in the fourth quarter. Ball already shares the FBS season touchdown record, matching Barry Sanders' long-standing mark of 39 last year.
