MINNEAPOLIS (KTTC/AP) -- Montee Ball broke the Big Ten's single-season touchdown record and 16th-ranked Wisconsin trampled Minnesota 42-13 to keep Paul Bunyan's Axe for the eighth straight year -- and stay in the conference title chase.
Russell Wilson had a season-high four touchdown passes. He was on target with every throw and every decision, connecting on all but his last throw, a deep ball that Nick Toon had in his hands but let trickle out as he hit the turf hard midway through the third quarter. Toon, who finished with eight catches for 100 yards and two scores, was shaken up on that play. Wilson went 16 for 17 for 178 yards.
In just 10 games, Ball has 27 total touchdowns.
