Wisconsin Badgers running back Montee Ball has made a habit of finding the endzone and today that knack scoring touchdowns has landed him in the record books. Ball scored his third touchdown of the game on a three-yard run in the fourth quarter. It was that touchdown that notched Ball the record.

The three-yard run was the 72nd of Ball’s college career and it is the 13th time in his career that he found the endzone three times in a game. With 72 touchdowns, Ball is now the all-time Big Ten touchdown leader.
