Ball, Badgers roll into Penn State for finale

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Montee Ball needs just one more touchdown for an NCAA record.

One score will give Wisconsin's star senior tailback 79 career touchdowns, breaking the major college mark set by Travis Prentice of Miami (Ohio) in 1999.

The Badgers (7-4, 4-3 Big Ten) visit Penn State (7-4, 5-2) in the regular-season finale Saturday.

Wisconsin already has berth to the league title game next week because the two teams ahead of it in the Leaders Division -- Ohio State and Penn State -- are ineligible because of NCAA sanctions. But the Badgers want a victory to regain momentum headed into Indianapolis next week.

It will be an emotional day on Saturday for the Nittany Lions, who are saying goodbye to its senior class.
