MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) - The Ohio State Buckeyes scored on a short run in overtime to edge the Wisconsin Badgers 21-14 Saturday.

The win gives Ohio State the Leaders Division championship, but Wisconsin will be making the trip to the Big Ten Championship game. The Buckeyes are ineligible, despite their undefeated 7-0 conference record in an 11-0 season.

Montee Ball tied a major college touchdown record with a seven-yard scoring run in the second period. He almost became the all-time TD leader with 2:46 left in the game, but he had the ball batted away from him. The Badger defense held tough and third-string quarterback Curt Phillips led his team to a tying score on a five-yard touchdown pass with eight seconds left. Then, in overtime, Buckeye running back Carlos Hyde found the end zone from the two to give the number-six ranked visitors the win.

Ball will have three games left to break the touchdown record. He carried the ball 39 times yesterday for 191 yards.
