Montee Ball ran for 201 yards and three touchdowns and Wisconsin rushed for the 539 yards to rout Nebraska 70-31 in the Big Ten title game Saturday night in Indianapolis.

The Badgers (8-5, 5-4 Big Ten) are the first team to reach the Rose Bowl with five losses and are the first Big Ten team to make it in three straight years since Michigan in the late 1970s. They also tied Texas' record for most points in a conference championship game.

It was a fitting end to a wacky Big Ten season that pitted the Huskers (10-3, 7-2), the Legends Division champ, against the third-place team from the Leaders Division. But Nebraska never had a chance with Ball and his teammates running wild. Melvin Gordon ran for 217 yards and one TD while James White had 108 yards, four TDs and one TD pass.
