Ball lifts Badgers in crucial road win

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.—Merely three weeks ago, Wisconsin (2-1 Big Ten, 5-2 overall) senior running back Montee Ball’s chances at breaking the NCAA touchdown record seemed questionable, the team’s chance at returning to Indianapolis seemed equally bleak and its offensive identity was essentially non-existent.

Offense breaks out in win at Purdue

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.—Considering the way the Badgers have run the ball this season, their opening drive Saturday was noteworthy. Wisconsin (2-1 Big Ten, 4-2 overall) matched an early Purdue touchdown by marching 75 yards in five plays, including two rushes for 21 yards and three effective play-action-passes. Absent from the whole drive: senior running back Montee Ball.

Offense finding drive

Wisconsin (1-1 Big Ten, 4-2 overall) will need to add onto its most complete performance last weekend against Illinois if it wants to defeat Purdue (0-1 Big Ten, 3-2 overall) and remain the favorite to represent the Leaders Division in the Big Ten Championship game Dec. 1.

As a sports fan, it’s much easier to look at things from a glass-half-full perspective when discerning the prospects of the ongoing season. Fans of this year’s Wisconsin football team (0-1 Big Ten, 3-2 overall) can take a lesson in optimism from head coach Bret Bielema, who gave off a heavy dose of good vibes at his weekly Monday press conference following a crushing 30-27 defeat to No. 22 Nebraska (1-0, 4-1) Saturday.
