The Wisconsin Badgers and Nebraska Cornhuskers met Saturday in Indianapolis for the Big Ten Championship and a trip to the Rose Bowl. Badgers running back Melvin Gordon amassed 216 yards on just 9 attempts as the Badgers took an early lead, but Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez may have had the run of the game. Martinez scrambled 76 yards for the touchdown to cut the Bader lead to 14-7, but the Wisconsin rushing attack was just too lethal. Montee Ball finished with 202 yards and 3 touchdowns - it was the first time a Badger team had 2 200-yard rushers in a game. A third running back James White, added 4 touchdowns on the ground as the Badgers dominated Wisconsin, 70-31, to make it to their 3rd straight Rose Bowl. They will be the first 5-loss team to play in the prestigious game when they face Stanford on New Year's Day.

And Wisconsin's rushing attack was just getting started.
