MADISON, Wis. - Montee Ball ran for three touchdowns in his first career start, replacing injured running back John Clay, and Scott Tolzien threw for three more as No. 6 Wisconsin routed Indiana 83-20 on Saturday.
Wisconsin (9-1, 5-1) put up the most points by an FBS school this season and matched the highest scoring total by a team in a Big Ten conference game since Ohio State's 83-21 victory over Iowa in 1950.
Ball ran for 167 yards and freshman James White added 144 yards and two scores in place of Clay, who missed the first game of his career after spraining his right knee in last Saturday's win at Purdue.
Indiana (4-6, 0-6) kept it close for a quarter, but quarterback Ben Chappell left late in the first half favoring his left knee and hip.
