No. 6 Buckeyes beat Wisconsin in OT, 21-14
OHIO ST 21, WISCONSIN 14

By NANCY ARMOUR
AP National Writer

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Carlos Hyde scored on a 2-yard run in
overtime Saturday, giving No. 6 Ohio State a 21-14 victory over
Wisconsin and keeping the Buckeyes' hopes of a perfect season
alive.



The win gave the Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0 Big Ten) the Leaders
Division title outright. But they are ineligible for the Big Ten
title game and a bowl as part of their punishment for NCAA
violations under former coach Jim Tressel. The best the Buckeyes
can hope for is to end the regular-season unbeaten, hope no one
else does and perhaps sneak in as No. 1 in the AP Top 25.



Ohio State finishes the season with The Game, hosting Michigan
in a showdown that could determine the Legends Division winner.



Montee Ball tied the major-college career record with his 78th
touchdown, a 7-yard run in the second quarter. But he fumbled on
what would have been the record-breaker with 2:46 left in
regulation, leaping over the pile on the goal line with the ball
held in front of him and having it batted away by Ryan Shazier.



Wisconsin (7-4, 4-3) got one more chance, thanks to a defense
that was stellar all day. It limited the Buckeyes to 236 yards
and only allowed Ohio State to cross midfield once after
halftime. It forced a quick three-and-out to give the Badgers
the ball back with time and great field position. Third-string
quarterback Curt Phillips took advantage, finding Jacob Pedersen
for a 5-yard score to tie the game at 14 with eight seconds
left.



The Badgers won the toss and opted to play defense, and Ohio
State made quick work of overtime. Hyde ripped off a run of 11
yards on the first play and, two plays later, strolled virtually
untouched into the end zone for the go-ahead score.



After Ball opened Wisconsin's OT drive with a 6-yard run, the
Buckeyes shut him down and the Badgers couldn't find any other
options before safety Christian Bryant batted down Phillips'
fourth-down pass to end the game.



Ball finished with 191 yards on a career-high 39 carries. He'll
have three more games to get the record he shares with Travis
Prentice of Miami (Ohio) all to himself, starting next weekend
at Penn State.



But Wisconsin lost its chance to prove it's not going to the Big
Ten title game simply by default. The Badgers trail both Ohio
State and Penn State in the Leaders Division, but neither team
is eligible for the postseason. The Badgers also wanted to
avenge last year's loss to Ohio State, when the Buckeyes won on
Braxton Miller's 40-yard heave with 20 seconds left.



The Buckeyes, though, were having none of it.



They have known all along that the postseason isn't an option
for them, and they made peace with it months ago. But a perfect
record is still within their reach, and it would go a long way
in making up for all those wins from the 2010 season that were
erased by NCAA sanctions.
