No. 24 Wisconsin edges Indiana

BY foxsports • November 8, 2009

No. 24 Wisconsin relied on pure power, and it worked perfectly against Indiana yet again.

John Clay ran for 134 yards and a touchdown, Montee Ball scored two TDs and the Badgers even ran out the clock on the Hoosiers' late rally, holding on for a 31-28 victory Saturday.

"That's Wisconsin football," Ball said. "Run the football and just beat your opponents up and that's what we did."

It seemed about that simple, though Wisconsin's overpowering performance should have been no surprise to the Hoosiers (4-6, 1-5 Big Ten).

A year ago, the Badgers left Bloomington with three 100-yard runners and 441 yards on the ground. On Saturday, Clay and Ball both topped 100 yards and the team finished with 294 yards rushing. That gives Wisconsin (7-2, 4-2) 735 yards rushing in its last two games against Indiana and five straight wins in the series.
