MADISON (WKOW) -- It was an emotional loss Saturday for the Badger football team, falling 21-14 in overtime to unbeaten Ohio State. It was especially difficult for the seniors playing in their final game at Camp Randall Stadium.
It has been quite a career in Madison for all the seniors, but particularly for Montee Ball. On Saturday, he tied the NCAA record for career touchdowns with 78, and he fell about half a yard short from breaking the record.
It wasn't the end result he had hoped for but after the game, Ball was able to reflect on his time at Camp Randall.
"It's been great. It's been everything I dreamed of. Once I made my decision to come here, I knew it was going to be a great environment here every single home game. I knew the tradition was going to sink into me and always be with me, and it has. It's one journey that I'll never forget," Ball said.
"It hurts because we weren't able to give the seniors a win on their last home game. Luckily for us, the seniors have 3 more games with us so we have a little bit of time to hopefully turn it around for them, but it definitely hurts," junior center Travis Frederick said.
Wisconsin plays at Penn State on Saturday, Nov. 24 in the final game of the regular season.
