Wisconsin Rallies To Beat Illinois
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Montee Ball rushed for 224 yards and Wisconsin forced four turnovers in a 28-17 comeback win against Illinois on Saturday.

The slumping Illini jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the second quarter and carried a 17-7 advantage into halftime. But Ball had a 5-yard TD run after Wisconsin recovered a fumble, pulling the Badgers within three early in the third quarter.

The Badgers kept up the pressure, grabbing the lead for good on quarterback Russell Wilson's 1-yard TD run that made it 21-17. Wilson's team only had to go 44 yards for the go-ahead score after a 74-yard punt buried the Illini at their own 3.

Donovonn Young rushed for two TDs for Illinois. He finished with 43 yards on eight carries.
