If the Heisman Trophy isn't about names but instead based on hardcore, undeniable stats, then Wisconsin Badgers running back Montee Ball could very well be the one hoisting it at the Downtown Athletic Club.
In 13 games this season, Ball has carried the ball 275 times for 1,759 yards, which is the best in the Big Ten and the entire FBS. Not only that, but Ball's 32 rushing touchdowns are the most by a skill player in major college football by six scores. His 6.4 yards per carry is second in the nation among RBs with 200+ carries.
Lest you think Ball is a one-trick pony, he also caught 20 passes for 255 yards and six touchdowns.
In the biggest game of the year, with the Big Ten Title on the line, Ball scored four touchdowns and led the Badgers to victory and the Rose Bowl over the Michigan State Spartans.
To give you a picture of just how dominant Ball has been this year, there was not a single game that Wisconsin played where Ball had fewer than two touchdowns.
