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 spoiling Senior Day for the Badgers.

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, in which Wisconsin will represent the division on Dec. 1 in Indianapolis.

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.

 Fast Facts
• Ball ties NCAA career touchdowns record with 78
• Phillips hits Pedersen for TD to force OT with 0:08 left
• Badgers' four losses have come by average of 4.0 points

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.
