Dec. 2, 2012 at 12:41 AM

INDIANAPOLIS, Dec. 2 (UPI) -- James White and Montee Ball combined for seven rushing touchdowns Saturday and Wisconsin smashed No. 13 Nebraska 70-31 in the Big Ten championship game.

White racked up 109 rushing yards on 15 carries, scoring four times, and also added a 3-yard touchdown pass to Sam Arneson as the Badgers (8-5, 5-4 Big Ten) qualified for their third straight Rose Bowl.

Ball added three TDs en route to 202 yards on 21 tries and Curt Phillips completed 6-of-8 passes for 71 yards for Wisconsin, which will meet Pac-12 champs Stanford Jan. 1.

The Badgers were playing in the Big 10 title game thanks to the NCAA suspensions of Ohio State and Penn State.

The Cornhuskers (10-3, 7-2), meanwhile, saw their six-game winning streak snapped as Taylor Martinez was picked off twice.

The Nebraska quarterback threw for 184 yards on 17-of-33 efficiency while also carrying the ball 19 times for 140 yards and two scores.
