Legendary Badgers RB Montee Ball on the 2025 CFB Hall of Fame ballot

Legendary Wisconsin running back Montee Ball is one of 77 players listed on the 2025 College Football Hall of Fame ballot released Monday.

At a school flooded with great running backs, Ball was one of the best. His 5,140 career rushing yards rank third in program history, but his 77 rushing touchdowns rank No. 1. His 39 touchdowns in 2011 ties Barry Sanders for the most in a single season in the history of college football.

After being selected with the No. 58 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, things didn’t work out for Ball in the pros. He played in just three seasons, totaling 731 yards and five touchdowns.

Ball could become the 17th player or coach from Wisconsin to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. The official announcement of the class will take place in early 2025, while the induction ceremony will take place in December.
