Montee Ball is a happy man after Wisconsin advances to National Championship - Horse Tracks

Wisconsin knocked out the undefeateds and Duke dominated Michigan State to set up a great National Championship Game between two first seeds.

It was a very happy night for Wisconsin fans, including Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball. The Wisconsin alum took to Twitter to celebrate with his fellow Badger alumni.

The celebrations won't end here for Ball - he indicated he'll be attending the National Championship Game between Wisconsin and Duke on Monday.

Of course, he might run into teammate and Duke alum, Juwan Thompson.

The two quarterbacks closest to Manning's rating were Tom Brady (one-tenth of a point better) and Andrew Luck (three-tenths of a point better).
