Wisconsin running back Montee Ball is the winner of the 2011 Chicago Tribune Silver Football, awarded annually to the Big Ten's best player since 1924. Ball is the first Badger to claim the Silver Football since fellow running back Ron Dayne was honored in 1999. Ball has tallied a Big Ten record 38 touchdowns this season, just one shy of the NCAA record, and led the conference in rushing and all-purpose yards. He is a finalist for the Heisman Trophy and was already named the Big Ten Graham-George Offensive Player of the Year and the Ameche-Dayne Running Back of the Year.
