Ball "I'm gonna play. No doubt" vs. Nebraska

MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin senior running back Montee Ball told reporters Tuesday night there's no doubt in his mind he's going to play Saturday at Nebraska. Only problem for Ball, that's not completely up to him.
    Ball of course left last Saturday's game against UTEP, after suffering a concussion on his touchdown run. This is Ball's third concussion since last October's game at Michigan State. Ball only participated in conditioning drills Tuesday, and still isn't cleared by the medical staff, but it's clear, he'll do just about anything to be out there with his teammates.
   "If I'm cleared to play I'm gonna play. I don't want to sit out for this game," Ball said. "Pretty much right now I have to hope and pray it doesn't happen again, and I don't think it will."
   "If I do come back I have to keep playing the same. Keep playing the same and keep running as hard as I've been running."
