Who is Wisconsin's biggest Heisman snub?

EA Sports NCAA Football '13 is all about the Heisman Trophy this year as you put any previous Heisman winner on any current team.

Last week, we asked you which former Heisman winner you would want on the Badgers. This week, EA Sports wants to know which UW non-Heisman winner should have won the trophy.

For me, we don't have to go too far back to get the answer. In fact, we only need to go back about seven months. Last December, Montee Ball received a trip to New York as a Heisman Trophy finalist but didn't win the award. I'm not sure I necessarily disagree with Robert Griffin III winning it, but Ball was certainly worthy.

Ball finished the year with 39 touchdowns scored (33 rushing, six receiving), smashing the Big Ten record of 26 touchdowns with two regular season games remaining. He even threw a touchdown pass that didn't count towards that record.

Ball led the nation with 1923 rushing yards and finished with a staggering 6.26 yards per carry average. While Alabama running back Trent Richardson received most of the praise nationally, it's hard to argue that there was a better running back in the country than Ball.

Unfortunately, Wisconsin's stud tailback didn't win the Heisman. The good news? Ball came back for more in 2012 and has a very good chance to do it this year.
