Hawkeyes run winning streak to 7

Posted:

IOWA CITY (AP) -- Freshman running back Adam Robinson rushed for a career-high 101 yards and two touchdowns, and Iowa held Arizona to just eight first downs in beating the Wildcats 27-17 on Saturday.

Ricky Stanzi added 205 yards passing for the Hawkeyes (3-0), who held the Wildcats to 253 yards of offense in setting up next weekend's big game against No. 5 Penn State.

Iowa's Daniel Murray hit a 20-yard field goal to put Iowa ahead 17-10 late in the third quarter, and his 40-yarder following Tyler Sash's interception made it 20-10 early in the fourth. The Hawkeyes then went on an 8 1/2-minute drive that took up much of the quarter, and Brandon Wegher's 2-yard TD plunge put Iowa ahead 27-10 with 4:40 left.

Nic Grigsby had 75 yards rushing to lead Arizona (2-1), which lost its seventh straight to a Big Ten opponent.
