No. 11 Iowa stays perfect, beats Wisconsin 20-10

MADISON, Wis. (KWWL) - No. 11 Iowa needed a second-half road rally to keep its perfect season alive, coming back to beat Wisconsin 20-10 Saturday.

Trailing by a touchdown at halftime, the Hawkeyes (7-0, 3-0 Big Ten) began the third quarter by turning an interception into a tying touchdown pass from quarterback Ricky Stanzi to tight end Tony Moeaki.

Iowa took the lead on a 10-yard touchdown run by Adam Robinson early in the fourth quarter, and the Hawkeyes' defense kept the Badgers scoreless in the second half.

After appearing vulnerable to the run early on, Iowa's defense clamped down on Wisconsin (5-2, 2-2) and running back John Clay, who might have been slowed by a second-quarter leg injury after a big first quarter. Clay finished the game with 75 yards rushing and Scott Tolzien threw three interceptions.

Stanzi was 17 of 23 for 218 yards and a touchdown. Derrell Johnson-Koulianos caught 8 passes for 113 yards.
