Hawks stay perfect with ugly win over Indiana

Posted:

IOWA CITY (AP) -- Ricky Stanzi overcame a career-high five interceptions to throw two long touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, helping No. 7 Iowa rally for a 42-24 victory over Indiana on Saturday.

Brandon Wegher had a career-high 118 yards rushing and three TDs for the Hawkeyes (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten), who scored 28 points in the fourth quarter to pull off yet another improbable win.

Stanzi threw four interceptions in the third quarter alone, allowing Indiana (4-5, 1-4) to take a 24-14 lead into the fourth quarter.

Stanzi responded by hitting Marvin McNutt for a 92-yard touchdown passes and, moments later, connected with Derrell Johnson-Koulianos from 66 yards to put Iowa ahead 28-24 with 11:38 left.

Wegher made it 35-24 on a 6-yard TD run and added a 27-yard score with 1:12 remaining.

Ben Chappell had 227 yards passing and two touchdowns to lead Indiana, which blew a 25-point lead in a loss at Northwestern last week.
