Hawkeyes comeback falls short


TUCSON, Ariz. (KWWL) - Nick Foles hit William Wright with a late 4-yard touchdown pass and No. 24 Arizona won 34-27 over ninth-ranked Iowa Saturday night.

Arizona (3-0) jumped out to a 20-point halftime lead behind a slew of big plays that included a blocked punt, Travis Cobb's 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and an interception returned 85 yards by Trevin Wade for another score.

Iowa (2-1) rallied behind its defense in the second half, stopping the Wildcats' offense and setting up two of Ricky Stanzi's three touchdown passes.

The Hawkeyes had a chance at the lead midway through the fourth quarter when defensive tackle Broderick Binns returned an interception 20 yards for a touchdown.

The Hawkeyes play Ball State at home on Saturday.
