 The Iowa Hawkeyes just ran out of time. Wisconsin managed to run the final 5:01 off the clock as the 16th ranked Badgers snuck out of Iowa City with a 26-24 win.

Wisconsin jumped out to a 16-3 halftime lead behind rushing touchdowns from Melvin Gordon and Tanner McEvoy. Gordon scored twice in the game, ran for 200 yards, and surpassed 2,000 rushing yards for the season.

Iowa's offense, however, woke up in the second half. Jake Rudock hit Kevonte Martin-Manley on a 20 yard scoring strike to pull Iowa within 19-11 after 3 queaters. Rudock then capped off an 82 yard drive with a 3 yard touchdown run on a draw play to pull Iowa back within 2.

That's when Gordon appeared to put the game away for the Badgers with a 23 yard touchdown run midway through the 4th, but Iowa would not go away. Rudock through his second touchdown pass of the game, a 9 yard strike to tight end Jake Duzey as the Hawks trailed 26-24 with 5:01 to go. Rudock threw for 311 yards in the ballgame.

Wisconsin, however, managed to pick up a pair of first downs on their final drive allowing them to milk the remaining time off the clock.
