Hawkeye defense bails out bad start from offense

MADISON, Wisc. -- With the Badgers charging, and in scoring range, the Hawkeye defense swarmed Badger quarterback Tyler Donovan, then Mike Klinkenborg forced a fumble to reverse the momentum the Badgers had built.

To start, the Hawkeye offense was held to a three-and-out on their first series after an incompletion, failed run and a QB sack. The Badger defense came out of the tunnel on fire, and their quick work gave the offense great field position to work with. From there, Badger quarterback completed his first two passes -- one to freshman Kyle Jefferson, the other to Luke Swan. But the Donovan turnover has put the Hawkeyes in position to score the game's first points.
