Iowa draws first blood, Badgers bounce back

MADISON, Wisc. -- An error on the part of Tyler Donovan helped Iowa earn the game's first points. Looking for Luke Swan, Donovan was intercepted late in the half, giving Iowa excellent field position. From there, the Hawkeyes worked a seven-play, 22-yard drive before settling for a 41-yard Daniel Murray field goal to make the score 3-0.

But with less than two minutes to go in the half, the Badgers mounted their own drive. P.J. Hill had a pretty run to the goal line. Before he reached it, he coughed up the ball. Center Marcus Coleman landed on it for a Badger touchdown with :55 remaining. But instant replay took away the score due to an early whistle. No biggie, Donovan found Travis Beckum two plays later for a touchdown. Score: 7-3 Wisconsin.

The play was the first touchdown Iowa has allowed all season ... a seven-play, 72-yards drive in 1:39.
Amazing --after absolutely no offense, whatsoever, now it's become a scoring spree.
