Clement carries No. 10 Wisconsin to 17-9 win over Iowa

Posted:

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Corey Clement ran for 134 yards and a touchdown and 10th-ranked Wisconsin used a stout defense to beat Iowa 17-9 on Saturday and snap a two-game skid.

Alex Hornibrook had 197 yards passing for the Badgers (5-2, 2-2 Big Ten), who won for the fourth straight time in Iowa City.

Backup Bart Houston threw a touchdown pass for Wisconsin, and Clement's 1-yard TD run put the Badgers ahead 14-6 midway through the third quarter.

But Wisconsin was carried by its defense. The Badgers allowed just 236 yards on 60 plays and held the Hawkeyes (5-3, 3-2) without a touchdown for the first time all season -- just a week after Iowa scored 49 points against Purdue.

C.J. Beathard had 153 yards passing for Iowa, which lost its third straight at home.
