IOWA CITY, Iowa. (AP) — Samantha Logic posted her fifth-career triple-double, and Bethany Doolittle scored 23 points and blocked five shots, to lead No. 18 Iowa women past Dayton 90-83 in the championship game of the Hawkeye Challenge on Saturday night.

Ally Disterhoft added 18 points; Whitney Jennings scored 15, including three 3-pointers, and Melissa Dixon chipped in with 10.

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — David Johnson padded three school records in his final regular-season game, rushing for a career-high 205 yards and three touchdowns in Northern Iowa’s 38-24 win over Missouri State Saturday. It was the 22nd time in Johnson’s career that he rushed for more than 100 yards in a game, but the first time he topped 200. His three touchdown runs (6-, 31- and 9-yards) give him 59 for his career, his 205 yards give him 4,487 for his career, and he added 243 all-purpose yards to his career best mark (6,439).

The teams traded first-half touchdowns until Johnson broke open for his 31-yard scoring run to give Northern Iowa (8-4, 6-2 Missouri Valley) a 21-14 lead. Missouri State (4-8, 1-7) got a 28-yard field goal from Marcelo Bonani to cut the lead to 31-24 midway through the fourth, but Chad Owens put the game away with a 7-yard TD run.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Freshman Patrick Mahomes passed for 328 yards and four touchdowns, the last a 44-yard fourth-quarter toss to Kenny Williams that lifted Texas Tech to a 34-31 victory over Iowa State on Saturday.

Iowa State led 31-27 lead on Aaron Wimberly’s 3-yard touchdown run early the fourth quarter, but missed a chance to extend the lead when Cole Netten’s 42-yard field goal attempt hooked left. Tech (4-7, 2-6 Big Twelve) then marched 75 yards in seven plays for the game-winner, which came when Mahomes found Williams all alone in the right flat and the 228-pounder rambled untouched to the end zone with 4:07 left to end the Red Raiders’ three-game losing streak.

Iowa State (2-7, 0-7) drove into Tech territory after Williams’ touchdown but gave up the ball on downs when quarterback Sam Richardson was stopped just short of converting at the Red Raiders’ 31.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Melvin Gordon surpassed 2,000 yard rushing with 200 yards and two touchdowns, and 14th-ranked Wisconsin held off Iowa 26-24 on Saturday for its sixth straight win. Gordon became the 17th FBS player with a 2,000-yard rushing season to lead the Badgers (9-2, 6-1 Big Ten). Wisconsin still has to beat Minnesota in Madison next weekend to earn a shot at Ohio State in the Big Ten title game.

Gordon’s performance came just hours after Oklahoma’s Samaje Perine broke his week-old FBS record with 427 yards rushing in a win over Kansas. But Gordon was sensational in his own right, cracking the 2,000-yard on an 88-yard run midway through the third quarter.

Jake Rudock had 311 yards passing and two TDs for the Hawkeyes (7-4, 4-3), who rallied from 16 down to get within 26-24 with just over 5 minutes left.

Ryan Tentler threw 64 yards to Darius McGriff for a Stetson touchdown and Cole Mazza ran 1 yard for the other. Tentler was 14 of 22 for 225 yards with an interception for the Hatters (5-7, 3-5), who also lost two fumbles.
