No. 8 Iowa holds off Minnesota 40-35


November 15th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — LeShun Daniels rushed for a career-high 195 yards and three touchdowns and Number 8 Iowa held off Minnesota 40-35 on Saturday night to start 10-0 for the first time in school history. C.J. Beathard threw for 213 yards and ran for two touchdowns for the Hawkeyes (10-0, 6-0 Big Ten, No. 5 CFP).

Iowa can now clinch the Big Ten West and a spot in the league title game with a win over Purdue next week. Gophers running back Shannon Brooks threw a 42-yard TD pass to Drew Wolitarsky and ran one in from 3 yards out in the final 5:32. But Daniels scored from 51 yards out with 2:01 left, and Minnesota’s onside kick with 1:16 to go squirted out of bounds.

No. 5 Oklahoma State rallies for 35-31 victory


November 14th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Backup quarterback J.W. Walsh threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Carr with 3:06 left Saturday, giving No. 5 Oklahoma State a 35-31 victory over Iowa State and keeping the unbeaten Cowboys in playoff contention. Oklahoma State (10-0, 7-0 Big 12) trailed 24-7 and 31-21 before rallying for a victory that was short on style points but still critical.

Walsh drew the Cowboys to 31-28 with a 16-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter and OSU drove 84 yards in 11 plays for the winning score after forcing a punt. Starter Mason Rudolph got Oklahoma State to the Iowa State 7 and Walsh, usually the team’s running quarterback, took it from here. He hit Carr with a swing pass on the left side and two blocks sprung the freshman to the end zone.
