Iowa tops No. 17 Nebraska 40-10, Wisconsin wins Big Ten West

Nebraska also has aspirations of winning the West Division title in the Big Ten Conference, but needs a win and Wisconsin loss at home to Minnesota Saturday to advance to the league title game, December 3, in Indianapolis.

Nebraska: With so much to play for, it's hard to believe that the Cornhuskers played so, so poorly.

Iowa was averaging just 163 yards rushing a game coming in, but had 264 against Nebraska to go along with 144 passing yards. "We're all responsible for that". Twitter follower Shaun Lingweiler suggested I post a list of what Badgers fans should be rooting for this weekend (outside of beating Minnesota, of course), and I thought it was a great idea. Yes, 14. While Nebraska sputtered, the Hawkeyes put together two more lengthy touchdown drives of 6:15 and 8:10. It stayed at 6-0 though, as Joshua Kalu sprinted off the right side and blocked Keith Duncan's PAT attempt.

"That was a call from the sidelines", Beathard said. After a couple long rallies and another run by the Gophers, the Huskers took a second timeout down 9-2. Then the special teams allowed a 44-yard punt return by Desmond King, with a late hit tacked on that put the ball at the NU 13.

The apple on top of the trophy given to the victor of the Apple Cup was missing after it broke off on Thursday night.

While the Huskers were unable to get their offense going, they did go without a turnover for the third straight game.

There's a chance wide receiver Zack Darlington could start at quarterback.

The Hawkeyes rushed for 181 yards in the first half alone against a Husker defense that had come in giving up 129.8 a game. Three plays later Beathard hit George Kittle for a one-yard touchdown pass. Iowa attempted a two-point conversion after the Cornhuskers were called offside on a missed PAT attempt but did not convert.

Nebraska's other score came on a 4th-and-8 pass from the 13 to Stanley Morgan to make it 26-10 in the third quarter.

Texans should take note of a pivotal election to reform marijuana laws
But staunch opponents that included law enforcement groups and anti-drug crusaders urged the public to reject any changes. The other states that said yes to recreational use were Maine , Massachusetts and Nevada .

On Friday, the Hawkeyes had runs of 75 and 56 yards, and a pass of 77 yards, accounting for more than half of their 408 total yards.

Expect Biegel and his teammates to do the same against Minnesota and then in the Big Ten title game.

"Anyone willing to go out of their way and throw that around, even in a competitive environment, I think you're a piece of trash", Ekakitie said, per the Des Moines Register's Chris Cuellar.

Iowa (7-4, 5-3 Big Ten) plays at Nebraska (9-2, 6-2) at 2:30 p.m. Friday.

Nebraska's lone score came on a 35-yard field goal by Drew Brown. Daniels tacked on his second touchdown run in the closing minutes.

At this time past year, Nebraska football fans were dealing with the harsh reality of stomaching a five-win regular season if the Huskers couldn't pull off a regular season finale win over Iowa.

-Westerkamp's three receptions increased his career total to 166 moving him into a tie for second place on the NU career list, matching Nate Swift's 166 career receptions.

"It shows perseverance", senior defensive tackle Jaleel Johnson said. He's not going to be himself on his feet if he does play and getting him moving around would be huge for Iowa. We just kept moving forward. Daniels and junior RB Akrum Wadley also became the first running back duo to each have more than 900 yards on the ground for Iowa since the 1984 season. If he's projected as a Day 2 guy (Rounds 2-3), I think there's a good chance he leaves.

And here's the insane part: It's possible the Hawkeyes will, for the first time in school history, wind up with multiple 1,000-yard rushers in the same season.
