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

Don't count Wisconsin out of the Big Ten West race just yet.

Corey Clement ran for 134 yards and a touchdown and the 10th-ranked Badgers used a stout defense to beat Iowa 17-9 on Saturday, snapping 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.

Back-to-back losses to Ohio State and Michigan put Wisconsin in a hole in its own division. But the Badgers survived a late Iowa surge — and next week they get division favorite Nebraska at home.

"They persevered. They kept playing, and they did it together," Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst said.
