Wisconsin football loses at Iowa, 38-16


IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Shonn Greene rushed for a career-high 217 yards and four touchdowns as Iowa pounded reeling Wisconsin 38-16 today.

The loss sends the Badgers to their first Oh-and-4 start in the Big Ten since 1996.

Greene had touchdown runs of 52, 34, 34, and 12 yards for the Hawkeyes (5-3, 2-2 Big Ten), who have answered a three-game losing streak with a pair of blowout wins.

He became the first Iowa player to rush for four touchdowns since Tavian Banks did it against Iowa State in 1997. He's the only player in the country with over 100 yards in his first eight games of the season.

Dustin Sherer was 17-of-34 for 161 yards and two interceptions for Wisconsin (3-4, 0-4). He was making his first career start in place of Allan Evridge.

The Badgers, who reached as high as Number 8 in the polls in late September, have been outscored 86-23 the past two weeks.
