Iowa City, IA (Sports Network) - Shonn Greene ran for a career-high 217 yards and four touchdowns to guide the Iowa Hawkeyes in a 38-16 victory over the Wisconsin Badgers in a Big Ten clash at Kinnick Stadium.
Greene is the first Iowa (5-3, 2-2 BigTen) player to score four touchdowns on the ground in a game since Tavian Banks turned the trick against Iowa State in 1997. He has also now gone over 100 yards in each game this season. Ricky Stanzi completed 11-of-18 pass attempts for 114 yards and a score for Iowa, which notched its second straight victory.
Dustin Sherer threw for 161 yards and a touchdown for Wisconsin (3-4, 0-4), but he was also picked off twice. Garrett Graham pulled in six of those passes for 74 yards, as the Badgers are 0-4 in the Big Ten for the first time since 1996.
The Hawkeyes opened the game's scoring with a 12-yard touchdown run by Greene midway through the first quarter.
Greene struck again midway through the second quarter, only this time he scored on a 34-yard scamper.
With 59 seconds left before the half, Wisconsin got on the board behind a Philip Welch 42-yard field goal.
Welch drilled back-to-back field goals in the third quarter and the Badgers trailed just 14-9.
Iowa, though, would counter with just over five minutes left in the frame, as Greene found paydirt from 52 yards away.
Stanzi than threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Allen Reisner to give Iowa a 28-9 lead heading into the final quarter.
Greene capped his day with a 34-yard touchdown run for Iowa just over five minutes into the final quarter. A 35-yard field goal by Trent Mossbrucker a few minutes later extended the Hawkeyes' lead to 38-9.
The game's scoring was capped with a 21-yard touchdown run by the Badgers' Zach Brown.
Wisconsin, which has dropped four straight games, outgained Iowa 409-375, but committed three turnovers compared to none by the Hawkeyes.
