Greene Party: Hawkeyes rumble by Badgers


John Clay led the Badgers with 89 yards rushing, and Zach Brown added a late 21-yard touchdown run. P.J. Hill injured his left ankle in the second quarter and did not return. He finished with 34 yards on eight carries.

The Hawkeyes, behind a pair of Greene touchdowns, led 14-3 at halftime.

Iowa went up 7-0 on its first possession, as Greene capped a 70-yard drive with a 12-yard TD run. His next score, a 34-yard run that made it 14-0 midway through the second quarter, was a thing of beauty.

Greene burst into Wisconsin’s secondary, juked cornerback Chris Maragos and, after shaking off safety Jay Valia’s attempt to drag him down from behind, dashed into the end zone.

That dazzling run even got Stanzi’s attention — and he was supposed to be carrying out a play-fake.

“I stopped because I saw him go through the line and (thought) ’I’m just going to watch this one,”’ Stanzi said. “It’s like, how much better can he get? He’s doing everything he’s supposed to do to help us out.”
