SAN DIEGO, DEC. 30 -- David Hudson's one-yard touchdown run with 7:33 remaining capped a two-touchdown rally in the fourth quarter as No. 18 Iowa edged Wyoming, 20-19, in the 10th Holiday Bowl tonight.

It was the sixth straight victory for Iowa, which finished the season with a 10-3 record. Wyoming, which had won nine straight, also finished at 10-3.

The triumph was Iowa's second straight one-point win in the Holiday Bowl. Last year, the Hawkeyes beat San Diego State, 39-38.

Tonight's game, played before a record crowd of 61,892, was the fifth Holiday Bowl decided by one point. With the exception of 1982, no Holiday Bowl has been won by more than seven points and all of those games were decided in the final two minutes.

Hudson's run, the first offensive score by Iowa, gave the Hawkeyes their first lead of the game. It climaxed an 86-yard, 10-play drive, but it nearly wasn't enough.

With 3:44 remaining, the Cowboys started a drive on their 25. Four consecutive completions by Craig Burnett brought the ball to the Iowa 35. After three straight incompletions, Greg Worker's 52-yard field goal attempt was blocked by Merton Hanks. Earlier, Hanks blocked a punt that was returned for a touchdown and intercepted a pass to end the game.
