Iowa 30, Wisconsin 7
Iowa sent Michigan to the Rose Bowl.
Drew Tate threw three touchdown passes and Iowa's defense forced four turnovers to beat No. 9 Wisconsin, 30-7, and claim a share of the Big Ten title on Saturday.
Ohio State's 37-21 victory over Michigan earlier in the day raised the stakes for the 80th meeting between the Badgers and Hawkeyes, putting the conference championship on the line for both teams.
The No. 17 Hawkeyes (9-2, 7-1) won their second league title in three years, splitting it this time with Michigan. But the Wolverines claim the invitation to the Rose Bowl thanks to their 30-17 victory over Iowa earlier this season. For the Badgers (9-2, 6-2), a promising season has crumbled the last two weeks with losses by a combined score of 79-21.
After a rocky start, Tate settled down and finished 15 of 24 for 186 yards. He fired two touchdown passes to Clinton Solomon, including a 51-yarder late in the first half, and another to Scott Chandler late in the third quarter.
Kyle Schlicher kicked three field goals, all in the second half, to lead Iowa to its 18th straight home win.
