Northwestern 14, Iowa 10

The Iowa Hawkeyes West Division Title hopes came to a  screeching halt Saturday as the Northwestern Wildcats bounced the Hawks from contending in the west with a 14-10 win.

Northwestern locked up the Big Ten West division and advances to the championship game for the first time.  

Hawks quarterback Nate Stanley threw for 269 yards on 27-41 passing and one score.  Iowa only ran for 64 yards and Northwestern’s score with 9:27 left in the game sealed Iowa’s fate.

The Hawks have lost three straight and travel to Illinois Saturday.

Iowa 93, Wisconsin-Green Bay 82

Luka Garza had 17 points on eight of 12 shooting as Iowa pulled away down the stetch for a 93-82 win over Wisconsin-Green Bay. Garza was one of six Hawkeyes in double figures.
