|Arizona Survives Win Over Iowa
|TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Nick Foles hit William Wright with a late 4-yard touchdown pass and No. 24 Arizona held its ground in the national spotlight with a momentum-swinging 34-27 win over ninth-ranked Iowa Saturday night.
Arizona (3-0) jumped out to a 20-point halftime lead behind a slew of big plays that included a blocked punt, Travis Cobb's 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and an interception returned 85 yards by Trevin Wade for another score.
Iowa (2-1) rallied behind its defense in the second half, grinding the Wildcats' offense to a halt to set up two of Ricky Stanzi's three touchdown passes.
The Hawkeyes had a chance at the lead midway through the fourth quarter when defensive tackle Broderick Binns returned an interception 20 yards for a touchdown, but Trent Mossbrucker's extra point was partially blocked, leaving the score at 27-all.
