|#8 Ohio State Rallies to Top Iowa
|IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Dan Herron rushed for a 1-yard touchdown with 1:47 left and No. 8 Ohio State rallied to beat Iowa 20-17 Saturday to keep its hopes for a Rose Bowl bid alive.
Terrelle Pryor threw for 195 yards and a touchdown for the Buckeyes (10-1, 6-1 Big Ten), including a 14-yard run on fourth down to keep the game-winning drive alive.
No. 21 Iowa (7-4, 4-3) went ahead 17-10 early in the fourth quarter on freshman Marcus Coker's 1-yard TD run. But Devin Barclay's 48-yard field goal brought the Buckeyes within 17-13, and Pryor engineered a 76-yard drive despite DeVier Posey's drop of a sure TD pass.
Ohio State is now tied with Wisconsin and Michigan State atop the Big Ten standings heading into next week's showdown with rival Michigan in the Horseshoe.
Ricky Stanzi had 195 yards passing and a touchdown for the Hawkeyes, who've let up a game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter of each of their defeats.
