Freshman wide receiver Kendric Pryor scored two touchdowns to lead No. 8 Wisconsin to a 38-14 Big Ten Conference victory over No. 20 Iowa on Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium.

The Hawkeyes went 0-for-13 on third down, and their 66 yards were the second-fewest the Badgers have ever allowed.

He had a fumble and endured a miscommunication on a snap that led to linebacker Leon Jacobs' heads-up fumble recovery and 21-yard return for a TD that gave the Badgers 24-14 lead with 6:10 left in the third quarter.

T.J. Edwards: The Badgers junior linebacker recorded his fourth interception of the season to stop a promising Iowa drive late in the third quarter.

"I think you get into kind of a different mindset when you have better field position, like you don't have to work as hard maybe, but hats off to our defense", redshirt junior guard Beau Benzschawel said. Running back Jonathan Taylor grew any sort of Heisman Trophy momentum he has with 157 yards. Pryor had a 25-yard touchdown run and a 12-yard touchdown catch. "There will be a lot to learn from it, and all we can do is try to push forward the next two weeks and get back on track". He is a quality guy and I am so glad he is our quarterback. "They executed better than we did".

Two first-quarter interceptions by redshirt sophomore quarterback Alex Hornibrook led to seven points for the Hawkeyes and frustration for the Badgers, but Lotti's punts made it that much more hard for Iowa to respond and that much easier for Wisconsin's defense to hold strong. The Badgers continue to get bogged down by mistakes in spite of a season-long effort by Chryst to get the offense to cut down on miscues. Back home versus Iowa, Lotti bounced back, averaging 43.6 yards on five punts that had a ripple effect felt on both the offense and defense.

Police responded and were given a copy of the footage which includes the suspects' license plate number. The manager said they placed an order for four nuggets, not 10, and even showed them the receipt.

Center Tyler Biadasz left the game in the third quarter with a left leg injury.

Stanley passed for 226 yards and five touchdowns last week against Ohio State.

Quarterback Nate Stanley had an very bad trip back to his home state, finishing 8 of 24 for 41 yards. Stanley also lost a fumble on a sack by linebacker Ryan Connelly. The Badgers will have their College Football Playoff blood pressure taken on Tuesday night.

"It was two totally opposite ends of the spectrum from one week to the next", Stanley said.

Iowa: Hosts Purdue next Saturday.

The Badgers graduated four starters from last year's team, and have a roster full of new faces.
