MADISON, Wis. -- Opportunistic defense and clutch plays on offense helped Iowa rally from another deficit to preserve its perfect record at 7-0.

The Hawkeyes retained the Heartland Trophy, won in Madison for the third time in their last four tries and extended the nation's second-longest win streak to 11 games. Defenders Pat Angerer and Adrian Clayborn were fabulous, and quarterback Ricky Stanzi and his wide receivers/tight ends heated up in the second half. For the second time this season, Iowa rallied from a 10-0 deficit on the road to win big.

Wisconsin once again couldn't turn a dominant first half into a comfortable lead, and quarterback Scott Tolzien made way too many mistakes in the second half.

The Hawkeyes are now the team to beat in the Big Ten and can set their sights on the Rose Bowl and possibly more.video
