IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Tate Forcier could only watch from the sideline this time, as teammate Denard Robinson tried to lead another Michigan miracle.
But Robinson's long pass sailed right to Iowa safety Brett Greenwood, who recorded the Hawkeyes' fifth turnover and sealed the victory. There is no way to know if it would have been different had Forcier stayed in the game, but Michigan didn't deserve to win with so many miscues. Robinson missed a wide-open Brandon Minor down the field.
No. 12 Iowa remains unbeaten and wins its 10th straight game, the second-longest win streak in the country. The Hawkeyes won with special teams, opportunistic defense and just enough offense. Iowa is 6-0 for the first time since 1985.
