It was far from pretty, but Iowa secures a 14-7 victory against Rutgers in Piscataway. Iowa running back Akrum Wadley scored the go-ahead 26-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Iowa certainly doesn't look as invincible as once thought. It's going to be a dog fight for the Big Ten West division between Iowa, Wisconsin, Nebraska and even Minnesota.
