Hawkeyes hold off Hoosiers

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - LeShun Daniels Jr. ran for two scores and injured quarterback C.J. Beathard threw the game-clinching touchdown midway through the fourth quarter to keep No. 10 Iowa unbeaten with a 35-27 win at Indiana on Saturday.
The Hawkeyes (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten, No. 9 CFP) have matched the best start in school history. The last time it happened was 2009.
It was another frustrating finish for Indiana (4-5, 0-5), which got within 21-20 after a 28-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter.
But Daniels answered with a 1-yard scoring run, and Beathard sealed it with a 10-yard TD pass to George Kittle.
Indiana got a late touchdown but was unable to recover the onside kick.
Beathard finished 19 of 33 for 231 yards.
Indiana's Jordan Howard ran 22 times for 174 yards and two scores against the nation's No. 5 run defense, but the Hoosiers lost their fifth straight.
