Coker rushes for 2 TDs and Iowa holds off No. 13 Michigan 24-16
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) ' Marcus Coker ran for 132 yards and a pair of touchdown and Iowa held off a late Michigan rally to beat the 13th-ranked Wolverines 24-16 on Saturday.
James Vandenberg added 171 yards passing and a TD for the Hawkeyes (6-3, 3-2 Big Ten), who've won three straight over Michigan for the first time in school history.
Michigan drove to Iowa's 3-yard line with 16 seconds left. But Denard Robinson missed on four straight throws, with Iowa's B.J. Lowery breaking up Robinson's final toss to seal the win.
Vincent Smith appeared to pull the Wolverines (7-2, 3-2) within 24-22 on an 82-yard TD run after bouncing off Iowa's James Morris and going untouched for the score. Replay officials overruled the call, but Michigan drove to the Hawkeyes doorstep before being stopped.
Robinson finished 17-of-37 passing for 194 yards and two TD passes.
