WATCH: Iowa takes the lead in the Big Ten title game with an actual TD

Michigan State and Iowa played for three quarters in Indianapolis without scoring a touchdown.

Apparently something clicked when they switched sides for the fourth.

C.J. Beathard found Tevaun Smith on a deep pattern down the hash mark for an 85-yard scoring strike that put the Hawkeyes on top 13-9. Watch it above. 

The score wouldn't stand up, though, as Michigan State put together an epic 22-play, 82-yard scoring drive that took more than nine minutes off the clock and culminated with a 1-yard touchdown run by L.J. Scott. 


The Spartans won 16-13.
