Tyler Goodson ran for a career-high 153 yards and three touchdowns and No. 5 Iowa beat Kent State 30-7 on Saturday.

The Hawkeyes are 3-0, having won nine straight games overall and 14 straight nonconference games. Goodson had a 46-yard touchdown run in the first quarter to give Iowa a 9-0 lead, then added a 35-yard scoring run in the third quarter. He had a 2-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to close the scoring.

The Hawkeyes' defense got a first-quarter safety when KSU quarterback Dustin Crum was sacked in the end zone after a bad snap. Crum was 16-of-23 passing for 185 yards and was sacked seven times.

The Golden Flashes trailed just 16-7 at halftime and had a chance to cut the deficit to two early in the second half, but Bryan Bradford fumbled at the goal line. It's the second time in three weeks Kent State (1-2) has hung with a top 10 team only to falter late.

KSU's schedule doesn't get any easier, as next week they head to Maryland to face the unbeaten Terrapins in the final game before MAC play starts.
