TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- If Shonn Greene has played his last game for Iowa, he's going out in style. The Big Ten's most valuable player rushed for 121 yards and three touchdowns Thursday, helping the Hawkeyes trounce SouthCarolina 31-10 in the Outback Bowl.
Greene, who sat out the 2007 season because of academic problems, ran for more than 100 yards in all 13 of Iowa's games and scored in all but one. He finished with school single-season records of 1,850 yards and 20 TDs.
The 235-pound junior from Sicklerville, N.J., said this week that he plans to meet with his family and consider information from the NFL college advisory committee before making a decision this month on whether to turn pro.
Iowa (9-4) won for the sixth time in seven games since losing three straight to fall to 3-3. South Carolina (7-6) lost three straight down the stretch while being outscored 118-30.
