IOWA CITY, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) - Fans can breathe a huge sigh of relief. Junior running back Akrum Wadley announced he will return to Iowa for his senior season.

He was the lone bright spot in Iowa's 30-3 loss to Florida in the Outback bowl. He rushed for 115 yards, which put him over 1,000 yards for the season, joining his teammate LeShun Daniels. It's the first time Iowa has had two 1,000 yard rushers in a season.

"The main three reasons are to earn my degree, to have another year to prepare physically, and to not end my collegiate career on a bad note; we have some unfinished business," said Wadley in a statement.
