Penn State vs. Iowa: The big question

Iowa tapping into 'electric' night atmosphere for Penn State in prime time

The fourth-ranked Nittany Lions (3-0) are riding a remarkable run -- their lone loss since then coming against USC in the Rose Bowl -- but their first real test this season comes Saturday night against Iowa (3-0) at Kinnick Stadium to open Big Ten play.

Iowa pushed, Penn State shoved. They also couldn't stop the Penn State offense anytime they had the ball anyways, but Iowa has better play at quarterback and has the playmakers on offense to make possessions count with touchdowns and not field goals.

Fast forward 23 years to Saturday night in Iowa City, and Penn State was back in a similar situation.

"I was just walking back and forth trying to get my team ready", Allen said.

NOTES: Penn State had scored 30-plus points in 10 straight games.

As for IN and coach Tom Allen, the Hoosiers are 2-1. From the PSU 35, the Lions tried to blitz, and Wadley broke free around the left side for a TD run and 19-15 lead. "We stuck to what we know".

"I'm actually going to talk to our guys about it being a really, really nice gesture by the University of Iowa to welcome Penn State, since our original school colors are pink and black, and how wonderful it is and what a wonderful gesture it is that they painted their locker room pink for us". Two of their players won weekly Big Ten honors - running back Morgan Ellison as freshman of the week, and J-Shun Harris as special teams player of the week.

McSorley hit Johnson for 12 yards on the first play to the 32.

McSorley was 14 of 25 for 122 yards and one interception in the first half. Barkley's 358 all-purpose yards are 10th all-time in Big Ten history.

Wadley, like the rest of the offense, had trouble getting into a rhythm to start. "You know, he missed the one on Saturday; he came to the sideline, and he goes, 'That one's on me".

Facebook to share Russian-linked ads with congressional investigators
But he warned that Facebook is not going to be able to catch all undesirable material before it hits its social network. But he said the company will continue to examine fake accounts it has removed there for any evidence of meddling.

Trace McSorley got famous throwing footballs over defenses.

"We gave the ball up about five seconds before that", Dilanni said. But another Lewerke turnover, this time a fumble in his own territory, set up Notre Dame with a short field, which Wimbush turned into an 8-yard touchdown pass to Dexter Williams. His previous career best was 207. He also caught a career-high 12 passes for 94 yards and had 53 yards in kickoff returns.

"That was a Heisman-like performance". Although, don't take my word for it, I said this past year against MI, and well, we won.

The match against Iowa will come in the midst of a four away-game stretch for the Huskers, as they travel to Purdue, Indiana, Iowa and Northwestern in a span of nine days in October. In addition, he entered the end zone on an impressive showing of footwork. One star shined bright for the Nittany Lions: Running back Saquon Barkley.

Nebraska postponed the game due to a number of its players out with an unnamed illness, therefore making them unable to play.

Until the final 96 seconds, when McSorley, Barkley and Johnson saved the day with a memorable scoring drive.

"I thought we were able to move the ball, we just weren't finishing drives". On fourth-and-2 from Penn State's 40, McSorley threw a dart to Saeed Blacknall on a six-yard slant. Mayfield's next chance to improve his odds will be at home against Iowa State on October 7. Eleven seconds to play.

Half full: Saquon Barkley is incredible.

Wadley rushed for 80 yards and ended with 75 receiving with the two touchdowns.

Stanley has been the lynchpin for a much-improved passing attack for the Hawkeyes. Penn State's offense must find ways to spread the wealth, which it usually does.
