Hawkeyes Preview Matchup with Penn State

Herky the Hawk performs during game

Penn State: The Nittany Lions had lost their last two home games, to Ohio State and Michigan State, by blowing fourth-quarter leads.

The 2004 season when Iowa, which was 4-2 and ranked No. 25 by the AP Top 25, made its way east to take on a Penn State team that was struggling at 2-4 on the season.

This week, the Hawkeyes talked about PSU and what they need to do to win in State College.

The Nittany Lions picked up a huge 30-24 victory over Iowa at Beaver Stadium on Saturday. Penn State should win this one, but it could very well be another one that has fans on the edge of their seats, sweating profusely. The 6-foot, 202-pound McSorley has started 35 straight games for Penn State since the start of the 2016 season. He also rushed for 18 yards on five carries and the first-half touchdown. He had 12 carries.

Are Arjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora planning to get married next year?
Last weekend, when Arjun appeared on the premiere episode of Malaika's show India's Got Talent, they went on stage hand-in-hand . Coincidentally, Arjun recently pointed out his grandmother wanted him to get married.

Geno Stone intercepted McSorley's pass and returned it 24 yards for a touchdown to make it 27-24 with 10 minutes left in the fourth. No. 18 Iowa opened the game as almost a touchdown underdog, but has played convincingly in the first half.

You know what they say, offense wins games but defense wins championships. Iowa scored on two safeties and a touchdown pass by punter Colten Rastetter to defensive tackle Sam Brincks on a faked field goal in the first half.

On a melancholy, damp day that just missed the calendar qualification for Guns 'N Roses "November Rain", Iowa's football team at times was as brilliant as the song's high-arcing crescendo and as dreary as the overall message.

From 2000-10, Iowa gave Penn State plenty of nightmares by winning eight of nine meetings between the two programs, but the Nittany Lions have taken back control of the series with wins in each of the last four Big Ten meetings. The Hawkeyes play a style of football that can slow things down for Penn State and lead to the type of game that ended up favoring Michigan State in Happy Valley a couple of weeks ago.
