Iowa-Penn State preview

The Iowa-Penn State series is close all-time. The Nittany Lions lead 14-12 thanks to three consecutive wins going back to the 2011 season. In the teams’ most recent meeting, Penn State won 41-14 at home last year. That win was during the Lions’ run to the Big Ten East title and later the Big Ten Championship Game win.

Both the Lions and Hawkeyes have won 5 in a row in the series, with Penn State winning from 1971 to 1975. Iowa’s five-game run went from 2000 to 2004.

Penn State is ranked No. 4 after beating Akron, rival Pitt and Georgia State to start its 2017 season. Offensively, Penn State is led by QB Trace McSorley and RB Saquon Barkley. Both players are seen as Heisman candidates, though Barkley might be a little out in front. After three games, McSorley is 51-for-76 passing for 753 yards, 9 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. He also has 137 rushing yards with 2 scores. Barkley has 307 rushing yards (8.1 per attempt) with 3 touchdowns. He also leads the team in receiving with 241 yards on 11 catches. He has a pair of receiving touchdowns.

Defensively, Penn State is allowing only 4.7 points per game. Marcus Allen leads the Nittany Lions with 18 total tackles. Opponents are averaging only 273.7 yards per game.

Iowa is also undefeated. The Hawkeyes beat Wyoming, rival Iowa State and most recently North Texas, 31-14. QB Nate Stanley is off to a strong start this season. He is 51-for-83 passing for 655 yards, 10 touchdowns and only 1 interception. RB Akrum Wadley has been a huge star, rushing for 258 yards and a touchdown while adding 152 receiving yards and a score on only 6 catches.

Defensive star Josey Jewell leads that side of the ball with 26 total tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss and 2 sacks. In the first game of the season, Iowa contained NFL draft prospect Josh Allen. The Wyoming quarterback passed for only 174 yards and threw two interceptions in the loss.
