There Are Still 4000 Unsold Tickets For Iowa vs. Penn State

When Barkley arrived at Penn State, Franklin challenged him to become more involved in the passing game.

You see that, and you're like "seriously, we get it, you aren't human". But, they've combined for just one tackle for loss, and in a way, they've been typical of the Penn State defense. The Nittany Lions have too much explosiveness in Trace McSorley and Saquon Barkley.

Iowa plays at Michigan State next weekend.

It has been one year since Penn State's last regular-season loss, a 49-10 rout to MI in Week 4 of 2016. While the game was unbelievable, and Iowa was one play away from the upset win, it's hard to understand how the Hawkeyes were even in such a position if you look at the box score. "We've invested in it, and were really getting a lot of return on our investment right now".

No team is going to stay with Penn State just in the kicking game, but Iowa has a potentially good one in Miguel Recinos, who is 3 for 3 on field goal attempts and has connected twice from beyond 40 yards.

Barkley is second nationally with 218.3 all-purpose yards per game.

But with McSorley and Barkley leading the charge, that lead wouldn't last.

Butler, a graduate transfer from Nevada, has carried the ball 36 times for 158 yards in three games with the Hawkeyes and was a two-time 1,300-yard rusher with the Wolfpack in 2016 and 2015.

"Felt like with (Johnson) we had a height advantage and we could slip him through the middle of the field", Penn State coach James Franklin said of the winning play. "We've been able to be better in that area". I don't care if I've got to run swing routes or run play action or if I've got to be a decoy.

The Hawkeyes are going to want to control the clock to limit the chances Penn State's offense to score if they have any shot and that is going to start with Nathan Stanley, Akrum Wadley and keep the chains moving.

The Nittany Lions were hurting for linebackers after all three of their starters went down with injuries.

We'll have up-to-the-minute scoring and stats here throughout the game. "Our plan will be to use all three guys". It will be a fun matchup to watch, as the two should come in contact with one another on multiple occasions Saturday night.

To get them to slow down their feet.

Barkley ranks fifth in the Big Ten in both rushing yards (102.3 per game) and receiving yards (80.3), making him the conference's most risky player with the ball. Ferentz is preparing for the dynamic back to have a bounce-back game. 2 MI past year and then-No. "Akrum made some plays on his own". That's the pressure you feel defensively."This offensive scheme is not the answer to everything, but when you have players like they have, good luck defending it". Though they won't say it right now, they know full well that MI and Ohio State lurk later on. "They're a team that's really loaded right now".

Pink and black and gold, it promises to be a colorful night under the lights at 6:30 p.m. today at Kinnick Stadium. Penn State's defense was just as dominant as the offense.

"I think it's awesome", Franklin said.

"I think a lot of it is our kids understanding that the margin for error is a lot smaller in Big Ten play", DiIanni said.
