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

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

Penn State has looked solid in its first three games, but stepping away from Beaver Stadium for the first time this season presents a new challenge for the Nittany Lions.

Yes, Iowa gave up 579 yards and gained but 273. And we know well that Iowa has troubles when it comes to the passing game.

Barkley shredded the Hawkeyes front seven with several of his signature jump-cuts, hurdles and hesitation moves en route to a career-high 211 rushing yards, marking the first time since the opener against Akron that he cracked the century mark.

If Iowa can keep Barkley from the end zone they'll greatly improve their chances at the upset, but stopping him doesn't necessarily mean that another Lion won't go off, but it does help a ton.

First and Goal from the Iowa 10-yard line. A lot of Iowa fans have probably already been counting down the hours until kick off (7:30 ET, ABC), but in case they were not ready, Iowa released a hair-raising hype video for the game on Friday. In a 21-0 hole early on the road against a tough IL defense, the star-loaded Penn State offense slowly clawed their way back to a victory to preserve their undefeated season and keep Penn State in the driver's seat for the school's first Big Ten championship. "The big difference in the game was that running back".

This season, Barkley has accounted for 300+ yards on 38 attempts with three touchdowns. He did, however, lose a fumble deep in Iowa territory that could've proven costly had North Texas held on to the ball. Ferentz, Iowa's head coach since 1999, said he hasn't seen many better backs in the Big Ten.

Given what PSU did to Iowa previous year (359 yards rushing), you can guarantee Kirk Ferentz will make it priority No. 1 to stop Saquon Barkley and the ground game.

Akrum Wadley had two fourth quarter touchdowns for Iowa.

"That game is illustrative of what it takes to win in the conference", Ferentz said. Cothren has five tackles this season, as he plays a key role as a disruptor on the interior of the Nittany Lion defensive line.

This success can be largely credited to McSorley and Barkley, who have combined to be a part of 14 of Penn State's scores - Barkley with 3 on the ground and 2 through the air, while McSorley has rushed for 2 touchdowns and thrown for 9. "Felt like with Juwan we had a height advantage and we could slip him through the middle of the field".

Set three started with Iowa taking an early 7-4 lead on a kill from Jess Janota, but Penn State stormed back, using a 4-0 to retake the lead. Might the Nittany Lions - 12½-point favorites - be in similar trouble? "But Kinnick's always been a home field and a great stadium". Yet again, Apke saved Penn State some points. As Iowa showed in Week 3, it doesn't seem to matter who is carrying the ball in the run game. "Both teams competed about as hard as you possibly can, and there were a lot of different swings in the game, certainly the last two drives; both teams executed well down the stretch".

Penn State football and Iowa are locked in a weird slugfest.

Will Penn State lose this game? The Hawkeyes will need something to hit that extra gear, but Ferentz expects the same "electric" atmosphere he's used to at night.
