Lions Roar Past Iowa On Final Play

To take advantage, the Lions are scheming to get Barkley the ball as often as possible. "This is what we do".

Penn State, for now, but Michigan, Ohio State and Wisconsin are lurking.

The Nittany Lions' front-runner status will be put to test Saturday night at Iowa, where Michigan's unbeaten season crashed to earth a year ago and where Penn State suffered the same fate in 2008.

One drive with an ending that'll be remembered for years to come.

PSU was caught in a blitz on both plays, and what had been an incredible defensive night up to that point turned into a "what the heck just happened" kind of evening. "Take care of what we can control, and you know, it will work out". If that sounds like a contradiction, it should, because those two angles should not exist in the same football game. They may get ahead of us in practice sometimes, but we get some and they get some.

Penn State had to convert a fourth down and two from their 40-yard line.

The Nittany Lions were moving.

"We gave the ball up about five seconds before that", Dilanni said. James Franklin burned his final timeout.

"We've got to get ready for the noise". In that game, the fourth of the season for Penn State, the Wolverines jumped to a 28-0 halftime lead after scoring touchdowns on four of their first five drives.

Lee killed for Penn State to end Foecke's service run and then added another to cut it to 23-22 Huskers.

"I noticed that right away my freshman year, " Daniels said.

Adjusting on the fly and drawing up a new version of the play, it was truly backyard football. The Nittany Lions never flinched. Franklin believes his No. 2 quarterback has a mastery of the offense on par with McSorley's. Johnson and Hamilton were running crossing post patterns, and McSorley fit the ball in a "windshield wiper" window.

Seven punts, one missed field goal, one lost fumble (recovered by Grant Haley), one safety (by Shareef Miller, wearing No. 19 in honor of fellow DE Torrence Brown, out for the season with an injury) and one TD (of 21 yards, on a short field following an Iowa interception). "There's a linebacker and he jumped up, and I'm like, 'Oh, s***.' And it went over his head". Penn State will have more challenges to come and opportunities to prove if they deserve to be called great as the season goes on (Michigan, at Ohio State being the two most notable games to come next month.) But they proved they are capable of responding when backed up against the wall. "There are a lot of things I'm going to see, and that I already know now, and I haven't even seen the film that I need to improve on", Nelson said. Well, he got to it. The rest of the group was OK, but someone is going to have to be more consistent.

Da'Ron Payne, DT, Alabama - The projected first-round pick helped the Crimson Tide shut out Vanderbilt in Nashville, holding the Commodores to just 78 total yards.

As the clock waned, it was on the quarterback to guide his teammates to victory.

It's not easy to go win on the road in the Big Ten and Iowa is far from the easiest place to do so.

You'll struggle to find examples of college players, aside from quarterbacks, having a bigger impact on an offense than Barkley did over the course of the 60 minutes.
