Penn State and Iowa will face off in a Big Ten battle at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at Kinnick Stadium. Both teams have allowed few points on average (the Nittany Lions 7.4, Iowa 8.8), so any points scored will be well earned.

QB Sean Clifford was slinging it as he passed for 264 yards and three TDs on 29 attempts. Near the top of the highlight reel was Clifford's 72-yard TD bomb to WR Jahan Dotson in the first quarter.

Meanwhile, after soaring to 48 points the game before, Iowa faltered in their matchup last week. They took a 10-3 hit to the loss column at the hands of Michigan. Iowa's loss signaled the end of their four-game winning streak.

Penn State's victory lifted them to 5-0 while Iowa's defeat dropped them down to 4-1.
