Penn State survives Iowa with touchdown on the final play

Associated Press

That place is going to be rocking Saturday night.

"How many has he missed now, two this year?"

We'll have up-to-the-minute scoring and stats here throughout the game. He's really good at that, obviously, but we're going to need to help him.

"Trace is one of the toughest guys I've ever been around", Franklin said.

The thing about Barkley is, he never stops moving his legs. Barkley leads Penn State in receiving yards (241), with 85 of those coming on his touchdown catch against Georgia State, the team's longest pass play at Beaver Stadium. He had a team-high 12 catches for 94 yards. McSorley was 18 of 23 with five touchdowns last week. "He got open a little quicker than I thought, which is why I had to step my foot in and just rifle it in there". This play by Barkley would loom large because he once again showed the ability to tack on offensive yards nearly out of nowhere.

"I'll always be grateful to coach (Reese) Morgan and coach (Kirk) Ferentz for driving down those gravel roads to recruit me at time when nobody else was willing to take a look at me, " Greenway said. But we will have to move on. He finished with two tackles for loss and tackled Iowa standout Akrum Wadley for a safety in the second quarter. "They're good during the morning games, too, but when those night games come around and we give them something to cheer for, it's pretty special". Not only did Iowa throw a curve ball their way in 2008, but the Hawkeyes also upset the No. 5 Nittany Lions at the end of September in 2009.

Don't expect Iowa to find much on the ground, because Penn State will load up on Wadley and James Butler, but Stanley is an accurate passer who could find some plays through the air.

Toward the end of the third period, he was sacked by A.J. Epenesa and fumbled on the Iowa 45. He blocked a 36-yard field goal attempt by Miguel Recinos in the second half, points that proved to be important. "He's a phenomenal player", Ferentz said.

You can make it loop, you can make it toggle backwards and forwards through time, or even create a "long exposure" effect. But the "major update" to the operating system hasn't been without its teething and compatibility issues.

Q: What would you order for your last meal on earth?

The first half was a particular slog. If they are able to do the same against Iowa on Saturday and give a boost to an already electric offense, Penn State should cruise to victory. Iowa will try to slow a confident Penn State team that has won the last three matchups in this series dating back to 2011, including a 41-14 blowout win for the Nittany Lions in Penn State a year ago.

Shareef Miller came of age when Penn State's defense needed him the most. The Hawkeyes had only one first down until the 4:34 mark of the second period.

Watch that video with the sound on, and you can hear the life get sucked out of Kinnick Stadium. In other words, he accounted for every play and every yard in the 12-play, 80-yard game-winning TD drive. Barkley was unstoppable and Penn State's defense was brilliant. Notre Dame is rushing for an insane 330 ypg, led by running back Josh Adams and the more-than-capable Brandon Wimbush at quarterback. On the next play, and the first play the Hawkeyes ran in Penn State territory, Stanley connected with Nick Easley for a touchdown and a 7-5 Iowa lead.

Whatever happens with Penn State's schedule, the most shocking upset after four games would be if Barkley is not heading to New York City as a Heisman Trophy finalist.

Only Vanderbilt has stingier than Penn State's defense, which has allowed just 4.7 points a game.

True freshman Sean Clifford made the trip as Penn State's No. 3 quarterback.

Hawkeyes fans are getting used to these kinds of nights.

. The Nittany Lions had given up only two touchdowns in their first three games.
