On the heels of their 62-24 win over Purdue last week — and their highest-scoring game since 2008 — Penn State looks to win four in a row Saturday.
While the Iowa Hawkeyes lost to Wisconsin last week, they have won their past nine road gamesand five of the last seven in Happy Valley.
The Lions have a 13-12 lead in their all-time series against the Hawkeyes.
Who to watch:
Penn State’s Saquon Barkley: The 19-year-old running back leads the Big Ten with 888 yards this season. He had 207 yards last week, a career high and the second time in three games he broke 200.
Iowa’s Josey Jewell: The linebacker, 21, is second in the Big Ten in tackles with 77 and on Monday was named one of the 12 semifinalists for the Butkus Award, which goes to the top linebacker in college football.
