Penn State Wins Thriller Against Iowa With Time Expiring

"For us, opening at Iowa is going to be a challenge, but that's a challenge that we're going to accept", wide receiver Brandon Polk said.

Barkley finished with 211 yards on 28 carries (7.5 YPC) and 305 total yards. His previous career best was 207.

"I've never been there", Franklin said.

For all the gaudy raw numbers, McSorley threw for less than six yards per attempt, and how many of those were due to without Barkley's yards-after-catch genius? I want to apologize to (Iowa) coach (Kirk) Ferentz, to (linebacker) Josey Jewell, their quarterback (Nathan Stanley), their entire team. 1-0 Big Ten) avoiding the same fate that met the 2008 team (ranked No. 3) when they were upset by the home-standing Hawkeyes (3-1, 0-1 Big Ten) by a final score of 24-23 on a last-second field goal. But on fourth down, McSorley stood strong in the pocket and drilled the ball through a crowded end zone and into Johnson's chest. That should help boost the Lions' running game, which surprisingly was held in check by Georgia State as it loaded up to stop Barkley.

Although Penn State's 10-game streak of scoring 30 plus points came to an end, it wasn't for a lack of being able to move the ball. The Wolverines allowed just 12 yards to Purdue's rejuvenated offense during the second half on Saturday. Albrecht added back-to-back kills for match point, and the Huskers clinched the sweep on her 19th and final kill of the night.

"Night games at Kinnick are just awesome, " Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said.

Penn State guard Brendan Mahon, who sat out Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury, will be back in action this week, Franklin said. A Big Ten program playing better than they had in generations, heading into Iowa City as a favorite in a night game, sees their entire team slip into neutral under the lights at Kinnick Stadium. While there wasn't a player of Saquon Barkley's caliber on the field for Penn State in that game, you can bet he'll be a factor in this one. But PSU failed to reach the end zone on two runs and then an incompletion by McSorley, so it settled for a 21-yard field goal by Davis with 10:43 to go in the third.

In terms of giving up points, Penn State's defense has gone from literally worst to nearly first.

The decision was warmly welcomed by Ghani; but there isn't a lot of support back home for extending the war in Afghanistan. The Trump administration in August infuriated Pakistan by accusing it of providing extremists haven.

At minimum, it's an equal three-part debate with Darnold and Mayfield for the Heisman Trophy, and the Darnold-Barkley talk could easily carry over to the 2018 NFL Draft, depending on what NFL teams in that position need.

The decision to pitch the ball back to Akrum Wadley on a second-and-eight play from the Iowa 3-yard line was freakish at best. He intercepted a pass and broke up two others.

Barkley's 8-yard scamper midway through the third period gave the Nittany Lions a little breathing room at 15-7.

Half empty: OK, let's dive into the numbers and see if there's a bit of a growing concern with the overall offense and passing attack.

Penn State 21, Iowa 19: The Lions drove 80 yards in 96 seconds, converting a fourth-and-2 at their own 40 on a quick slant from McSorley to Saeed Blacknall. Barkley was an 18-wheeler driving through a swarm of gnats. On fourth-and-goal with 4 seconds left, McSorley found Johnson in the middle of the end zone for the game victor as time expired.
