Penn State with literal walk-off win over Iowa

Trace McSorley apologized profusely for kicking the football into the air at the end of Penn State's dramatic 21-19 victory over Iowa Saturday night.

One thing Iowa is known for is its pink visiting locker room, created to have some sort of psychological effect on the opposing players. McSorley connected with Saeed Blacknall on a quick slant to the left for 6 yards and a first down. Offensively, Iowa is averaging 33 points and 398.3 yards per game. Although, don't take my word for it, I said this a year ago against MI, and well, we won.

McSorley threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Juwan Johnson as time expired in the Big Ten opener.

"A couple of times we picked them up, when Trace had that fumble and they blocked our field goals", Cabinda said.

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

The Nittany Lions are just one of two teams in the FBS that has not given up a point in the first quarter in 2017.

"I can not imagine that there's a better player in all of college football", Penn State coach James Franklin said after the game. His 211 rushing yards are tied for 15th in Penn State history, along with Lydell Mitchell (1971), Curtis Enis (1997) and Eric McCoo (1999). That's 40 offensive touches at a clip of just over 7.5 yards per. If Kutcher were investing in college players, you get the feeling he'd be all in on Barkley - the way he's been on Spotify, Airbnb, Uber and others. The Hawkeyes came back against Wyoming, Iowa State and North Texas to start 3-0 on the season, including coming back from 10 points down to beat the in-state rival Cyclones.

They could have seen maybe the best running back in the country go up against one of the best linebackers.

Until the final 96 seconds, when McSorley, Barkley and Johnson saved the day with a memorable scoring drive. In a 21-0 hole early on the road against a tough IL defense, the star-loaded Penn State offense slowly clawed their way back to a victory to preserve their undefeated season and keep Penn State in the driver's seat for the school's first Big Ten championship.

Barkley played like the Heisman Trophy candidate he is widely considered to be, and Penn State needed the Heisman-esque performance in this one.

Penn State grabbed the lead early in the second half and had multiple chances to increase the margin, but the Iowa defense kept holding them off.

"Of course it was frustrating; we were working hard, and we just wanted to play complementary football", Wadley said.

Sisi applauded efforts exerted by the United Nations chief since he took the office, presidential spokesman Alaa Youssef reported. There were reports Mr Netanyahu and his team were dismayed that Mr Trump emphasised the issue during the meeting.

Barkley's quick first-step punished the Hawkeyes on the edge.

Iowa 19, Penn State 15: The Hawkeyes got a pass interference call on PSU's Marcus Allen and a 22-yard pass from Stanley to Matt VandeBerg to move into Lions' territory.

Barkley caught 28 passes past year, the most memorable in the Big Ten championship game against Wisconsin.

Best effort: Iowa safety Amani Hooker stopped Barkley in the open field after a 12-yard gain at the Hawkeyes' 10, saving a touchdown and leading to a first-quarter field goal.

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.

The preseason all-American played like one against Penn State.
