Stanley and Iowa offense struggle in loss to Penn State

May JohnsonNov 01, 2018

If Penn State lost the game to Iowa, there was a good chance their season could spin out of control with MI and Wisconsin left on the docket. He was not about to sit out the second half of this one.

It was a valiant effort that capped a cold, sloppy, back-and-forth afternoon, out of which Penn State emerged with a 30-24 win in Happy Valley that prevented a potential mini-spiral in State College and brought some clarity to the Big Ten West picture. The Nittany Lions drove down into Hawkeye territory following the interception, but the defense stayed resilient, forcing a field goal.

Penn State's special teams unit looked unprepared for the weather early in the game. In a weird trick play, Iowa punter Colten Rastetter threw a attractive 10-yard pass to. a defensive lineman? Yep.

Many expected the game to be a shootout, with lots of points scored, with Penn State ultimately finding a way to pull it out in the second half. The Beaver Stadium crowd fell silent as athletic trainers attended to him.

Miles Sanders #24 of the Penn State Nittany Lions runs the ball into the end zone for a one-yard touchdown in the first quarter of the game against the Indiana Hoosiers at Memorial Stadium on October 20, 2018 in Bloomington, Indiana.

Update: McSorley returned a couple of series later with a limp. No. 2 behind Sacca is Christian Hackenberg, with 38 starts - 12 in 2013 under head coach Bill O'Brien, then 13 under Franklin in both 2014 and '15. "When I step back - I just look at this team since January". I can't just have a pro-style quarterback. "I do not care what anyone says because he is as tough as it gets".

Wearing a knee brace, McSorley delivered. He entered the game having missed on all three of his field goal attempts of over 40 yards. "I just tried to rush it with the play clock running down". Doing anything you can outside of football, outside of practice to be able to keep your body in good shape and investing in your body to be able to make sure that you can come in and take that kind of load.

"This one's going to hurt", Ferentz said. They last lost three straight at home in 2015.

Blackledge led Penn State to its first national championship in 1982, and as a starter he was 29-4, with records of 8-1, 10-2, and 11-2 from 1980-82. All the way out? After this weekend, however, Northwestern sits at the top at 5-1 following a convincing 31-17 win over Wisconsin.

PASSING-Iowa, Rastetter 1-1-0-10, Stanley 18-49-2-205.
