Are The Hawkeyes Any Good?

The Nittany Lions travel to Iowa Saturday to play the Hawkeyes. Iowa has four losses by a total of 12 points. Yes, put those four losses together and the number is only 12, including a 21-20 loss to Pitt. Iowa, like Penn State crushed Wisconsin but lost last week to Illinois 27-24, a team Penn State beat. Strangely, they are the only two teams that each has faced. We need another team in the Big 11 to get rid of this unbalanced schedule. The Lions must be careful here, especially on the road. This will be the twelfth meeting between the schools since Penn State joined the Big 11. For some reason the only one that sticks in my mind was in 2004. That was the game when Iowa was taking safety's just to put Penn State's horrible offense back on the field. It worked, resulting in a 6-4 win for the Hawkeyes. Still to this day the worst game I ever watched. This Penn State team is MUCH better and the offense is MUCH better. Keep an eye out for Iowa's running back Shonn Greene. He will definitely be playing on Sundays.
