Penn State defeats Iowa in the rain

Penn State Football: Week 8 Studs and Duds against Indiana

McSorley underthrew the middle and was intercepted in the fourth quarter by Geno Scott, who returned 24 yards for a touchdown that pulled the Hawkeyes within 27-24 with 10 minutes to play.

Or is that Trace McSore-ly, given his knee injury that temporarily sidelined him on Saturday vs. Iowa?

Maybe Iowa has more tricks in the bag.

The senior quarterback, barely 6-feet tall and 200 pounds but able to carry Penn State's offense, has started 35 straight games and only has two more left at Beaver Stadium. He entered the game having missed on all three of his field goal attempts of over 40 yards. His pass line wasn't pretty in the first half, but he did rip off a touchdown run to kick off the second half, sprinting 51 yards to give the Nittany Lions a 24-17 lead at Beaver Stadium in University Park, PA.

That puts behind him only behind only Todd Blackledge, Chuck Fusina and Tony Sacca - each at 29 wins - on the all-time list in the 132-year history of Penn State football.

Iowa's run defense held Penn State to fewer than 100 yards, the sixth time the Hawkeyes have done so this season.

On fourth-and-10 with 7 seconds remaining, Penn State's pass rush swarmed Nate Stanley, who flipped backward to offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs.

Shepherd, a 24-year-old woman who lives in rural Rochester - on Tuesday afternoon, state police said in a news release . But as the kids attempted to cross the street, they were struck by Shepherd's 2017 Toyota Tacoma, according to police.

Trailing 30-24 in the fourth quarter, Iowa drove to first-and-goal at the 3 with 3:30 left. Tight end Noah Fant seemed to be trying to tell one of his teammates that the original play was off.

The game was as wild and wacky as they come. "I just tried to rush it with the play clock running down".

Scott jumped up and made the interception.

It should provide some insight into his preparations this week for Penn State's game on Saturday against fifth-ranked, 7-1 MI.

"One of the good things about today was we were able to come out on the positive end of one of these games", McSorley said.

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.

Catch it, will ya: Blake Gillikin dropped his first snap of the game, leading to a blocked punt for a safety that gave Iowa a 2-0 lead on the game's first possession.
