Penn State with literal walk-off win over Iowa

Penn State with literal walk-off win over Iowa”

"In Big Ten play, having to scratch and claw, beat up all game, and having a bunch of different guys step up with their roles, and still be able to prevail and persist, I think we can definitely draw from that", adds quarterback Trace McSorley. McSorley looked over the Hawkeyes' defense, saw something he liked, ran up to the line and appeared to call an audible.

Fourth-ranked Penn State begins defense of the Big Ten football championship it won a year ago with a night game at Iowa, which hopes to recapture the magic it had in upsetting second-rated MI under the lights at Kinnick Stadium last season.

"That place is going to be rocking Saturday night", coach James Franklin said.

Penn State got the ball back with only 1:42 left on the clock, though they had two timeouts left. Their usually potent offense, which had scored at least 30 points in 10 straight games, was stuck on 15 points in the closing minutes.

Penn State's James Franklin hasn't coached at Kinnick Stadium before - but he knows how risky the Hawkeyes can be at home after dark.

The Hawkeyes turned a short pass to running back Akrum Wadley into a 70-yard score with 10:02 left to close within 15-13.

Penn State outgained Iowa 579-273. Its defensive coordinator than, Tom Allen, is its head coach now. It was Wadley who again came up big with a touchdown run that gave Iowa the lead, 19-3. "We stuck to what we know".

Allen said the Penn State offense is going to be hard to stop. It is worth noting that the team did have two timeouts left. Josey Jewell made so many tackles (16) that he passed four Iowa players in one night on the team's all-time list.

Del Rio, who relieved Feleipe Franks in the second half, completed 9 of 14 passes for 74 yards. Things changed quickly in the fourth quarter, though. "You let go and you let God happen".

Trace McSorley made his share of mistakes. "So I kinda try to use that to my advantage", Barkley said.

This season, Barkley has accounted for 300+ yards on 38 attempts with three touchdowns. His previous career best was 207.

The fight will also be made available for purchases to view online from the BoxNation .com website on desktop and mobile devices. That was suffered by Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 knockouts) in 2013 against Mayweather in a fight he admitted he was too young to take.

The final numbers for Saquon Barkley-a.k.a. "Superman"-were staggering: 211 yards rushing on 28 carries with a touchdown; 12 catches for 94 yards".

"I can't take credit for the performance I had today". But on fourth down, McSorley stood strong in the pocket and drilled the ball through a crowded end zone and into Johnson's chest.

Da'Ron Payne, DT, Alabama - The projected first-round pick helped the Crimson Tide shut out Vanderbilt in Nashville, holding the Commodores to just 78 total yards. 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.

Why he's top-five: Despite losing in convincing fashion against TCU this past week, Mason Rudolph will remain in the Heisman hunt so long as he can remain just a one-loss quarterback before his game against Oklahoma.

The final drive ensured that a legendary night from Barkley would not be wasted.

Or 1994, when Penn State went 96 yards to beat IL and preserve an undefeated season. In the second set alone, Holman and Albrecht combined for 12 kills and teamed up for two blocks. Mayfield's next chance to improve his odds will be at home against Iowa State on October 7.

After the safety, Penn State took the ball and drove to the Iowa 32-yard line where the Nittany Lions failed to convert on fourth down. Eleven seconds to play. He finished with three catches for 105 yards in the Buckeyes' 54-21 win over UNLV.

Half full: Penn State's defense has allowed 33 points.

That quick first step and exceptional athleticism separates Barkley from his peers.

Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M - The junior finally broke out thanks in part to a 81-yard TD pass from Kellen Mond in a win over Arkansas. And, honestly, this is a game Penn State deserved to win. Barkley scored the game-winner on a wheel-route reception out of the backfield, racing past Wisconsin linebacker T.J. Watt.
