He didn't touch the ball on the final four plays of the game.
Instead, focus on the job the Nittany Lions' defense did against the Hawkeyes. The Nittany Lions got within 18-17, but Stivrins came up big as she did all night to give the Huskers a two-point edge again. "This is what we do".
Coaching: They'll have to make the Nittany Lions a more physical team on offense, somehow.
Still, Penn State is a 12-point favorite for a reason.
He had yet another impressive game in his senior campaign, posting 16 tackles - 11 solo and 3 for a loss - 2 pass breakups, an interception, and a fumble recovery.
Here's what we learned from Penn State's 21-19 win over Iowa last Saturday.
One drive with an ending that'll be remembered for years to come.
"I mean this with all due respect to Akrum, but we're talking about Barkley being one of the guys that's going to be I would imagine a top-five pick", Ferentz said. "Take care of what we can control, and you know, it will work out". If Iowa cannot hamper Barkley and the very mobile Trace McSorely, this game could get very out of hand.
The Nittany Lions' defense and the special teams have also maintained the balance through the games. Iowa totaled 219 of those yards in the second half though as they rallied from a 15-7 deficit with two fourth-quarter touchdowns. We want to get our players prepared for that. Trace McSorley continued a record season, passing for 284 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
How to Watch Alaves vs. Real Madrid
Cristiano Ronaldo is back, and played in the defeat against Real Betis, but will be hoping for more success this afternoon. Alaves , who came into the goal without a point or a goal this season, equalised through Manu Garcia's header.
Penn State got the ball back with only 1:42 left on the clock, though they had two timeouts left. His 211 rushing yards are tied for 15th in Penn State history, along with Lydell Mitchell (1971), Curtis Enis (1997) and Eric McCoo (1999). The Nittany Lions outgained the Hawkeyes, 579-273.
"This season we found our mojo", Allen said. Then he missed high on a throw to DeAndre Thompkins and a tunnel screen to DaeSean Hamilton was batted down. Penn State scored on a pair of field goals and a safety before the team managed to cross the goal line. James Franklin burned his final timeout.
But McSorley, Barkley and friends managed to go the length of the field to score the winning TD.
"We've got to get ready for the noise". With the loss went a chance to prove they could win a marquee game and reach a lofty status in the SEC.
Offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead made the call during the timeout.
Penn State has looked about as good as anyone three weeks into the season.
An early candidate for the Big Ten's game of the year solidified Penn State's status atop our power rankings this week. Given how the night went it shows how mentally strong this version of Penn State is. I've said all I can say.
Adjusting on the fly and drawing up a new version of the play, it was truly backyard football. The Nittany Lions move forward having conquered a feisty league opponent.
Catch it, will ya: Brandon Polk dropped a completion that would have sustained a Penn State possession in the second quarter. Johnson and Hamilton were running crossing post patterns, and McSorley fit the ball in a "windshield wiper" window. But truth be told, I'm such a big believer in the offense, in Barkley and in Moorhead to conclude that the impressive numbers we saw Saturday will lead to a lot of huge point totals and easy wins from here on out.
