Penn State scored the only 10 points of the third quarter and led 15-7 after three, but saw the Hawkeyes come back to take the lead.

"We are going to have to get continued contributions from some of the younger guys". They've done this for most of their other road games in recent years, too, though some places are more hard to play in than others.
Iowa relied on a pair of Freshman running backs in Torey Young and Ivory Kelly-Martin to carry the load offensively in the second half, after injuries ended the day for lead backs James Butler and Akrum Wadley.
