Penn State vs. Iowa 9/23/17

Penn State vs. Iowa 9/23/17

McSorley stood strong in the pocket, looked over the middle and tossed a laser between a pair of Iowa defenders.

Trace McSorley made his share of mistakes.

The Nittany Lions' defense and the special teams have also maintained the balance through the games.

Take his first career touchdown catch - which sparked Penn State's 52-0 rout of Georgia State on Saturday - as an example.

"We were able to continue pushing", McSorley said, "getting better and better". His previous career best was 207.

"But you look at (Penn State's) surrounding cast, the supporting cast, their entire offense, man for man, 11 guys, there's a reason why they won the championship last year and why they had such a good year".

However, he only put up 14 reps on the bench press at the Combine, so he could stand to get stronger before he sees the field. Take a deep breath: The Giants have a long way to go to equal the team record of 17 consecutive games not scoring 20 points.

"That was a Heisman-like performance".

"I've never been there", Franklin said. McSorley completed 31 of 48 passes for 284 yards and the one touchdown.

Through the first half, Iowa gave up just 5 points 2 on a safety - even though the Lions made it into Iowa territory six times.

The match against Iowa will come in the midst of a four away-game stretch for the Huskers, as they travel to Purdue, Indiana, Iowa and Northwestern in a span of nine days in October.

Kicker Miguel Recinos had what proved to be a critical 36-yard field goal try blocked on the fourth snap of the fourth quarter and punter Colten Rastetter dealt with good and bad. In addition, he entered the end zone on an impressive showing of footwork.

The last time Penn State won on the final play of regulation came just three years ago when Sam Ficken kicked a 36-yard field goal to beat Central Florida 26-24 at Dublin, Ireland. After all, they've allowed just one touchdown.

Until the final 96 seconds, when McSorley, Barkley and Johnson saved the day with a memorable scoring drive.

"Of course it was frustrating; we were working hard, and we just wanted to play complementary football", Wadley said.

The former IN high school standout entered Penn State with sub-4.7 40-yard-dash speed and his long strides coupled with his cutting ability made him a good dual-threat candidate to lead Moorhead's offense.

Though Iowa was probably lucky to pull ahead despite repeatedly going nowhere with the ball in its hands, its results on the other side of the line of scrimmage through two quarters were close to ideal.

Penn State grabbed the lead early in the second half and had multiple chances to increase the margin, but the Iowa defense kept holding them off. Penn State improves to 11-1 (1-1 Big Ten) on the year and will return to the court when they host IL on September 29th. Eleven seconds to play. Outside of star running back Saquon Barkley, it wasn't always pretty for Penn State on the road. He finished with three catches for 105 yards in the Buckeyes' 54-21 win over UNLV.

Penn State football tickets are on sale now. Barkley broke off a highlight-reel 44-yard run down the left sideline, and the Lions later got another first-and-goal, this time from the 10. For that, they have nobody to thank but Saquon Barkley.

Seoul's Meteorological Administration assessed the quake as natural, while China called the earthquake a "suspected explosion".

Don't let a pair of breakdowns that resulted in two long touchdowns for Iowa's Akrum Wadley distract you from the fact that those two plays accounted for almost 40% of Iowa's total yardage all night. He's 13th nationally with 170 all-purpose yards per game, which included a 46-yard catch and run for a touchdown that forced overtime in Iowa's 44-41 win at Iowa State. The Hawkeyes went for two again, but Stanley's pass was incomplete. Barkley scored the game-winner on a wheel-route reception out of the backfield, racing past Wisconsin linebacker T.J. Watt.
