Saquon Barkley turned in an eye-catching performance in win over Iowa

Sizing up Big Ten football as we (kinda) launch into conference season

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

Trace McSorley got famous throwing footballs over defenses. Franklin didn't even flinch when he was asked about that play-call and Barkley's role in it after the game. With Iowa bracketing tight end Mike Gesicki, Juwan Johnson showed up with seven catches for 92 yards and obviously the game-winning touchdown. His previous career best was 207. He rushed for 211 yards, led Penn State with 94 receiving yards, scored a touchdown and set a school record with 358 all-purpose yards.

But to find the last time the Nittany Lions won a game with a touchdown on the final play of regulation, you have to go all the way back to 1929.

"That was a Heisman-like performance. I thought their quarterback really stepped up in that possession", Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said. Trace McSorley continued a record season, passing for 284 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

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.

The other three of those ended in a missed field goal, a blocked field goal and a punt. In addition, he entered the end zone on an impressive showing of footwork.

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. Having your star running back tote the rock 28 times is a good start. The Spartans threatened to pull within 21-14 until their third and costliest turnover of the first half, an L.J. Scott fumble at the goal line that took six points off the board and handed Notre Dame the ball at the 20-yard line.

"Coach Moorhead found different ways to get him the ball without handing it to him", Huff said, "which still allows your elite players to have an effect on the game".

Page Six also confirmed the news, reporting that the young star was around four months pregnant. "Her family really likes him". TMZ reports that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians sister and her boyfriend, Travis Scott , are about to become parents.

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

"Mostly that's just instinct", Barkley said. The Hawkeyes are just 1-2 against the spread and are an underdog for the first time this season. Mayfield's next chance to improve his odds will be at home against Iowa State on October 7.

This week Penn State will be on the road in a tough environment against a Big Ten rival with plenty at stake.

With Penn State lurking behind the scenes after a starting the season with a soft schedule, many forgot just how special Saquon Barkley is as a college runner.

Jewell went 33 yards before being taken down at the 21.

The Nittany Lions have prepared with plenty of loud music on the practice field this week, attempting to simulate the environment that will greet Penn State tonight.

Barkley's quick first-step punished the Hawkeyes on the edge. They finally made it to the end zone when Barkley scored from 8 yards out with 5:16 left in the quarter.

Barkley ranks fifth in the Big Ten in both rushing yards (102.3 per game) and receiving yards (80.3), making him the conference's most unsafe player with the ball. The Hawkeyes went for two, but PSU's Troy Apke broke up the pass. Stanley completed 13 of 22 passes for 191 yards and two scores.
