Hawkeyes stun imperfect Penn State


Greene — with Iowa’s student section decked out in green shirts in honor of the nation’s third-leading rusher — made Penn State pay just two plays later, scoring on a 14-yard touchdown run that put Iowa ahead 7-0.

The Nittany Lions were shooting for their first 10-0 start since 1994 — incidentally, the last time Penn State went undefeated but didn’t win it all — but with home games against Indiana and Michigan State left, a Big Ten title is still Penn State’s to lose.

“Their balloon still isn’t busted,” Paterno said. “If we win the next two we’ll have an opportunity to go to a big bowl.”
