Penn State with literal walk-off win over Iowa

Now, he's helping starter Trace McSorley any way he can. The crowd will be alive at Kinnick Stadium for what should be a physical football game.

It has been one year since Penn State's last regular-season loss, a 49-10 rout to MI in Week 4 of 2016. The sophomore caught the game-winning touchdown and had seven catches.

"It's in his job description, pass protection", Franklin said.

Barkley had 305 total yards rushing and receiving on 40 touches. His previous career best was 207.

"Look at any good season, there's always one game where your team has to gut it out and find a way to get a win, and we were able to do that", says head coach James Franklin.

"That was a Heisman-like performance". He completed 31-of-48 passes for 284 yards on the night, while rushing for 61 yards on 17 attempts. On the first play, and the first play the Hawkeyes ran in Penn State territory, Stanley connected with Nick Easley for a touchdown and a 7-5 Iowa lead. The Hawkeyes hadn't even crossed midfield in the half until that interception and 33-yard return by linebacker Josey Jewell.

"A couple of times we picked them up, when Trace had that fumble and they blocked our field goals", Cabinda said. But on fourth down, McSorley stood strong in the pocket and drilled the ball through a crowded end zone and into Johnson's chest.

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. It all included as many highlights as you'd expect from the nation's best running back. "They execute it very well, but our guys kept battling and gave us a chance to win the football game".

The final drive ensured that a legendary night from Barkley would not be wasted.

"I'm trying to think of the last time we played a back like this, other than a year ago", Ferentz said, referring to Barkley's 167-yard game against the Hawkeyes. Before the Nittany Lions took the field for that final drive, Johnson and wide receivers coach Josh Gattis discussed the possibility of a post working against the Iowa defense. Eleven seconds to play.

Penn State 8, Iowa 7: Saquon Barkley had a 25-yard carry then a 16-yarder to set up first-and-goal at the 2.

That quick first step and exceptional athleticism separates Barkley from his peers.

Barkley rushed for 211 yards and a touchdown in the 21-19 Nittany Lion victory. The Hawkeyes went for two, but PSU's Troy Apke broke up the pass.

Freddie Swain caught a 5-yard touchdown pass from backup quarterback Luke Del Rio with 43 seconds remaining to cap No. 20 Florida's rally from a 13-point, fourth-quarter deficit that beat Kentucky 28-27 on Saturday night.

But as was the case in the first half, the Nittany Lions couldn't parlay chunk gains into points that would have provided peace of mind.

Half empty: OK, let's dive into the numbers and see if there's a bit of a growing concern with the overall offense and passing attack.

Time to give Penn State's defense its due. Barkley was an 18-wheeler driving through a swarm of gnats.

Half empty: It's nearly inconceivable given those numbers above that PSU scored only 21 points, and was stuck on 15 until the last play of the game.
