PICK: PSU 23, IOWA 19

The Morning Call - - SPORTS -

Mark Wo­gen­rich: This looks like a dou­ble-digit Penn State win, con­sid­er­ing the matchup skews heav­ily in its fa­vor. The Lions are just wait­ing to show­case their run-stop­ping skill and de­fen­sive pres­sure against Iowa, whose of­fense can’t han­dle ei­ther. And Penn State’s of­fen­sive speed is too great and deep for the Hawkeyes.

Still, Iowa has beaten ex­pec­ta­tions be­fore, no­tably against No. 2 Michi­gan in 2016 and No. 3 Ohio State in 2017. Night games at Kin­nick Sta­dium are spooky. So in­stead, ex­pect a nail-biter that, per­haps, could be de­cided by Penn State’s kicker from Iowa.
