Fresh off of back-to-back drubbings of Maryland and Purdue to open their Big Ten slate, Penn State will now gear up to head to Iowa City to take on the Hawkeyes in a top-25 matchup. Despite the fact that the No. 10 Nittany Lions will be on the road, they are opening the week as a 3.5-point favorite over No. 17 Iowa.

The Hawkeyes will be looking to rebound after falling 10-3 to Michigan in a defensive slugfest. Penn State had owned this series recently, winning the last five meetings between the two. Kickoff is set for Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET.
