Penn State suffered their first loss of the season after falling to Iowa 23-20. I was debating even looking at the Twitter mentions but did not want to be accused of faking an injury. It was a frustrating loss and the Twitter mentions were what you have come to expect after a loss.

Fans were excited leading up to the big game.

After an early interception by Sean Clifford, Penn State drove down the field by controlling the tempo.

Iowa fans booed injured Penn State players and now they are accusing Penn State of faking injuries. Iowa fans are also unfamiliar with offensive momentum so this was all new to them.

After Sean Clifford was injured, Penn State snuck into the locker room with a 17-10 lead at the half.

Between a hurt starting quarterback and the false starts, it was a frustrating second half.

We are back to firing everyone now.

Weirdo fanbase.

Jack was very mad online.

There were so many tweets like this.

Once again Sue remains positive and that is how we'll end it this week. We now wait to see if we have updates on Sean Clifford and the other players' injuries. Tough loss, but opportunity ahead to get some good wins.
