A game that began with the promise and excitement of a top 5 matchup for your Penn State Nittany Lions rapidly devolved into a frustrating and dispiriting war of attrition that ended, as nearly all such games at Kinnick Stadium do, in an agonizingly close loss to the Iowa Hawkeyes. As one key Lion after another limped to the sidelines, the only thing more miserable than the mounting injury toll was the behavior of Iowa’s fans when players went down. But what’s done is done. Penn State has lost its chance at an unblemished season, but opportunities for redemption await. Though questions abound, the upcoming bye week affords James Franklin, his staff, and their players the time to find the answers. The second half of the schedule will tell the tale of 2021, and we’ll help you flush the latest edition in the godawful saga of Penn State versus Iowa and go on to the next.
