Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says Penn State is talented, experienced and well coached and that is why the third rated Nittany Lions head to Iowa City unbeaten on the season. Ferentz says Penn State has dominated in nearly every phase and comes into this week having committed only eight turnovers all season. He says another stat is that they’ve scored 47 touchdowns, while only giving up 11.
Fetentz says his team will have to be at its best to win the game. The Nittany Lions rarely make a mistake. They went without a penalty in their recent victory at Ohio State. He says that’s one of the most impressive things that he’s seen from Penn State in a lot of impressive things they did. Ferentz says that indicates the team is extremely disciplined.
Ferentz coached Iowa teams have done well against Penn State but he says this will be the best one they have faced. Ferentz says this is a much stronger team than the second ranked team that they played in 1999. He says Penn State could even be ranked higher.
Iowa is 5-4 overall and 2-3 in the Big Ten after a loss at Illinois.
