The Iowa Hawkeyes open the Big Ten race at Penn State. The Hawks enter the league race with a record of 3-1. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says they’ve only played one road game at Iowa State and didn’t handle that very well, so it will be a challenge.
Penn State’s offense has struggled in a 4-1 start but Ferentz says the defense is solid led by a veteran line and secondary.
He says they have size and depth in their defensive front and are only giving up 12 points a game. Penn State has not decided on a starting quarterback and have been using Rob Bolden and Matt McGloin. Ferentz says both have done some good things, so there’s not a lot of difference between them.
