Prime Time Face Off Against Iowa!

Initially reported by KCRG of Cedar Rapids, the Iowa Hawkeyes will play host to Penn State in yet another prime time showdown. The Big Ten opener, which is slated to start at 7:05 p.m. on October 2, 2010, will mark another chapter in this evolving rivalry.

The Nittany Lion-Hawkeye match-up has quickly become a highlight on the Big Ten schedule, so it comes to no surprise that it garnered this slot once again.

Penn State will be looking to avoid a third-straight loss to the boys from Iowa, while Iowa hopes to continue its dominance over Evan Royster and company.

Once again, this contest could have national championship implications if both teams are unbeaten at game time. Unlike past years, though, each team faces out-of-conference buzz-saws prior to this game that could complicate matters.

The Hawkeyes face Pac-10 foe Arizona for their Week 2 game, while Penn State travels to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, to face the defending national champions. Penn State’s highly touted match-up with ‘Bama should prepare them for Iowa and the rest of the Big Ten schedule.

The first stop of the road trip was in Lansing Friday night where they mauled the Spartans 30-9. Then they headed back to Ann Arbor for a 28-13 beating of the Wolverines.
