Final Score: Penn State 38, Iowa 14,

The score doesn't do justice to how badly Iowa played this game.

After three quarters, the score was 31-0. To add insult to injury, Iowa likely lost two starting offensive linemen—Brandon Scherff and Andrew Donnal—for the year, and had a host of other minor injuries.

The passing game continues to sputter and it seems new defensive coordinator Phil Parker has even fewer answers than his predecessor to a precision, finesse-heavy offense.

Meanwhile, PSU quarterback Matt McGloin played a great game, consistently scanning the field and finding open receivers, of which there were plenty.
