The Nittany Lions and Iowa Hawkeyes will be meeting for the 22nd time on Saturday. If history is any indication, this game will either be ridiculously close or a blowout of mass proportions.
Penn State has a small edge in the overall series at an 11-10, but when you compare the coaching records against each other you see a different story. Joe Paterno is 11-9 against the Hawkeyes. Kirk Ferentz is 6-2 against the Nittany Lions.
The visiting team has won 13 out of 21 games in this series. Penn State won the last meeting in Beaver Stadium in 2007, 27-7, but the Hawkeyes won last year in Iowa City, 24-23.
So, in the spirit of the upcoming 22nd battle of these two teams, I present you with the six greatest Iowa-Penn State games of all time.
Note: Sadly, none of these games are in The Big Ten's Greatest Games, thus providing further evidence that the Iowa Hawkeyes are the Rodney Dangerfield of college football.
