Oh man this is absolutely bruuuutal for Iowa and Iowa fans. The Hawkeyes had gone up with a touchdown late in the fourth quarter, overcoming a monster game from Saquon Barkley. But Penn State marched down the field before stalling out near the goal line for three straight plays.
That meant a decisive fourth and goal, with just four seconds left.
Here’s what happened:
Holy shit, what a final play.
It looked even better from the replay angles:
That’s a hell of a throw from Penn State’s sophomore quarterback Trace McSorley, and it looked like he had two receivers for the same throw there. What a great game in Iowa City. Penn State moves to 4-0, and will welcome a non-pushover Indiana to State College next weekend. Iowa falls to 3-1, but it’s hard to fault their showing tonight, and in a Big Ten West that’s as wide open as ever, the Hawkeyes aren’t out of it at all.
Oh, and there was another great moment as the Kinnick Stadium crowd waved to the newly opened children’s hospital overlooking the field.
They should just play every game there.
