Start Time: 11:00 am CST


Penn State scored three touchdowns in a span of two minutes and 13 seconds during the first quarter and put the game away. They ended with 35 points in the quarter.

In 1983, the Hawks put up the most points against Penn State at home. They returned the favor by posting the most points against a Hayden Fry coached Iowa team.

Iowa punter Nick Gallery had a punt blocked which Penn State recovered for a touchdown during the scoring frenzy. Split end Demo Odems fumbled on the Hawkeyes' next possession and Penn State tailback Ki-Jana Carter scored on a 41-yard run one play later to make it 28-0.

QB Ryan Driscoll connected with Harold Jasper for a 26-yard TD before halftime, making the score 45-7 at the break.

Against the Penn State reserves, the offense came to life, led by Scott Slutzker with 8 catches for 80 yards and a TD catch from Driscoll. Matt Sherman threw a 26-yard TD pass to Odems in the 4th quarter. But the Lions still outscored Iowa in the 2nd half.

Penn State finished the year 12-0 with a win over Oregon in the Rose Bowl, but the national championship was awarded to undefeated Nebraska who defeated #3 Miami in the Orange Bowl. The Rose Bowl was not part of the Bowl Alliance.
