2-Minute Morning

Overreaction Monday: Why would anybody think PSU will beat a hot Iowa team this week?

Penn State played better in the second half of Nebraska’s 30-23 loss, and backup QB Will Levis moved the offense during a rally that fell just short. With Levis expected by most to start Saturday, there’s some optimism that the Nittany Lions can turn this season around.

Maybe they can.

But it will be very tough to do so this week against an Iowa team that has played terrific the past two weeks, routing Michigan State (49-7) and Minnesota (35-7). The Hawkeyes always give PSU fits, even when the Lions have a good team and are playing well, and we should expect the same this week.

Iowa is favored by 2 points.
