Iowa Head Coach Kirk Ferentz Said Hawkeyes Fans Smelled a Rat

Penn State lost quite a few notable players to injury during Saturday’s loss to No. 2 Iowa, including quarterback Sean Clifford and defensive tackle PJ Mustipher, and Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz said fans who booed certain Nittany Lions’ injuries weren’t stupid and smelled a rat, The Athletic’s Scott Dochterman reported.

In addition to Clifford and Mustipher, running backs John Lovett, Devyn Ford, safety Jaquan Brisker and defensive end Arnold Ebiketie also left the game with injuries. Ferentz, Dochterman reported, said he’s only suspected an opponent of taking a dive to slow momentum one other time.

With the loss, Penn State fell to 5-1 on the season and dropped back to No. 7 in the Week 7 AP Poll. With a bye week this week, the Lions will host Illinois in two weeks before heading to Columbus, Ohio for a huge game against Ohio State.
