The Hawkeyes dropped their second straight game against a ranked opponent after falling to No. 10 Penn State, 17-12.

Iowa grabbed the lead first in the first quarter on a 47-yard field goal from Keith Duncan. Penn State came back in the second quarter when KJ Hamler hurdled into the end zone on a 22-yard touchdown. Duncan did add a 24-yard field goal just before halftime to make it 7-6 Penn State.

In the second half, Iowa couldn't get anything going offensively with two turnovers, which Penn State turned into points.

Iowa did get a late touchdown from Brandon Smith, but wasn't able to get the ball back again.
